Blue River, Greenland. A Paradise For Kayak Lovers

Petermann Glacier is the largest floating glacier in the Northern Hemisphere, located in Northwest Greenland. It connects the Greenland ice sheet to the Arctic Ocean. Petermann Glacier consists of approximately 500 square miles of ice in the middle and about 30-80 on the edge. In August 2010, a huge iceberg broke off from the floating part of Petermann Glacier reducing its volume by 10% and its area by about 25%. Another important concern in recent years has become the glacier’s melting.

In cooperation with the Greenpeace an expedition of three researchers spent three months in Greenland exploring Petermann Glacier ant its changes due to the global warming. They found a beautiful river created as a result of glacier’s melting. Evidently, about 80% of the Peterman glacier’s mass is melted water. This Petermann glacier’s melting river was named Blue River and it attracts a great number of visitors from all around the world with its beauty. But this beautiful river is also a symbol of a disappearing world and a kind of warning to us all.
