Nordic Travel Specialist, Greg, shares a collection of stunning images taken on his hiking trip in Greenland

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

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.
