Dog sledge expedition over glaciers and frozen fjords

23 April 2007 

Today we drive the dog sledges overland, crossing a glacial valley up to Bowdoin fjord, where the night is spent inside a refuge for hunters near Qaanaaq (Thule region) in northern Greenland.

A view over the Greenland's icecap (inland ice). Far away, the ice is so thick, that it buries entire mountains.

I climb a small iceberg, from where I enjoy beautiful views of surrounding mountains and glaciers.
Greenland is a geologist's paradise because the rocks are normally naked (no vegetation and no snow, especially on summer)..
