After a snowy passage north, we woke at the mouth of Alpefjord in time to watch the fog dissipate and the snow-dusted mountains of Greenland National Park appear from within. We spent the early morning exploring the fjord system, and we encountered several groups of muskoxen from the ship. By the time breakfast had finished, the mountains were reflected in the glassy fjord, and we had arrived at a spectacular glacier. Naturally, we launched the Zodiacs for a two-hour cruise amongst the incredible scenery. I am not sure that anyone on board expected today to be so stunning. After a burger lunch, we went ashore for some hiking on the tundra and were lucky enough to encounter a group of muskoxen.
