Expedition Northwest Greenland

'Ultima Thule' has been a legendary unknown on the edge of the map for centuries. Remote, harsh, and starkly beautiful, Northwest Greenland amazes at every turn. Today part of Greenland's Avannaata ('Northern') Municipality, with area the size of France and only eleven thousand inhabitants, nature like this simply doesn't exist elsewhere in the world.

Generations of paleo-Eskimo cultures have migrated from Canada to the rest of Greenland through this area before the pyramids were being built, the last arriving by dog sled from Ellesmere Island into the Thule area only one hundred and fifty years ago. Perhaps because of their isolated location, Northern Greenlanders are some of the friendliest people in the country, and are always delighted to welcome visitors. Wind, waves and ice have carved this landscape, and continue to govern all aspects of life here, for locals and visitors alike. The stark rock layers of the mountains are usually dusted with snow, which can fall at any time of the year. Locals use their packs of shaggy dogs to navigate this stark wilderness, and dog sledding here is possible into the early Summer; the extreme cold of the area means the sea ice often doesn't break until mid-May. Locals use boats to get around in the brief summer months to hunt the pods of narwhals and belugas which migrate through the area annually, and seals are hunted year-round, living a lifestyle barely changed for thousands of years.
