Hare Fjord

Hare Fjord, Scoresby Sund, Greenland. Day 47. 14th August 2013.

From Red Island we moved up Rødefjord and around the corner to Harefjord.  Perhaps there was a prehistoric Krishna community here but I think it a touch more likely the fjord was named after the Arctic Hare.

There are many places on the eastern Greenland coast with the remains of ancient Inuit habitations.  Here Carol, our resident archaeologist, explains such a site.

This I think is the view from the same place but looking in a different direction.

Many of us went for a walk and visited the ice river that you can see above.

Up close, of course, it’s a lot bigger.

Later that evening, the weather was closing in and we were sailing on, along Øfjord.  All following images are from the ship.
