Today we explored Kajser Franz Joseph Fjord, one of the largest fjord systems in the Northeast Greenland National Park. We began the day at Blomsterbugten, hiking through a tight mountain pass to an overlook of an alpine lake. Along the way, we encountered a few Arctic hares, some muskoxen, and some very fresh polar bear tracks! Other guests opted out of the hike and took the opportunity to try out our kayaks instead.

In the late afternoon, National Geographic Endurance settled in front of the Westerhausen Glacier, and Zodiacs were launched for a chance to view the glacier up close and personal. We spotted a number of very friendly ring seals from the Zodiacs.

After a special Filipino dinner, everyone gathered in the Ice Lounge for the world famous “Shackletunes” crew show!
