Icecamp Greenland – it all started with the right location
Protected from the mighty Piteraq (storms from the ice sheet), clean drinking water (note: absolutely fantastic water quality!), accessibility by boat in summer and dog sleds in winter, a little phone reception – which saves expensive calls with the satellite phone and last but not least the view and all the ice you can wish in reach. The location of the ice camp could not be better.
