Day 16: The final day of kayaking

There is always a feeling of anti climax when such a superb trip comes to an end and it was somewhat fitting that we completed the 12 nautical mile paddle in perfect conditions.  Sea kayakers head towards Greenland to experience icebergs, wildlife and stunning scenery.  Today all three came together to produce a memorable end to our time kayaking in the Arctic.
Disko Bay is one of the finest sea kayaking destinations that I am aware of, I have enjoyed all 5 journeys that I have undertaken in the area, the only question which remains is when will we head north again to this beautiful area.
 Andy making progress south in perfect sea kayaking conditions.
Gordon picking his way through the ice to the south of Rodebay.
The bay was full of ice of different sizes and shapes. 
Nicky approaching the finish at Ilulissat.  The channel wasn’t always obvious.
Looking south from Ilulissat, the large bergs are coming out of the world famous Ice Fjord.
These slabs have seen the beginning and end of many of my sea kayaking adventures.  Today the weather allowed us to unpack and sort out our equipment in a fairly relaxed manner.  You don’t want trips like this to finish.

    Thank you Leonardo. It was a great trip away which we will remember for a long time. If you enjoy sea kayaking Greenland is the place to try and visit.
