It was an early departure this morning to catch the charter to start our adventure. We arrived in the early afternoon in Kangerlussuaq located on the west coast of Greenland. Kangerlussuaq is a small community which was formerly a major American military base from 1941 to 1992. We enjoyed our ride from the airport to the “Rowing Club” where we were served authentic Greenland fare and then set out to the harbor to board ‘Le Boreal.’ When we arrived at the ship, we were welcomed with a glass of champagne and a warm greeting by the captain and crew. We were escorted to our cabins and settled in for the evening as ‘Le Boreal’ left Kangerlussuaq for the cruise through the Northwest Passage.
