Greenland

Greenland is different. Probably most of all from what you expect it to be. A world of ice and snow six times the size of France but with only 300.000 people is only part of the story. Caught geographically between Europe and America, between modern times and traditional lifestyle also the Greenlandic landscape varies more than you might expect, every region having its own charm.

The South has the mildest climate, with sheltered fjords where fertile green hills provide ideal conditions for sheep farming. It's here where the Vikings first settled and where you will find many remnants of those times.

The North around the Disko Bay is known for its enormous icebergs, the Ilulissat Ice Fjord being UNESCO world heritage. In terms of tourism this is also the country's most developed region.

The East around Ammassalik is the roughest and wildest part of the country. Kulusuk, due to its proximity to Iceland, has become a popular destiny for short trips to Greenland.

Greenland has become “westernized” in many ways, for the good and the bad. Its infrastructure, though, is still far from being as developed as in other nordic countries. Boat and plane traffic depend heavily on weather conditions which are difficult to predict and change rapidly. Travelling to Greenland thus requires some open mindedness and flexibility. In return you'll be rewarded with an experience you'll never forget.
