a field guide to the planet - by Damon Ramsey
I visited this area twice in 2019.
This glacier is calving and creating more icebergs than any other in the northern hemisphere. It was thought to give birth to the glacier that sunk the Titanic.
These days, it is not possible to see the glacier from the town or a boat cruise, as the ice clogs up the fjord before the front. A walk from the town allows view of this bay.
It is possible to see the glacier with a flight, which may include landing near the glacier.
As one of the more protected areas inside Greenland (hunting of seal and whales is still allowed in Greenland), you are more likely to see Fin Whales and Humpback Whales here than in other parts of the west coast or south coast.
Thinking of travelling again after everything settles down? The first expedition I am booked to work on after the virus is Micronesia, New Guinea & Indonesia in 2021 with Silversea. Meanwhile I am giving a lecture on the Sunshine Coast (Australia) on the "Sounds of suburban south-east Queensland".
