"Balfor's Greenland Page" Thule by balfor

Thule Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 42 photos

welcome to Thule!

This amazing sight is looking toward Mt. Dundas. The photo was taken about 2 am (0200) and as you can see, the sun is still shining brightly. (Or it would have been had it not been so overcast! <grin>)

You KNOW that something has gone amiss with your rational thinking when you volunteer to go to a place that is too far north to see the Northern Lights!

Finally got my scanner working and my pictures found, so I'll be adding a bit to this page as time goes on!

Stream in a valley

This stream was formed from the melting snow. This picture was taken in the early summer about 10 pm (2200).

    Hi, CHris! It's interesting about the sandwiches and the Club itself! I enjoyed the views of the countryside...

    Chris, fabulous page with brilliant photos of a place which I only know as a brand for luggage racks for cars. I am looking forward to meeting you again in Krakow. :-)

    What a treat! I was stationed at Thule in 1955-56 time frame. No running water, 3 min showers, marine toilets, etc Thanks for bringing this experience to others.

    Great tips on a fascinating place! If I ever make it to Greenland I will certainly take someone with me whom I can outrun! ; )

    Having my own personal stalker makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. My life would be so incomplete with out one. Would you like on also, I'm sure I could arrange for it.
