Climatologist Expert Jason Box Joins Hurtigruten's "In the Wake of the Vikings"
Climatologist Expert Jason Box Joins Hurtigruten's In the Wake of the Vikings, a 14-day odyssey aboard the deluxe 318-passenger MS Fram that follows in the wake of the ancient Norsemen from Iceland to Greenland and then onto Canada’s Labrador and Newfoundland.
Having made 18 expeditions to Greenland's ice sheet since 1994, Jason Box is considered an authority on the relationship between Greenland glaciers and climatic change and was a contributing author to Climate Change 2007, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in the same year. His insight is impactful and will leave Hurtigruten's guests with a clearer understanding of one of the world's most discussed climate issues - global warming.
Other onboard experts from numerous disciplines, including geology, marine life, environment, history and culture, will also be on hand and will join the landings and shore excursions where passengers have the chance to get close to the culture, wildlife and communities of Greenland’s most isolated areas.
