Eternity Fjord, Greenland

Sep 01, 2017 - National Geographic Explorer


Today was a day of true exploration, as the National Geographic Explorer navigated its way through Eternity Fjord, a place the ship nor staff had ever been. We took advantage of the numerous glaciers and mountainous landscapes to spend the afternoon hiking and kayaking under Greenland’s impressive peaks. Scrambling over rocks and sand, most hikers even made it to the foot of a nearby glacier, and took a moment to peer inside the brilliant blue crevasse and listen to its interior rushing streams. After dinner we took to the Zodiacs to maneuver through bergy bits and up to the face of a large tidewater glacier. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for our final day of exploration in Greenland!
