The largest island on earth, Greenland is full of beautiful, isolated and mysterious landscapes. Tranquil, silver lakes are lined with colorful wooden houses and green pastures, against a backdrop of the dark and light of snow lined mountains. Small glaciers sculpted by wind and water lie scattered on the lakes and rivers, where local fishermen cast their lines. 

Relax in thermal spas where the water is bath warm even when surrounded by ice. Hike, ski or take a dog sled through the wide-open and unfenced places that are rare in today’s world. Kayak or rock climb through the mountainous landscape. 


Travel to the Arctic Circle to view the midnight sun in summer and the Northern Lights in the winter, or watch a calving glacier in the summer. Visit Viking ruins outside the capital Nuuk, which also has the second largest fjord system on earth.
