(Video) Russell Glacier in Greenland

[26/05/2014] The nearly 170km long Arctic Circle Trail in Greenland is situated on Greenland’s West coast and a popular long distance trek. The 25km extra trip east of Kangerlussuaq towards Russell Glacier is a perfect warm up and addition to the main trek. Together with my friend Tim, I explored the area in May 2014 and we set up the tents right in front of the impressive glacier. Read the rest of this entry »

Arctic Circle Trail in Greenland – German trip report

When people ask me for the best trip I have done so far, my answer is always the Arctic Circle Trail in Greenland. It might not have a landscape as spectacular as Patagonia, but due to the fact that we had to walk through waist deep snow, it turned into a challenging adventure that I will never forget. I have written a German trip report for wetraveltheworld.de now and will soon start working on the English version and video for my blog as well. So if you can read German, go ahead and check it out! 🙂

“WOOOOAH, I hope you got that!!”, bursts out of me as a huge iceberg calves off the Eqi Glacier right in front of our boat. After a short flight from Kangerlussuaq to Ilulissat, Tim and I made it to the Disco Bay, witnessing the ice masses up close after our warm up hike to the Russell’s Glacier. We will soon be facing two isolated weeks of hiking on the 165km Arctic Circle Trail and am now enjoying some days in the north, packed with more hikes to keep us in shape, lot’s of ice and a cute baby sled dog.

Russell Glacier Video from Greenland

#22_greenland_part1_russelglacier

I finally managed to cut another video! Due to the immense amount of clips from greenland (around 600…), I’m forced to split those into three main videos; the below being the first one following up on my recent trip report about our trek to the Russell Glacier in Greenland. Hope you enjoy watching it 🙂

A detour to the Russell Glacier is a common activity on the Arctic Circle Trail, allowing you to reach the inland ice of Greenland after a 25km hike from Kangerlussuaq. Joined by a total stranger, I am ready to go and full of excitement to set foot on the world’s biggest Island and last place to witness huge ice bergs outside of Antarctica.
