Coping with and leaving behind this final and last dangerous challenge of my hike I happily reached the camp ground expecting at least some tents and tourists there. However, there were no other hikers, no other tents except the ones of Nordwind Reisen. Nordwind Reisen offers guided excursions particularly for German tourists. Nordwind Reisen customers sleep in 2-3 person tents on camp grounds in Qeqertarssuaq and Ilulissat. For preparing and taking meals Nordwind Reisen sets up a big white group tents on both of these camp grounds. This was the only tent at that time.
I celebrated my arrival on the camp ground of Qeqertarssuaq with an opulent meal of a double portion spaghetti with a special sauce made of tomatoes and corned beef. This was only topped by my first and only coffee of my total hike.
The next day was already the day of departure. But prior to departure I still had about 15 hours to visit Qeqertarssuaq. It was Sunday and the weather was just beautiful. The sky was blue and the sun was shining when I left the camp ground for visiting Qeqertarssuaq. I passed the football ground of Qeqertarssuaq which is unlike the one of Kangerluk merely a rectangular area of dusty greyish gravel delimited by its sidelines. This, however, did not render by any means Qeqertarssuaq’s football team’s success as Greenland’s football champion of 2010.
Some 300 meters further on I came along the famous Danish Arctic Research Station.
