Hiking In Ilullissat and cruising in the icebergs

... of floating ice that grew progressively larger as the captain piloted us to and fro avoiding the larger floating chunks. Before long, we were among the big bergs (50-300' high). They were all "stuck" because with 90% below water, the 300-400' channel depth did not allow passage. Only after they melt and break up do they escape to the open sea. Apparently, calving from the already freed icebergs is uncommon and heralded by a distinctive noise. In spite of this comforting insight, ...

... path around the back of the bank -- decidedly primitive but it coughed out Danish Kroner OK. It was much more of a complete general store and even had major appliances. There really are folks here that sell refrigerators to Eskimos. Some exciting views of the glacial ice beckoned but we opted to go back and get our room.

Our final full day in Greenland is gorgeous, with clear skies and brilliant sun reflecting on a sea that seems full of ice. We have no idea what has happened overnight, but there are many more small icebergs today, and they are cramming into the harbor. We take a small whale-watching boat just large enough for our group plus one lucky lady from Germany. It is fast and comfortable, but it feels like we ...

After two days of long and strenuous activities, we have a relaxing day today with free time up until 4:15pm. We have a leisurely breakfast, and then most of us walk into town to do some shopping. Our adventure today is a one hour boat cruise through the icebergs to the small whaling village of Oqaatsut. There are strict quotas on whaling now, so the village has developed other means of support with government assistance. Whale is on the menu for ...
