SEDNA Melville Bay expedition takes you to the pristine wilderness of Greenland, offering you a front-row seat to one of the most incredible natural phenomena in the world.

A Spectacular Natural Phenomenon

As September ushers in permanent daylight, a breathtaking phenomenon. The first open water leads form between the fast ice and the sea ice in the Arctic. This is the time when Narwahls embark on their migration, often in groups ranging from 3 to 5 individuals, and sometimes in gathering of up to 100, making their way towards Melville Bay in North Greenland.

A Journey with the Local Greenlanders

It’s at this moment that the local Greenlanders set out in their kayaks and tents, traveling by sled to reach the edge of the pack ice. Join SENA’s expedition, to camping alongside them, sharing their excitement as they eagerly anticipating the arrival of narwahls, belugas, and the awe-inspiring the polar bear.

Up-Close Encounter with Arctic Wildlife

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engage in kayaking or diving, allowing you to observe these incredible animals up close. Join the skilled hunters of Kullorsuaq, camping under the mesmerizing midnight sun on the pack ice’s edge while waiting for these magnificent creatures to grace you with their presence.

Unlock the Secrets of the Narwhal

Beyond observation, this experience offers you the opportunity to converse with the local Greenlanders about their almost mystical relationship with the narwhal, an animal that plays a pivotal role in their survival.

Traditional Modes of Transportation

In Melville Bay, the sled, pulled by a team of approximately 15 dogs, is your mean of authorized transportation. The kayak, known for its silent approach, is your chosen mode to get up close to the narwhals. The journey from Kullorsuaq to reach the edge of the pack ice takes less than a day by sled, weather and ice conditions permitting. Accommodation may vary between tents and a return to our house in Kullorsuaq.

Embracing the Arctic Elements

Prepare to experience temperatures ranging from -10°C to -5°C. At Upernavik, we will provide you with all the necessary equipment for the coldest weather, kayaking, and diving, including boots, gloves, cold-weather comforter, warm overalls, complete diving gear (dry suits, mask, fins, and snorkel), and traditional kayaks.

Guardians of a Unique Tradition
