Greenland and Scoresby Sound! With @nickbondarev / Greenland, meaning “Land of the People”, is curiously one of the less populated countries in the world (in terms of inhabitants per sq. miles) counting with a population of roughly 57,000. The 25% of its inhabitants live in the capital, Nuuk.
The first humans are thought to have arrived in Greenland around 2500 BC. However, it wasn’t until the 10th century when Europeans landed on this vast and wild territory. When Icelandic Vikings settled on its southwestern coast, they had to deal with extreme Arctic conditions. Although, if you think about it, they were pretty much used to such weather patterns.
This beautiful photo shows a tiny part of one of the largest and longest fjord systems in the world. Located on the Eastern Coast of Greenland, Scoresby Sund is known to be an iceberg garden!
Generally speaking, an ice cap covers about 80% of Greenland, restricting human activity largely to the coasts. Nevertheless, as the ice retreats rapidly due to warming trends, sculpted ice gardens become now part of the landscape as well.
Did you known that "Igloo" is a Greenlandic word? Special greetings to @nickbondarev for sharing this marvelous picture with us! Nick creates stories about the interaction of man and wild nature, as well as the history of cultures that are threatened with extinction. He recently shared his story through his first book @northern_winds_book, just in case you would like to know more about him! 🙂 If you also want to be featured you can tagg us or use #nomadict in your posts!
Yay, summer and 'life in shorts for 5+ months this year' is back at least for one more day, and by the way, Galya and I will be introducing Lasse Lau's Danish - Greenlandic documentary film Lykkelænder in Moscow, featuring my cousin Vivi Nielsen among others, if you are 'here' please come : http://www.coolconnections.ru/en/festivals/danish-wave/2018/moscow :-) @ageofhappiness@galyamorrell_coldartist@laulasse#greenland#arctic
Last month I spent a week off the grid with @boreaadventures amidst the remote landscape of Hornstrandir, a nature reserve at the Northern tip of the Westfjords. The Arctic Fox is protected within the reserve, allowing them to live free along the coastline without the unfortunate threat of hunting seen in other parts of the country. With tourism in the area increasing rapidly each season, it’s super important to consult the Environmental agency of Iceland (Umhverfisstofnun) in advanced of your trip if you’d like to document the foxes that live out the there.
♡ one of the best afternoons, ever!
The temperature gets warm enough in the afternoon to remove my jacket, sometimes even a bit too warm when we’re hanging out right under the sun. Here comes my favorite part, breeze coming in from the icefjord feels SOOO good. Icy but not too cold when combined with the Sun - you can really get tan here, esp from all the reflections hahaha 😎
The only road in Canada to cross the Arctic Circle, the Dempster Highway is equal parts rugged and beautiful.
With limited provisions available and over 700km of dirt road once you leave the pavement, it's not for the faint of heart. Who would you want to roadtrip here with?
