i’m terribly sorry about the super late review.

i visited southern Greenland in Aug 2018 - one of the best trips i’ve had in my life and a big part was attributed to Anna and her team! Anna was my guide and, i was very blessed, we were the only ones on this tour! It was Anna’s first time officially guiding and it was my first time officially camping in the wild. we were there in tasermiut fjord for 4 days, 3 nights, and Anna and her team made me feel super comfortable throughout the trip. The tents were well made and new; the sleeping bags and air mattress made me feel as if i was rooming out under the stars in a hotel! every day, we’d hike to a different part and explore different places. the fjord was indeed a beauty to behold. Anna was enthusiastic, sharing almost everything she knew about the place and she also made sure i was safe. On the third night, we spent it in a nearby summer school - a rare privilege as her coworker, Salik was bringing the teenagers from nearby Narnortalik for a quick getaway to impart them some survival skills and they were bunking it out at the summer school.

Tasermiut was one of the hardest places to get to and these folks are able to get you there. would highly recommend. cheers!

In August and September 2022, I spent about 10 days backpacking through South Greenland.

I normally do trips like this solo, but given some of the logistical challenges of Greenland (no roads, hiking on trailless tundra, limited online information), and the small chance of coming across a polar bear, I decided to work with a guide service, and was lucky enough to find Tasermiut Camp.

The trip was everything I'd hoped for and more. My guide, Erneeraq, led me through some of the most unspoiled and beautiful land I've ever seen. The hiking and photography opportunities were some of the best I've ever experienced on a backpacking trip, the local food was amazing, I met some wonderful people, and I got to experience the beauty of Greenlandic culture.

I flew into Narsarsuaq, then took a helicopter to Qaqortoq, and then a boat to Nanortalik. From Nanortalik, Erneeraq and I would take a Zodiac raft into a fjord, backpack through one of the valleys, go back to the raft, and then repeat. We spent most of our time in Tasermiut, Torsukattak, and Kangikitsoq fjords.

Erneeraq and Salik (one of the owners of Tasermiut Camp, who helped plan my itinerary) have extensive knowledge of the area, which is important both for safety and simply to ensure that we hiked as efficiently as possible. For example, they knew where to hike through the trailless tundra to minimize bushwacking, the best places to ford the many rivers we crossed, etc. They're also just all-around great guys. Before the trip, I spoke with both of them on the phone a couple of times to get to know each other and firm up details. We built flexibility into our schedule since the weather in Greenland is unpredictable. And on the hikes, Erneeraq was great at gauging my energy levels and comfort with the terrain.

I'm really grateful for Salik and Erneeraq's experience and expertise, and for helping me take this trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend Tasermiut Camp for anyone considering a trip to South Greenland.

This past August myself and two colleagues spent an incredible 5 days at Tasermiut Camp. Our company is finalizing a partnership with them for operations starting in 2021 and we were doing a site visit and inspection. We couldn't have been more impressed and are now very excited about our plans to bring our clients to the camp next year.

It was such a phenomenal and soul-soothing experience. To be surrounded but such beautiful scenery and welcomed by such passionate and incredible hosts was overwhelming. We had beautiful weather and Northern Lights on almost every night! In an time where connecting with nature, and disconnecting from everything else, is perhaps more important than ever I believe there is no better place to have that experience than at Tasermiut Camp. Well done to the camp team and I look forward to coming back again, would recommend this experience to anyone!

Our trip to south Greenland was in a spectacular league of its own compared to previous journeys. Salik was our guide over the course of several weeks, and readily planned the tour based on both our preconcieved and spontaneous wishes. We were exposed to a variety of unbelieveable landscapes and nature, and besides visiting some interesting historical and cultural sites en route. Salik is good company, knowledgeable on local wildlife and fouraging, a responsible navigator, and a really great cook. Absolute highligts from the trip include: 3-day hike off Tasermiut fjord, local sheep hearding, catching (and eating) trouts barehand.

Tasermiut Camp arranged a very nice boat trip with South Greenland Boat Charter 44 into the bottom of the Tasermiut fjord with a few stops along the way. The boat was closed and comfortable which was nice in the October chill. Captain and guide, Erneq and Erneeraq did great jobs.

