That's great that you don't have to carry a tent! That should lighten your load quite a bit! Sounds like a wonderful hike, enjoy!

The trip will be 5 days long and except when we walk on a glacier, it will be hiking over rocky terrain. We'll see s fjord, the ruins of Eric the Red's Viking settlement and lots of amazing natural beauty. The interior is covered in ice all the time, but the southern coast, where we will be hiking, will be free of snow and ice (except for the glacier). The first and last night are in hostels and the middle 3 in tents (though we don't have to carry them). I am going with my grown up son, as his wife din't want to do Greenland. It should be really exciting.

There are lot's of hiking opportunities in Canada, though I haven't done any yet. Algonquin Park is a great example. We went on hikes there when I was a kid. Rocks and fir trees and many lakes.

I am 62 years old and am training to go hiking in Greenland with my son this summer. While I am an avid walker, this will be my first try at real hiking. I am joining this site in the hopes of connecting with hikers, from whom I might gain insight and encouragement.
