As part of this season’s range of immersive experiences, Quark Expeditions has announced an expansion of its overnight camping opportunities for guests in Greenland.
“Camping overnight in the Polar Regions has long captured the imaginations of our guests,” says Thomas Lennartz, Vice-President of Sales for Quark Expeditions.
“We launched our first camping options in Antarctica, where guests could bed down for the night while gazing up at the indigo glow of an Antarctic night. Antarctic Camping has been such a huge success that we’re launching this season a new option for camping enthusiasts in the Arctic: the Greenland Camp Experience along the Tasermiut Fjord in South Greenland.”
This new Greenland Camp Experience adventure is available to those who book Quark’s brand-new itinerary Greenland Adventure: Explore by Sea, Land and Air.
“Overnight camping in South Greenland is by no means roughing it in the wild,” says Lennartz. “For starters, guests will travel on the technologically-advanced Ultramarine—which is equipped with two twin-engine helicopters and superb onboard amenities—and they’ll have the opportunity to join local Greenlandic hosts at one of the most exclusive camps in Greenland, located along the 70-km Tasermiut Fjord. Comfort and fine food, provided by a local chef, will be part of the camping experience—which is suitable for all ages and levels of ability.”
During the camping experience, guests will have time to walk through the landscapes and remote fjords of South Greenland, roam the tundra with a local chef who will showcase local ingredients, and then prepare an incredible meal.
This experience is available for $795.
Quark’s first camping experience, down south in Antarctica, invites guests to camp out on the snow for one night. The experience is limited to 50 people, all of whom are briefs on the principals of basic camping.
Prior to settling down for the night, Quark Expeditions staff prepares the campsite, including setting up a perimeter. Guests are free to choose where they want to settle down within the parameter in their ready-to-roll bivy sack. Tents can be used upon request.
Antarctic camping is available on select voyages for $295.