We were in Nanortalik on August 29, 2019 on the Caribbean Princess. I was in email contact with Freddy who was patient and helpful, and answered all my questions in a timely and friendly manner. When we arrived, Freddy was there to greet us right in front of the tender drop-off point. We had a bit of a delay leaving, but the tour went off fabulously, and I think they gave us more time than scheduled because of the delay. The boat was clean and reliable (and had a small bathroom), and the captain and tour guide (for the 6 of us) were excellent, friendly and competent. The 1 hr 15 min or so boat ride to the Uunartoq hot springs was gorgeous, traveling through southern Greenland's fjords and mountains. We arrived at the springs and walked up (maybe a quarter mile?? Less?) to the springs from the boat dock. As promised, the spring was clear and perfectly bathtub warm. We sat and enjoyed the icebergs in the fjord behind us. Heaven! The scenery was amazing and it felt very remote, and spectacular. One of the six passengers had a physical limitation which made it difficult for them to get back to the boat and the captain, without complaint or request for anything carried that passenger on his back, back to the boat. Very kind and above the call of duty. The tour guide was very kind and very knowledgeable when we asked her questions. Both the captain and the tour guide were also always minding the time to make sure we didn't miss our ship which was also appreciated. Definitely worth doing and I would recommend the tour most highly, as well as Tasermiut Camp for hire to do that tour. We did have two kids, but they were well behaved and there was no issue.

For our visit to Tasermiut fjord we opted for the camp trip which was tailored to our schedule - arriving in Nanortalik at 11am, departing 6:45pm the next day. This was our first time camping so we had lots of questions that Salik (co-owner) answered beforehand via email.

Day 1: Anna received us from the heliport (walking distance from their office) and gave us a brief introduction to Nanortalik. We then left in a private boat (with a roof) along with another tourist couple who had opted for a short day trip in the fjord, with Anna as our guide.

I was very keen on seeing the ‘open book mountain’ on the way, they (Anna and the young captain... can’t remember his name) made sure I saw it. They were very accommodating anytime we wanted to take pictures outside they slowed down for us.

At the camp site we met up with Salik who was setting things up. The backdrop was mountains and lakes. The perfect retreat.

Our camp was equipped with a petroleum heater, sleeping mats, sleeping bag as well as tissue roll. The camps were very solid, despite heavy rain through the night we had a comfortable uninterrupted sleep. Almost like glamping.

Whilst in the Fjord we visited the ‘planted’ forest where Salik and Anna introduced us to various Greenlandic herbs - which we would use for dinner! We spent time chatting with them where they gave us more insight into Greenlandic life and culture. They prepared dinner fresh for us in the camps (today's catch of the day). We had a great time relaxing and just casually talking like we had been friends for ages after dinner until we got tired...

Day 2: Weather was very rainy to begin with.

They had already thought of alternative activity options for the rest of our day.

After breakfast we put our waterproofs on and went fishing.

Once the weather started clearing Anna and Salik kindly brought our bags down to the water where we were fishing (saving us a trip back to the camp) ready for our hike. This was an alternative route on a gravel path rather than muddy path. We stopped by one of the sheep farms on the way and visited their barn.

Salik stayed back to clean up and go back to mainland while we continued to hike with Anna for approx 4 hours to a village from where we were picked up and sailed back to mainland. We were able to stop for photos whenever we wanted. The walk itself isn't difficult, but Anna was kind enough to offer and take my backpack.

Throughout the trip they provided snacks (on the boat as well as the hike), dinner and breakfast.

Anna and Salik (as well as the captain) were our main contact, they were all very friendly and approachable, it was a pleasure doing this trip with them!

This was an individually tailored trip, everyones experience will be different but hopefully this gave you an idea of what to expect! Thanks so much to the team for a memorable few days in Greenland!

We arrived in Nanortalik on the Pacific Princess. We had prebooked a trip to the Icecap up Tasermiut Fjord independently of our cruise. Communication with Tasermiut Camp was very good. Our main contract was with Freddy.
The tour itself was excellent. There were four of us with two guides. Both were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area we were visiting. It took about 2 hours to reach the head of the Fjord but we stopped at various points for viewing of icebergs, glaciers, a fishing trawler catching snow crab and to view Musk Ox.
At the head of the Fjord we were able to disembark and actually walk to the ice cap itself. We could see we the icecap had retreated which was concerning. The same could be said for the glaciers that we were saw during trip up the Fjord.
Overall it was a excellent trip and well worth doing.

I emailed this tour company and had discussions before my trip but could not find an open tour.

On arrival I saw their name and found they now had several tours available including a trip to the ice shelf and one to the Viking church.

Whilst the ice shelf tour fitted my schedule it was cutting it fine so took the Viking church trip. 4 passengers, a guide and a driver. We introduced ourselves, 2 from Germany, one from Denmark and me from Australia.

Guide was friendly, informative and the driver clearly knew how to handle the boat.

We suited up with overalls to protect from wind and headed of in a motorised rubber boat that flew across the water. We arrived 20 mins later to a lovely scene. So quiet and beautiful. Whilst the church was the reason we came it was the scale and beauty of the scene. So quiet and still. We spent an hour at the church learning about the history.

On the way back we sighted 2 humpback whales and stopped to look and also looked at an Iceburg. Such beauty.

A well organised tour with a great guide, friendly and made you feel important.

We scheduled a trip with this company. On the day of the trip NO ONE showed up, but they kept our $460. We've been trying to get our money back which they said they would do. I wouldn't trust this company. BEWARE!!!
