From the anchorage in Kangerdlugssuaq we set course for Nualik ourselves. On the way we first tried to land on the island of Aputiteq where a weather station was operated until recently. Much swell together with thick and broken ice meant that we had to turn away and continue south. A big patch of thick sea-ice also prevented us from reaching Nualik from the north. So off we went again and ran off around the ice and decided to aim for Kialeq instead. Very little ice was on the route but again a narrow band of very concentrated ice stopped us from reaching this anchorage. Same story repeated itself for another three potential anchorages along the coast!
But this “forbidden coast” has it´s soft sides as well… and eventually we dropped anchor by the white sandy beach in the peaceful Nigertuluk fjord. Here we spent time kayaking, hiking and paddleboarding as well as of course fishing for Arctic Char. Great feasts were cooked up in Aurora´s galley with this lovely fish fried, smoked, baked whole, made into sushi, sashimi, ceviche etc etc… fantastic meals with great people.
