We will find warm springs in Unartoq. A visit at Isortoq will show us the locals still living the traditional life. And we go to Tasiilaq where Europeans first met the Eskimo's at the end of the 19th century. The 3 mast-schooner 'Rembrandt van Rijn' is well suited for expedition cruising among the fjords of Greenland..
