TCC members are invited to join us for “Greenland a Mystical Fantasyland,” a virtual exploration via Zoom on Saturday, Aug. 14 (or Sunday, Aug. 15 for some time zones).
Our presenter is Jóhanna Eyjólfsdóttir, who, with her husband Jón Olafur Magnússon, founded Reykjavik-based HL Adventure. Their company provides destination management services for individuals and groups in Iceland and Greenland. Both Jón and Jóhanna are dedicated to sending clients home with a story to tell after a journey where they have learned, tasted and experienced things that have “wowed” and moved them and created a lasting memory.
On the TCC Zoom presentation, Jóhanna will share the inside scoop on traveling to Greenland and the vast variety of experiences available there, along with some information on the history and culture of this unique island to “set the stage.”
When not organizing Greenland trips, Jón and Jóhanna spend quality time with their granddaughters, do a lot of fishing and camping, and enjoy taking their dog Massi along on their own personal adventures!

From Lonely Planet’s Travel Book on Greenland:
“Ever since the 15th-century explorers returned from the distant north with wild and woolly tales of unicorns and citadels of ice, Greenland has been a semi-mythical destination. And it’s still a fantasy land come to life, with the aurora borealis, the vast tundra, monstrous glaciers that calve icebergs into the sea, and a coastline of glacial ice and ancient rock-the oldest on the planet. Its far-flung villages are visited by Mercedes in summer and dogsled in winter, and though supermarkets these days offer pineapples from Hawaii and tomatoes from Mexico, you can still grab a seal steak from the frozen goods section.”
