Itinerary:
Greenland Trekking Expedition - July 5 to 15, 2022. Lusting for a chance to experience true remoteness? We have organized a trekking expedition for Greenland for July 9-19 2021. Highlights include visiting a small Inuit hunting community, views of the Denmark Strait, vistas of glacier snouts, and calving glaciers in the Sermiligaq Fjord. The trip is based out of Kulusuk, Greenland, a settlement of 267 people in the Sermersooq municipality in southeastern Greenland, located on an island of the same name. Kusuluk has daily direct flights to Reykjavik, Iceland. The trekking will be supported by boat, but will be very rugged due to the complete absence of any formal trails. There will be no technical climbing, but there will be river fords, straight forward scrambling and some glacier travel. This is a unique opportunity to visit a very remote location that is virtually untouched by tourism. Contact Steve Fedyna at fedynas@shaw.ca for more details.
Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!


*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non- recoverable costs).
The Calgary Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is a not for profit / flow through course and trip provider. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
