East Greenland Trip Report: Sep 1-10, 2018 aboard the Ocean Nova

If I had one word to describe my recent voyage to East Greenland, it would be EPIC!

After a week exploring the fjords of East Greenland, here are my reasons (and photos to back them up!) why this destination is epic and a must for any Polar traveler.

Incredible Scenery & Photo Ops: East Greenland is remote, rugged and absolutely stunning.

Rocks! Because geology actually is cool, especially in East Greenland which is home to some of the oldest rocks on the planet.

Silence. I know it sounds weird (and hard to show in photos), but in our bustling world more than a few passengers onboard agreed that one of the highlights was to experience the silence & re-connecting with nature.
