Preperations for Greenland Voyage underway
Preperations for Hildur’s trip to Greenland have begun and everything is on schedule according to the crew. This will be the first time North Sailing will be doing this trip with passengers but last year a crew from North Sailing did a similar trip to check on conditions and prepare for the trip they are going on now. This trip will last seven days and there will be two, from the end of August until the beginning of September and there will be around 10 passengers on each trip. They will be sailing around Scoresby Sund taking in the breathtaking sights and visiting interesting places.
Following are some pictures of Hildur and the preparations.
