The colourful houses that make up Kulusuk. A boat trip out on the Akaasaartik fjord gave us the chance to get closer to the many icebergs floating in the glass like water

The Apusiaajik or ‘little glacier’ was only a short boat ride away from Hotel Kulusuk

We were incredibly lucky with the weather all week, with blue skies gracing us nearly every day

The hike to the old radar station at the top of Isikajia was one of the more demanding of the trip but definitely worth it for the views.
