Qooroq Ice Fjord

The Greenland Ice Cap produces 250 millions tons of ice every year when icebergs break off the glaciers. Close to Narsarsuaq the Qooroq Glacier fills up the fjord with beautiful icebergs. Turn off the engine and cruise between the icebergs to enjoy the silence only disturbed by the creaking ice. Light refreshments included.
