We are very much looking forward to our third winter season of snowmobile logistics and expedition support services in northeast Greenland. Operating out of Constable Point airport we have opened up cost effective snowmobile solutions for expeditions to Liverpool Land, Milne Land, Renland, Stauning Alps, and throughout the Scoresbysund Fjord district. Any group wishing to use this service are urged to contact us as soon as possible. There is great demand for transport during this very short season from mid March to mid May and early application is essential.

The World's leading operator of mountaineering, climbing and ski touring expeditions to Arctic Greenland !!

* The ONLY comprehensive website guide to Greenland mountaineering, ski-touring, snow boarding, kite skiing and ice cap crossing expeditions to Arctic Greenland.

* 24 years of research, planning, guiding and expertise.

* Unrivalled experience, highly focused, meticulous attention to detail.

We offer both guided Greenland expeditions and specialist expedition logistics packages for independent travelers and expeditioners. Our Greenland programme covers all the main mountaineering ranges and icecap journeys and crossings. We are the only Greenland expedition specialist offering tours and arctic expeditions to the Watkins Mountains of east Greenland, including ascents of all the highest mountains in the Arctic. We offer annual expeditions to Gunnbjornsfjeld (3693m), Dome (3682m) and Cone (3669m), the three highest peaks in the Arctic, as well as private logistics for independent groups.
We are the first company to offer guided snowboard expeditions to the Liverpool Land and Scoresbysund region of northeast Greenland as well as our excellent price busting ski touring and cross country ski expeditions. We were the first company to our offer guided icecap crossings and we have recently added heli skiing and first ski and snowboard descents of virgin summits to our programme. In addition to Greenland we run arctic expeditions to Svalbard, Spitsbergen, Baffin Island, Ellesmere Island and Jan Mayen island.
For over 20 years our main focus has been on opening up new mountain ranges and icecap crossings in east and northeast Greenland. It would be no exaggeration to say that Tangent alone has opened up nearly all the new climbing venues in east Greenland during that period. Our experience is unrivalled.

Using our privately chartered Twin Otter ski plane it has been possible to reach numerous new peaks, mountain ranges and glaciers that no previous expedition has ever climbed in before. Amongst our selves and our clients we have made close to a thousand first ascents of previously unclimbed peaks, summits and mountains throughout east and northeast Greenland.

Tangent operates an extensive logistics platform in east Greenland, including various aircraft, helicopter, snow mobile and dog sled options, to facilitate access to every conceivable region for the most discerning traveller. This experience has led Tangent to become the primary choice for TV companies wishing to film in and amongst the mountains and glaciers of Greenland. We have worked with many military expeditions and were consultants and expedition organisers for the US Navy LA-9 crash investigation and recovery expedition on the Kronborg Glacier in 2004. Between 2010 and 2011 we will co-ordinate the logistics for the follow up expedition to Antarctica to recover the human remains of the servicemen killed in the Thurston Island George 1 disaster.

If you have any questions at all or would just like to chat about Greenland expeditions in general please feel free to give me a call on 015395 63599 or mobile 07887 556089. Our total commitment to serving the Greenland expedition community.

Please note !! We are aware of other websites that contain significant errors and misrepresentations regarding first ascents in Greenland. Please contact us for FULL and UNBIASED ADVICE on any aspect of your proposed expedition. Several areas are being advertised as offering first ascents of new peaks in areas that our experience and research clearly show have been climbed by groups that didn't produce reports. Some are areas that we ourselves have climbed in extensively for many years! Our own dedicated Greenland Map Room and Library is the most comprehensive collection of Greenland mountaineering and first ascent records and reports anywhere in the world. If you're considering an expedition to Greenland please feel free to call us for impartial advice.
