Explorers' Corner's 16-day sea-kayaking expedition through seven of Greenland's remote fjords isn't luxurious—accommodations are a tent pitched on permafrost, and some meals come freeze-dried. But the payoff is worth it: expansive views of the five-mile-wide Knud Rasmussen Glacier calving into the Tasiilaq Fjord. A 1.5-hour flight from Reykjavík, Iceland, and a two-hour skiff ride with an Inuit hunter are required to reach Tasiilaq (pop. 2,000) and the mouth of the fjord. From there, spend your days dodging motel-size icebergs in your 18-foot kayak and hiking beside 4,000-foot peaks. Three departures in July and August; by application, From $3,890; explorerscorner.com
