forskellige ture, vi har rejst individuelt, hvor vi hver især har vandret i forskellige lande og landskaber og opdaget naturens mangfoldighed. Disse erfaringer var baggrunden for, at vi besluttede at kombinere vores erfaringer og tage tilbage til Grønland i år. Denne gang går turen til Ammassalik-området på østkysten med et andet hold. Florian som fotografen, Louis som forfatter og Lucille som både forfatter og læge. Et team, vi kalder »The Wildlanders«. Men hvad er væsentligt? For os er det et fælles ønske om at gøre det bedste, vi kan, for gennem lange gåture at opleve og bevæge os mod det ukendte og efterlade naturen uberørt. Se og dele mere Det er afgørende for os, at de dyrebare steder forbliver vilde og uspolerede, og set i et større perspektiv, at vise stederne for mange flere ved at dele billeder og tekst med resten af verden. Dermed håber vi aldrig at glemme, hvordan der var, da stederne måske ikke er her i fremtiden på grund af konkurrencen om naturressourcerne, den globale opvarmning, osv. Vi besluttede at starte vores projekt med Grønland og lave en fotobog og udstillinger. Billeder fortæller en historie og kan deles med mange i løbet af et par sekunder i vores elektroniske verden. Så det er vores håb, at vi kan vise folk smukke steder på vores planet på den måde, de fortjener at blive set.

Meet Greenland A refreshingly unique tour of Greenland through the inspiring and breathtaking landscapes and astounding biodiversity.

We are a group of people, who all have a great passion for travelling and discovering natural beauty. From this grew a taste for adventure which lead us on our first journey to Greenland in July 2014, where we hiked and kayaked for five weeks in the Southern Region. We began in Narsaq and the surrounding area, then travelled to Nanortalik, before reaching the wonderful Tasermiut Fjord, well known for its granite mountains. The team ended the journey at the Qooroq Glacier which poured its ice into the fjord. When we, Cédric, Florian, and Louis, boarded the plane to South Greenland/ Kujalleq, we couldn't have imagined the wide variety of feelings we would experience during the month we were there. We were impressed by the majesty of the mountains, humbled by the glacier's magic, moved by the translucent flow-

ing water we crossed, and truly inspired by the people in Greenland. In other words our team was deeply moved by this country. Coming back A Tibetan proverb says that travelling is a coming back to what is essential. We had already experienced how true this sentence can be, through the different journeys we had taken on our own, wandering through countries and landscapes to discover their multiple faces. Benefitting from those experiences, we decided to combine our knowledge and go back to Greenland this year. This time, it will be to the Ammassalik area on the East coast, with a slightly different team; Florian as the photographer, Louis as the writer, and Lucille as both writer and doctor. We call ourselves »The Wildlanders«.
