Things to do in Greenland!
Dave and Deb of The Planet D visit Greenland and the Arctic Circle with Quark Expeditions. See what it’s like to go on a polar expedition in this “Day in the life Video”
Welcome to Greenland.
We’re here on the Greenland Explorer withQuark Expeditions and we’re joined by the Expedition Leader, Alex McNeil.
Can you just run us through what maybe 24
hours might be like on the ship here?
An average day for me would probably be waking
up around 5 O’clock, and heading to the bridge
looking at local conditions, ice weather,
current, assessing our progress, towards our
proposed destination and looking for any opportunities
along the way.
And the essentially we have a time where we
plan to wake the passengers up.
Usually anywhere from 5:30 to 7:30 at the
latest, sometimes we give people a little
bit of a sleep in.
Then we go out on a morning excursion for
sure, for example, this morning we had a zodiac
cruise and a landing, the tide just got out,
we had a really good extended hike, and we’re
going to assess opportunities.
Ready for a great day on the water!
Ship cruise the entirety of the Fjord, it’s
about 60 miles
Picturesque jagged peaks, glaciers, that will
be great regardless, and who knows what opportunities
will present for zodiac cruises and other
I forgot one thing, we’re gonna get you to
jump in the water at some point too.
Because we’re back in the ice, and we’ve got
a little bit colder water, so it’s time for
a polar plunge.
I like that, it’s a little bit colder water.
We want it to be as cold as possible so people
can get the true feeling of the Polar Plunge.
If you go on a Quark Expedition Ship, make
sure to do the polar plunge, whether it’s
in the Antarctic or it’s up here in Greenland,
And Vodka is your reward, mine’s empty.
Another fantastic day here in Greenland, as
you can see, the landscape never stops changing.
Another UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Wow, behind me is Jacobs Harbour, and this
is a harbour filled with ice bergs that come
from Jacobs Glacier.
And as we were told, all of these ice bergs,
eventually make it out of here and travel
all the way to Canada.
Walking in the Tundra in the Arctic.
It’s the spirit of adventure,
You never know what’s going to happen and
that’s what great about the Arctic.
It’s just adventure around every corner.
Cheers from Greenland.
So you know if you need any motivation to
go to the Arctic, well you got it now.
Come to Greenland, we’ll see you there.
