It was early winter when we returned to Greenland... Haunting reflections filled the freezing bays and fresh snow was all around. It really was a mystical trip, with mysterious light!
The newly formed sea ice crunched and cracked beneath the rubber keel as the outboard chewed its way through the frozen fjord. Carnage from collapsed glaciers littered the surface, weird formations floated on the crunchy sea, and topsy-turvy icebergs hovered in silence. This was our monumental platform as we cruised in close proximity to massive chunks of ice in the giant fjords.
Being this close to massive chunks of ice is incredible. It's a rush, it's exhilarating and exciting! I love being in the Zodiacs, cruising the fjords and dodging icebergs in the narrow channels. I love the thrill of going into unknown territory in a small rubber boat! I love bobbing up and down on a gentle sea with the cold air on my face, and I love the chance wildlife encounters.
This part of Greenland is truly magnificent and peaceful - we visited some amazing places and saw incredible scenes with remarkable lighting! However, after visiting the small community of Ittoqqortoormiit, a storm hit us -
we had to head back across the Denmark Strait to Iceland on a bumpy North Atlantic.
