FLIGHTS FROM ICELAND TO FAROE ISLANDS
After landing in the Faroe Islands and meeting the guide, we will kick off the trip by heading to the iconic, colorful village of Bour. Your guide Arni Valur and RAX will greet you upon arrival.
DAY 2 TO 5
ACTIVITIES & VISITS
Enjoy the stay in the small village of Kap Tobin with no permanent inhabitants except during spring months when the hunters use their houses as a base for the daily hunting trips to the ice edge. The location offers superb views of the distant mountains of Scoresby Sund fjord.
During your stay various activities are planned:
1) Day trip with local Inuit hunter on dog sledge (approx 6 hrs). Depending on ice conditions the hunter will bring you close to the ice edge where you may be lucky to spot some local wild life. The hunter might try and hunt a seal (if this is acceptable to you).
2) Snowmobile activities: During your stay we will use snowmobiles as means of transportation to explore the amazing Arctic nature and try to spot a polar bear. We will plan each day/destination in cooperation with local hunters in order to maximize the possibility of spotting bears. We will visit Kap Hope (a deserted village) and the Apuseq glacier for a fantastic view along the East coast of Liverpool Land and a perfect vantage point for spotting local wild life in the area.
3) You will get the chance to taste local food, such as muskox, polar bear, walrus etc (type of meat depending on availability each time).
From the house in Kap Tobin we are uniquely situated to observe the hunters as they go about their daily routines – checking seal holes, or preparing to start a hunting trip. Being so close to the ice edge offers a great opportunity to spot polar bears on their migration route further north along the coast. The hunters are always on the look out!
4) A village tour around Ittoqqortoormiit village, visit the museum and other places of interest and have a chance to observe the Inuit village at its daily routine.
