Passage to Greenland

Talks/Lectures

Event Description

The passage to Greenland was a trip Sue undertook in July 2010. It was her first expedition cruise - a real gamble as she doesn't travel well by boat. Greenland had been high on a list for a long time but this trip took in some other wonderful destinations en route, including the legendary island of St Kilda. North Rona, Britain's most remote bird sanctuary provided a challenging landing. The Faroe Islands and Iceland provided a chance to catch up with the football World Cup. But more interestingly Iceland provided the chance to try our snow mobile skills, tricky in a complete white out! And then on to Greenland - stunning scenery, lovely people, interesting history...
