Depending on the weather and the forecast we, shape our course. Our first destination might be Hornbjarg and its towering bird cliffs. It is home to many seabirds during the short and intensive summer. Razorbills, Guillemots, Kittiwakes and Fulmars are the main inhabitants. They are fair game for the Arctic fox and her cups. Always luring and risking their own lives to secure an evening meal. The walks up the cliffs are breathtaking. It gives a great view into the Greenland Sund, over the bay and mountains to the East.
Setting off for Greenland we leave civilization behind and set off over the Atlantic towards the south of Greenland. Depending on the Ice prediction at that time will have to stay 100 miles out of the coast until we reach the bottom of Greenland as there is to much drift ice along the coast and the entrances to the fjords are hazardous.
Making our way to Nuuk, there will be several gorgeous fjords we can attempt to visit. With 22 days to get to Nuuk, the have plenty of time for some real exploring as well. Nuuk as a city is the largest and fastest growing city of Greenland. With over 17.000 inhabitants, it is still a small city. This gives you the opportunity to really experience how the local people live in Greenland. Historically, Nuuk had inhabitants long before the Vikings came there, even before the Inuits settled nearby, Nuuk was already a place where people gathered. Nuuk has an international Airport where you can fly to from Reykjavik.
