Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach Thyrms Glacier

Thryms Glacier lies at the end of the spectacular Skjoldungen Fjord, sandwiched between the sheer scale of this mass of ice is truly breathtaking. On the sides of the fjord, tiny pink and white flowers gather the weak Arctic sunlight, pockets of vegetation soaking up glistening meltwater trickling down from the snow and small glaciers on the mountainsides.

Thryms Glacier is one of the most active glaciers in Greenland that can be approached safely; the thundering booms of ice falling as the glacier calves can be heard miles away, and witnessing the masses of ice tumbling into the ocean has to be experienced to be believed. The icebergs formed by these calvings can be vast, even with 90% of their mass submerged in the milky glacial water. It is hard to believe that this glacier was even bigger until around 2004, when a lake held back in the fjord by the glacier escaped, forming a gap in the ice on the northern side. Small pieces of ice drift in and out of the new inlet with the tides. The sheltered water near the glacier is a hotspot for wildlife; a variety of gulls and elegant Arctic Terns compete for morsels in the water churned up by the shifting ice, and seals patrol the shorelines, hunting in the fronds of seaweed, often approaching boats to satisfy their endearing curiosity.
