The East Greenland – Scoresby Sund cruise crosses the Arctic Circle into the home waters of multiple species of whale. The expedition will spot huge icebergs as it journeys into the largest and deepest fjord system in the world. Along the way the Northern Lights is guiding our way.
Kayak Skills Progression Camp: Ever wanted to join a course that teaches useful and effective kayaking skills?
Now there’s a chance to learn from the experts. We’re now offering our Kayak Skills Progression Camp, in cooperation with TRAK, to an exclusive group of four to eight kayakers. Participants will be split into two groups of four people, and each group will be offered one outing per day (AM or PM) of about one to two hours.
We hope for four activity days, subject to local conditions.
Kayaking is a supplemental activity that includes the use of TRAK single-seater kayaks, PFD´s and dry suits for the duration of the trip. There will be no supplement for kayakers who bring their own TRAK kayak and dry suit. Basic kayaking experience is helpful but not a requirement. Physical fitness, however, is essential.
It can be breezy and cool in the early day, so kayakers must bring their own protective clothes and warm thermal layers.
The camp is aimed at beginners and intermediate kayakers who will enjoy kayaking in sheltered fjords, bays, and small secluded harbors. It’s a fun activity in a leisurely format, yet the course will focus on education and skills progression.
State-of-the-art, industry leading single-seater touring kayaks engineered by TRAK will be provided on the ship. At midday kayakers will return for lunch aboard the vessel, afterward swapping activities with the hiking group. All kayak outings will be under the guidance of an experienced kayak guide who will take into account the experience and physical fitness levels of the participants.
Kayak groups will also be escorted by one Zodiac boat for safety. Kayaking routes cannot be determined in advance, because local conditions will have an influence on the final program. The map outlines a possible but not final itinerary, as all itineraries are subject to change.
