We cross the Disko Bay and sail along the coast of Disko Island. This unusual island rises dramatically from the sea with its basalt cliffs with characteristic flat tops. We’ll sail between the giant icebergs, which look a little less giant here than when we sail around the mouth of the Icefjord. Again we notice the light and air, clarity, and again it is hard to calculate how long it takes before we pass a given point or an iceberg. Visibility is huge, and we underestimate the distance ….. every time. The chances of seeing whales and seals are very good in this area. Perhaps we’ll even spot the huge Greenlandic whale, which is often seen around Qeqertarsuaq at springtime. It is warm and comfortable indoors, where coffee and tea is being served. It is also possible to buy other drinks etc. Another option is to be outside on the deck and feel the air, wind and sun in body and soul.
Upon arrival we’ll go for a walk in the city with a local guide. We’ll look at the cultural gems and continue through town to the Red River, where humpback whales often gambol at the mouth of the river. Along the way we pass a number of natural phenomena a volcanic island has to offer. Among other things we’ll see one of the hot springs and taste the life-giving water. The spring is located at the Arctic Station, which is the world’s most northern research station. For more than 100 years this has belonged to the University of Copenhagen.
