GREENLAND

The photos in this gallery are made in the Scoresby Sund fjord on the east part of Greenland. The Scoresby Sund is the largest fjord system in the world with only one permanent settlement named Ittoqqortoormiit, with a population of only about 450 people, which live in extreme conditions most of the year. The fjord is only accessible a few months a year because of the amount of sea ice. However, due to the speed at which the ice is now melting due to global warming, the period that the fjord is accessible will become longer and longer. The beauty of this fjord, which you can only discover by ship, is that there are few to no human influences and therefore mainly consists of untouched landscapes. The combination of the rugged mountains and the enormous glaciers and icebergs makes this one of my favorite destinations ever. Unfortunately, the signs of climate change are clearly visible here, which gives mixed feelings when you are sailing here.
