Excursions from Tasiilaq among whales and glaciers

August 24th, 25th e 26th, 2009

The trip itinerary is altered because rain and heavy sea is coming. So, the planned trek on the icecap, ending into Isortoq village, is canceled for safety reason and the group is transported back to Tasiilaq. From Tasiilaq, shorter excursions are offered while waiting for better weather.

Greenpeace ship
We see a Greenpeace ship coming to Tasiilaq to get fuel. Officially, the ship seems to be here to do studies on dying glaciers, although it has been reported that they did some disturbing action towards Inuit hunters.
