Greenland, Ilulissat – a walk on the ice fjord and a clear early morning and evening for viewing – last day

Well I thought Greenland couldn’t get any better but the last day in Ilulissat which involved perfect weather the night before and in the very early morning as we cruised past magnificent icebergs proved me wrong.

On arrival in port we tendered off the ship and I walked the boardwalk which took me to the icefjord – bizarrely, considering we were now in the arctic Circle it was probably the warmest it had been – and the walk was certainly worthwhile.

Then as we sailed away from Greenland for the last time we had spectacular light and icebergs – including one that was calving (breaking off in parts”). Wow.

I’m going to miss this place but also excited to be heading for northern Canada – hope to see some wildlife there.
