... opportunity to walk on the glacier, the shortest organised walk is four hours, the weather is now a little better but we decide it may be too much in the inclement situation. Not completely deterred we find a path that we can strike out on our own in the direction of the glacier.

Every year there are multiple deaths of both tourists and locals who dare to take on the Glazier, many ...

... lagoon opened to the sea, but the gap was too narrow for most of the glaciers to get out and they caused a log jam in the opening until they melted sufficiently to float free. It must have been very full of fish because the seabirds were going crazy over the water. The Arctic Terns were nesting on the ground there and going crazy trying to keep people away from their chicks. There was one area where three sheep were just ambling through and the terns were ...
