Things to do in Greenland…
Just getting to Greenland is an adventure holiday, but for those who want to step onto terra firma and out of their comfort zone, Greenland is Go-Pro gorgeous. Hike and wild camp along the elevated, exquisite landscapes of the east with views out across the Northeast Greenland National Park. Go on a veritable polar expedition, cross country skiing across the ice cap, dog sledding or trekking alongside the great Jakobshavn or Equi glaciers. And you can even go diving with polar experts alongside glaciers and icebergs. Or just chill and watch the Northern Lights.
Take a small ship cruise or sailing trip around Greenland’s fjords, its vast national park or across the Denmark Strait, to really get to grips with Greenland’s poetry in motion. Watch icebergs calving from their mother glaciers, look out for polar bears and whales, enjoy lectures and guidance from expert naturalists on board, and anchor up at small bays that are home to Inuit communities, or long abandoned islands.
The most sparsely populated island in the world in terms of humans, Greenland has prolific wildlife. Spotting polar bears on ice floes, walrus in the fjords, reindeer and massive musk oxen on the tundra, minke, beluga, humpback or even rare blue whales presenting in the deep, will make your day. And with days that go on all day in summer, you have twice as much time to see them.
