We expected to spend our day in Ilulissat, but today we should learn that ice is not always nice. Especially when you have too much ice, ice is not nice. Ice can turn your itinerary completely upside down. So we had to accept that we could not reach Ilulissat as the ice belt around the city has been too dense. At the first moment it was not so easy for us, but we all came to Greenland to see and to learn about the Greenlandic nature and now we had to recognize that the nature is always the winner. The only thing we can do is to accept it.
Of course our Expedition Leader had prepared a plan B. And so we made our way to Qasigiannguit that is also called the Perl of the Disko Bay.
We explored the city guided by our lecturer staff. We visited the museum area and we have been very astonished that such a small city has such an amazing museum.
Later on the Qasigiannguit Choir gave us an unforgettable concert in the nice church of the city.
After dinner we enjoyed the very famous MV FRAM crew show. A big thank you to the crew that you gave us such a wonderful evening!
MV FRAM is the most modern expedition cruise vessel belonging to the Hurtigrutenfleet, roaming the polar waters and taking people to remote places where only few people go. In order to give you the chance to travel with us, even if only on your screen, we created this blog. Here you can see what we have seen and read what we have done. And - maybe - you will be onboard with us one day.
The expedition team consists of lecturers from various fields and backgrounds: ornithologists, mammalogists, historians, and geologists, ready to tackle all your questions. Together with the crew onboard we make your time on board REALLY worthwhile!
