Scoresbysund, Greenland
Scoresby Sund is the largest fjord system in the world. The winding extension of the Greenland Sea stretches 110 km or 68 miles into the eastern coast of Greenland. The tree-like structure of the Sund then branches into a massive system of fjords, Along this route, majestic peaks will greet you, rising thousands of meters from the sea. Taking in the horizon you will see endless rows of icebergs, carved into incredible geometric shapes by the wind and water. You will be surrounded by massive glaciers in all directions.Scoresby Sund is an adventure of enormous proportions, everywhere your eyes take you. English explorer William Scoresby felt first sailed into the Sund to chart its magnificent structure in 1822. A region this rich in natural beauty is not without abundant and equally fascinating wildlife. Sailing past rolling hills, you can spot herds of musk oxen grazing. Other animals include the Arctic fox, the Arctic hare and lemming.
