Qeqertarsuaq, Greenland – Thursday, August 9

After a smooth and rapid transit of the Davis Strait, those on deck before breakfast witnessed our expedition ship negotiating the narrow tricky entrance into the harbor of our first Greenlandic town, Qeqertarsuaq. The town lies on Disko Island and was once an important whaling centre. The attractive little town with its multi-coloured houses lay under towering 1,000 metre bluffs.  and with the iceberg-dotted ocean, made for a postcard picture setting.
