Video Collection

[26/05/2014] Hiking the 25km from Greenland’s city of Kangerlussuaq to the Russell Glacier is a perfect warm up for the Arctic Circle Trail. You will pass an old airplane wreck along the way and set up your tent right in front of the impressive glacier! Check out this video for some impressions of the hike.

Russell Glacier in Greenland – Video

The Russell Glacier in Greenland is an impressive showcase of nature. It is hard to imagine that the immense ice sheet starting here actually covers most of the island! Complete mountain ranges are buried beneath the ice  and it was a humbling experience to see a tiny part of that ice sheet with my own eyes. We had a great time walking the 25km extension from Kangerlussuaq as a warm up for our upcoming 170km trek on the Arctic Circle Trail. Climbing Sugar Loaf mountain twice, we got to see the airplane wreck, spent one night sleeping right in front of the glacier and the second one near the waterfalls in a gorge on the way back. Check out the video for some more impressions and I hope you like it!
