Sailing into the fjord is like a tour back in time. The mountains are some of the worlds oldest, with all kind of shapes from great pyramids to steep peaks. The distances are amazing, as we for a long time could see the bottom of the fjord with the glacier not longer reaching the water due to climate change. Above we could even se the Greenlandic Icecap. We took a tonnes of pictures and will never forget this tour. Should be on everyone's bucket list!!!
