You can design your experience by choosing from the list of activities that we offer below.
That said, we do have a few standard elements on the first day of your stay with us in order facilitate a successful stay.
MEET AND GREET
A Nomad will be waiting for you at the luggage conveyor to assist with luggage and ensure your arrival goes smoothly. Then, you will be whisked away on a quick tour of the city.
Your guide will then provide final details about the upcoming adventures, ensure that everyone has the necessary gear, and will help repack your luggage in waterproof duffels. You will then be taken to the harbour, where our boat will escort you to the luxury camp.
After leaving civilization, we will take you on a cruise through one of the oldest places on Earth. Enjoy the feeling of freedom as your busy life and worries fade away.
The cruise is about 80km long, deep into the world's second largest fiord system. Along the way, we will scout for humpback whales which often traverse these waters. This is where your adventure begins. Lean back, relax, and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful sights.
Once we reach the camp, we will take you on a short hike to the beautiful waterfall behind the camp.
This is the final activity of the day, and the hike itself is brief. That said, it does demand a little bit of stamina. It is designed to give us an idea of the group's overall physical abilities, and is well worth it: the breathtaking view of the Kiattua valley is one you won't soon forget.
All the below mentioned activities are optional, you are free to tailor your own unique experience from our selection. With exception of the helicopter tour, they are all a part of the total package. You are free to choose one to two activities pr. day in the camp.
