Expedition Greenland – Getting There.
Taking off for Greenland wasn’t as easy as just booking a flight to Greenland and checking into our accommodation on arrival. It’s a complete logistical under taking. It’s a really long way away and you need more thank a backpack with an extra jumper and a few changes of underwear. It was 4 international flights from home in Japan with the last one a chartered twin otter flight from Northern Iceland. Add tons of luggage to the equation and it is a mission… and expensive! Trying to negotiate excess baggage in 4 languages is a massive task – but not as massive as having to excavate our living quarters on arrival with a few shovels!
