Tangent Expeditions began in 1989 when owner and director Paul Walker organised his first two month expedition to East Greenland. Since then, he’s gone on to organise over 250 expeditions all over Greenland, becoming the leading expert in his field. He has guided many of these himself and now works with a team of highly qualified guides.
Constable Point Facility
In 2011 Tangent Expeditions developed a logistics platform and storage facilities at the remote airstrip of Constable Point. The nearby mountains of Liverpool Land provide easy access to stunning glaciers and fjords. Travelling further afield into the National Park rewards guests with unclimbed summits, untouched landscapes and a true wilderness experience.
Tangent Expeditions’ guides are self employed and accompany groups passing through Constable Point throughout the main expedition seasons. Having access to our own snowmobiles and inflatable SIB boats allows clients to receive the best possible support throughout their expedition.
Specialist guides lead ski touring, mountaineering, snowshoeing and climbing trips. We have recently added a fleet of sea kayaks, paving the way for guided and self guided paddling trips in the remote arctic as part of a package arrangement.
All Tangent tours start and finish in Iceland, with clients making their own way to the appropriate meeting point, transiting through Constable Point on their way to the mountains and fjords.
We specialise in providing top-end logistical support and guiding in northeast Greenland. Our guided expeditions and training courses have participants from all walks of life and cater to all abilities. We also provide bespoke logistics to self guided skiing, kayaking and climbing expeditions.
Corporate groups can enjoy a real challenge in Greenland. We have specialist staff in leadership and personal development and offer a one week corporate programme. Tangent can also provide custom consultancy and logistics services to TV & film productions and scientific & mining operations.
We also organise custom trips to other parts of Greenland, including hiking and sailing on the west coast.
