Kulusuk Photos

Here's what Reykjavik looks like from the air.

It's Greenland! The other side of the plane looked even more interesting, unfortunately.

First look at the village: From the airport you hike about 3 km, round a mountain corner then see this.

Our cabin/ accommodation for the next few days. It's made out of strong, flexible wood and can stand storms, even though it doesn't look like it. There were already kids hanging around when we got there.


Notice the blue, blue sky in the background. It's like an inverted version of the colours of the sea in the Mediterranean or Caribbean.

Cute girl who just ran up to us and started playing with us.

Tobogganing, or 'sledging'.

The storm! Spot the houses!

The windows after the storm had really intricate designs.

The brown barrels are there to hold the house down and prevent it from blowing away!

Bingo night.

Rocks, with lots of striations.

At the edge of Kulusuk.

Our food group, who shopped and cooked together. With lots of Ritter Sport chocolate.

Once more, the cracked ice. They look like continents from up here.

I wish I could've taken more pictures of the mountains as we were coming in, and also the dogs. But such is chance.
