Gros Morne National Park, NFL
“Soaring fjords and moody mountains tower above a diverse panorama of beaches and bogs, forests and barren cliffs. Shaped by colliding continents and grinding glaciers, Gros Morne’s ancient landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander coastal pathways and beachcomb among sea stacks. Cruise the dramatic, sheer-walled gorge of Western Brook Pond. Spot moose and caribou. Hike to alpine highlands where Arctic hare and ptarmigan thrive on tundra, and explore the colourful culture of nearby seaside villages.”

FJORDS IN GREENLAND
Among climbers, Tasermiut is famed for its granite rock cliffs, which draw adrenaline-seeking climbers from all over the world, but for people who like moving in a horizontal direction rather than vertical, the Tasermiut Fjord is probably the most beautiful of its kind in Greenland.
The fjord stretches 70 kilometres not far from the southernmost town of Greenland, Nanortalik, and ends where the massive Ice Sheet of the world’s biggest island begins. The fjord is an ideal place to trek, kayak, go river fishing, or sail in a small boat or with one of the rarely visiting cruise ships that go there.
Landscape photographer Alex Nail went there last year, and see here how he nailed a two-week experience of visiting the place.
