This gallery features a voyage down the Kangerlussuag fjord up the coast to Ilulissat, Greenland. It was part of a trip which ended unexpectedly after 4 days due to the ship's engines failing. The landscape is dramatic and severe, yet life flourishes. The retreating glaciers and melting ice are clearly evident when you visit.
