First week at Zackenberg

Our arrival to Greenland was quite spectacular: clear skies during the flight from Akureyri offered stunning views of glaciers and floating icebergs. After a quick refueling at Constable Point and another brief stop at Daneborg (the marine science station connected to Zackenberg Research Station), we arrived safe and sound at our home for the coming […]
