Fjords, icebergs and Inuit, East Coast of Greenland

South of Ammassalik lay the grand folds and peninsulas of Greenland’s fjords – deep, steep-walled, glacier-carved valleys at the coast that long ago flooded with seawater. Here you’ll find newly minted glaciers, the creaking and groaning calving of icebergs, and the mighty icy mass of Greenland’s mountainous expanse. Step ashore to hike and you’ll be overwhelmed by the divine majesty of the landscape and perhaps see a herd of the large bovine inhabitants, the Musk Ox. Sitting quietly to contemplate this beauty is rewarding too, as is time spent with the Inuit communities who have made their homes here for time immemorial.
