Knud Rasmussen 05


As we sped away from the glacier, our seal hunterís wife and son were taking a nap on the transom at the back of the boat. There is also another glacier called Knud Rasmussen in north-west Greenland, but that one is about half the size of this one. The glaciers are named after a Danish-Inuit explorer who between 1912 and 1931 undertook six expeditions across Greenland gathering ethnographic data and mapping parts of the island which had not been previously explored.
