The Island of Milneland on Greenland’s east coast provides an easily accessible, heavily glaciated, wilderness mountain environment that is rarely visited.Most of the mountains in the area selected to be visited are unclimbed.The objectives of this expedition are to set up a base camp in the heart of the Milneland mountains and then to make as many first ascents and of the numerous 2000m peaks that are found in this area as time and weather conditions allow.

Itinerary

Day 1 Friday Flight to Reykjavik in Iceland, where we will spend the night in a guesthouse (B&B) after sampling the nightlife of the city (Friday night is a big night in Reykjavik!)
Day 2 Saturday We will take a late morning flight from Reykjavik to Scoresbysund - Constable Point, where we will be met and transported into the mountains by skidoo. Once we are dropped off roughly 25km up the Korridoren Glacier we will be on our own and camping.
Days 3-13 Sunday – Wednesday week Climbing. We will climb, explore and bag as many first ascents as time and weather conditions allow.
Day 14 Thursday Rest day at the pick-up base camp preparing to leave.
Day 15 Friday Travel by skidoo back out of the mountains to the airport at Constable Point. The night will be spent in the airport accommodation.
Day 16 Saturday The flight back to Reykjavik, which on the return leg goes via the settlement of Kulusuk further to the south.
Day 17 Sunday If flight times allow we can do some sight-seeing around Reykjavik (Gulfoss Waterfall, Geyser, Blue Lagoon etc) before catching our flights home.

Comments
With no technical climbing and low altitude this trip is suited to mountain lovers who wish to experience the isolation of this Arctic wilderness. By using touring skis to approach the peaks we will maximize our climbing time and peak bagging potential.

Accommodation

Two nights in Snorri’s Guesthouse while in Rekjavik at the beginning and end of the trip. Camping in tents while in the mountains and a night in the airport bunkhouse at constable point before flying back to Reykjavik.
