During the summer of 2005 I led an exploratory trekking trip to the Arabetoppe region of southeast Milne Land. From July 22 to August 5,2006 I was back, leading another trekking group to the western end of this large island, deep inside Scoresby Sund. We made a number of easy first ascents in the vicinity of N 70° 25', W 27° 49'. The trip involved uncomfortable access by open boat through heavy pack ice for more than 200km. We also encountered musk ox and were involved in a narwhal hunt on the return journey
