Anden dagen byder på en diset sol og kølig luft. Som en forsmag på turen til indlandsisen tager vi med turbussen op på de sydlige bjerge for at se om vi kan finde Moskusokser. På vej op af den stejle vej til toppen se vi 3 Moskusokser stå på det grønne område nede ved floden. De er langt væk, så jeg tager et billede for dokumentationens skyld. Lidt længere oppe af vej springer en Moskusokse væk fra vej, og er desværre over alle bjerge inden jeg når at få taget et billede. Turen går videre op på toppen og over på den anden side af bjergkammen hvor der er et godt blik ind til indlandsisen. Efter at have fået en sandwich til frokost, var vi klar til dagens store udflugt. Turen til indlandsisen. Isen ligger 38 ... read more

Så kom vi til Grønland. Efter en flyvetur på på 4 timer og 40 minutter ankommer vi 40 minutter efter vi er startet til Kangerlussuaq eller Sønder Strømfjord. Klokken er dermed lidt i 10 om formiddagen og der er klar til oplevelse lige med det samme. Efter lidt introduktion og formiddagskaffe er der tid til lige at få gjort udstyret klart for derefter at sætte sig ud i den strålende sol som brager ned fra en skyfri himmel. Det er kommet helt bag på os så vi måtte lige skifte til noget tyndere tøj. Kangerlussuaq er egentlig bare en lufthavn og en gammel amerikansk flybase med noget by omkring. Men det der gør stedet attraktivt er naturen unden for byen. Den første udflugt gik derfor ud i landskabet for at se hvad der var at byde ... read more

Preparing for The Arctic Circle Trail It is drawing closer to the time when I will need to pack my trusted rucksack for another adventure. The spare room is amass with equipment all to be packed in a bag I'll carry on my back for nearly three weeks. The vast majority of the cluttered kit pile consists of packet after packet of dehydrated food. url=http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7065qNk07Ks/UdWmJqajlCI/AAAAAAAAE2c/zJfMk2Uoi-Y/s400/Ikkattook+accommodation+hut.jpgimg=http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-7065qNk07Ks/UdWmJqajlCI/AAAAAAAAE2c/zJfMk2Uoi-Y/s320/Ikkattook+accommodation+hut.jpg rightOne of a handful of ti... read more

Repeat after me...We are flying to Kangerlussuaq! I know, you are going to ask me Kanger what? Well, if you are here you already know we are speaking of Greenland. But first I want to thank my friend Hugues for helping me to make this trip a reality. We have to thank few other people, but we will not name them here. Our last “boys” trip was exactly three years ago to Sydney. This time it would be less wine, and more cold weather. Kangerlussuaq is the main airport hub of Greenland. There are currently only 2 international flights to Greenland. The first one is on a small Dash aircraft twice a week from Reykjavik, and the second one, actually the main one is from Copenhagen. Air Greenland has only one A330 and few little Dash, ... read more

Even though I only spent three and a half days in Greenland, I am in love. I arrived at the airport early Monday morning, groggy but excited, only to find out that our 0915 flight to Kangerlussuaq has been delayed six hours. An ominous start to the trip, yes, but I spent that time productively, befriending some classmates and spending the meal vouchers the airport gave us. Long story short, our flight was cancelled to due technical problems with the one plane that Air Greenland owns for flights between Kangerlussuaq and Copenhagen. Kangerlussuaq is the largest airport in Greenland, and the only point of entry by air. There is only one flight between Copenhagen and Kangerlussuaq everyday, and the airport is the only reason Kangerlussuaq exists. The original airstrip was built by the USA, and the ... read more

I just got back from GREENLAND! If i could describe Greenland in a few words, they would be: snowy, cold, and rather barren. The trip was really eventful, starting with day one. I woke up with a really sore throat. Our flight was supposed to depart from Copenhagen at 9:30am on Monday. When all 30 of us arrived at the airport at 7:30 to check in, they told us the flight was to be delayed until 2pm due to mechanical issues with the Air Greenland plane. We were all tired and upset with this information, but we made the best out of the wait, getting to know each other. Unfortunately as 2pm came around, they continued to push the time back further and further. Finally at 4pm they announced that they were canceling the flight. We ... read more
