Blomster Bugt, Greenland

The broad valley of Blomster Bugt (Flower Bay) gets its name from the colorful flowering plants on its shores. The landing attracts us with fantastical geologic formations, a lake with great northern divers raising their young, a quick-footed population of white arctic hares and frequent groups of grazing musk oxen. There is an early 20th-century hunters’ hut to poke around, and the tundra meadows guarantee some of East Greenland’s most memorable views.
