Travel to Greenland

Greenland was given an enticing name to make would-be conquerors head there instead of the warmer and more inviting Iceland. At least that’s how the story is told. In reality, Greenland is a warm, hospitable constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark. Geographically, it is part of North America, but it has been associated culturally with Europe for more than 1,000 years.

You’ll find Greenland to be a place where cultural exploration and an embrace of nature are intriguing experiences. The many glaciers that are available carve out cuts in the bedrock, inviting climbers to go on an adventure. Sailing is a way of life in Greenland, even though there are icebergs larger than the boat floating around.

Diving adventures are also possible around the ice. If you visit during the time of year when the sun is always shining, you must just encounter some whales while you explore underwater. Then come back on shore, ignore the permafrost, and enjoy some of the flavors that come straight from the sea.

Coastal ferries are always a possibility for those who want to see the ever-changing coastline of Greenland. If you wish to explore the interior, cross-country skiing is an option. In the backcountry, skiing is the primary mode of transportation to get around town.

From reindeer to sea eagles to polar bears, Greenland is an arctic paradise that is calling you to explore. Broaden your horizons with these stunning, rugged vistas and you will find this to be a land which provides an exciting mix of experiences to enjoy.
