The adventure takes you east of Tasiilaq. When sailing this route you will experience the beautiful landscape of East Greenland with all its majestic peaky mountains and deep fjords with drifting icebergs.

Be on the look out for humpback whales playing hide and seek between the waves. When sailing in these waters there might be a chance to spot some of the beautiful sea mammals like humpback whales and seals playing in the water as well as Polarbears. The mission of the day, is to reacg Bluie East Two (BE-2) airbase. In the middle of the beautiful valley between tall, grey mountains a huge pile of red, rusted fuel drums appear, as a scar on the natural surface. These are the remains of the abandoned US airbase Bluie East Two from second World War. The airbase was operational from 1942 to 1947. The airbase has been abandoned since the 1950's and today the remains are still there; rusted vehicles, fuel drums and ruins of houses.

This is one of the radar stations that the US military set up during Second World War and the radar station itself closed down in the early 1990's.

Coming to this place is like entering a ghost town and it will also give you a feeling of how fragile the Greenlandic nature actually is and how long time the degradation of metal takes.
