Fjord Holiday

After an intense summer and a very short autumn, winter is here!

Since I´ve neglected this blog for a while, I still have some summer-pictures to share. So, let`s go back in time…

In the last 2 weeks of august, my husband and I spend 10 days in the Scoresby Sund, the largest fjord system in the world. I had been looking forward to those days for a long time.

After short breaks at Danmark Ø and Ankervig/Hjørnedal we pitched our tent at Harefjord, and ended up staying there for 5 days.

We took a bath in a lake, not far away from a flock of musk ox.

This was a perfect summer day.

We collected some qiviut – musk ox wool.

These incredible soft fibers will some day end up in a hat or scarf!

After a few warm and sunny days, it rained for an entire day.

Next morning, the mountaintops were covered by snow, and the air was a bit chilly. Clearly, summer was coming to an end … and we decided to move on.

  1. When I read “…Scoresby Sund, the largest fjord system in the world.”, my first thought was “Really?” I keep forgetting how huge Greenland is. Thanks for sharing so many photos on this blog beyond the typical travelogue variety.

  2. Thanks, Dan, – and yes, the Scoresby Sund is the largest and longest fjord system in the world. Not many people know that. It is a huge area. Although I`ve been in the fjord many times by know, there`s still a lot I haven`t seen yet!
