Arctic Highlights: Blomsterbugten

Today we got a glimpse of the greenland we expect. Giant Icebergs floating in the fjord welcome us with their magnificance. But they were dwarfed by the massive cliffs which echoed times of prehistoric formations with distinct mineral lines to create miles of spectacular rock formations. The highlight, however, was the welcome we received from a polar bear. It was quite unexpected but very much welcome.

The polar bear quietly smelled the air and gazed upon us as we cruised in the zodiacs to get a closer look. It was clear who rules the mighty cliffs here. We have had three polar bear sightings before but only this one was as close as we could be. The morning was rounded off by some more musk ox sightings, once again, high up on the cliffs.

It felt that finally we had arrived to Greenland.
