On Board M/V Hondius
September 9-20, 2021
We have the wonderful opportunity in
September 2021 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 Greenland, and has spoken with
us many times about the magnificence of
Greenland, 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 - his friends!
In Fall 2018 I was in West Greenland and can only
say Greenland is extraordinary! I very much hope
you can take advantage of this opportunity and join
us to explore Greenland in Fall 2020!
Our program will begin with three days in
Iceland, an altogether remarkable country. 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!
