Due to Covid-19 pandemic no visitors have been able to come to the Red House in Tasiilaq since March 2020. To get through this difficult time some of our international guides have started a call for donations on GoFundMe. As of now, we have been able to attract an incredible number of donations and this really encourages us. It is unlikely that the coming winter season can happen and so we continue to hope for your support so that we can keep the house in Tasiilaq, and immediately rehire our staff when visits to Tasiilaq are possible again. Please have a look, share the campaign and support us! Even small amounts help!
++ We thank you from the depth of our hearts for your overwhelming support of our fundraising campaign.++

Una vita tra gli inuit. Alpinista estremo sotto i riflettori del mondo per molti anni, e poi umile testimone della lenta e forse inesorabile estinzione di una etnia millenaria con la quale ha voluto condividere più di vent‘anni di vita. Per capire.

THE RED HOUSE (2020)

Documentary by Francesco Catarinolo and Peter Bardehle about Robert Peroni and the Red House in Tasiilaq, East Greenland.

THE RED HOUSE tells the life story of the South Tyrolean adventurer Robert Peroni. He found new meaning for his life in East Greenland and is helping the last of Europe's hunters into the future.
Robert Peroni was known as an extreme athlete in the 1980s. He was the first to cross the Greenland ice sheet at it‘s widest point on foot. With the world record that he still holds today, he fell so much in love with the country and it‘s people that he decided to change his life. Instead of looking for more money and fame, he moved to the Far North with a new mission: He wanted to save the last hunter people in Europe from destruction.

Your dreams are about ice, snow and sun? Then the only destination is East Greenland

With its sheer endless glacier covered plateau Greenland is the paradise for all who love the winter, the silence, the snow and the sun - by foot, by ski, or by dog sledge - the traditional greenlandic way. Everybody finds fulfillment here in the crystal snow and ice: the ethusiastic nordic ski glider, the passionate alpine ski tourer, the extreme icewall and glacier climber. Recently the snow shoe hiking get's more and more popular for the hidden and wide valleys and smooth view point hills. And the latest finding: the fastest glacier of our planet flows with 15 to 20 km per year towards the crystal clear waters of Sermilik Fjord here in East Greenland.

Landkarte

East Greenland is exceptional

Ragged mountaintops rise steeply from the sea and winding fjords filled with sparkling colourful icebergs shape its landscape. Along Greenland’s east coast flows the world’s largest and longest ice stream, which carries all the drift-ice from the pole basin even from Siberia and Alaska. Let yourself be inspired by this elemental and virgin scenery.
