Greenland Part 1

4 May 2007

3 days of waiting in Akureyri in N. Iceland for bad weather in Greenland to clear... Coffee and a cake costs £10, large beer is about £7, this isn't a cheap stay!...

Inbound, just after the coast:

Arrival at Gunnbjorn Fjeld base camp, 2200m, and just short of 69 degrees North:

Base Camp:
