On Board M/V Hondius
September 15-25, 2019
We have the wonderful opportunity in
September 2019 to explore the longest fjord in the
world -- Scoresbysund -- in East Greenland on
board the splendid new vessel, M/V Hondius.
Our long time colleague Dr. Ko De Korte did his
Ph.D. research in Scoresbysund, and has been
developing expeditions to remote regions in the
Arctic ever since.
Ko has spoken with us many times about the
magnificence of Scoresbysund, the Inuit people
who live there, and spectacle of the mountains,
glaciers, icebergs, and wildlife that can be
found there. He cherishes the people of East
Greenland, and has published a book with
images from the 1970’s of the Inuit people -
I was recently in West Greenland and can only
say, “Wow.” Greenland is extraordinary! I very
much hope you can take advantage of this
opportunity and join us to explore Scoresbysund
from September 15 - 25, 2019!
The tundra will be in fall color and some
evenings the Aurora Borealis may dazzle us with
green waves dancing across the night sky!
I do hope you will join us!
