Unique, spectacular and dramatically beautiful, Greenland is dominated by a vast ice cap that covers 80% of the island. It is the largest non-continental island in the world, lying almost entirely within the Arctic Circle.
For landscape enthusiasts, Greenland will not disappoint. And then of course there are the incredible Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), Greenland providing one of the best vantage points to see the spectacular display of flashing across the Arctic sky.
Most popular: East Greenland for its Northern Lights, deep fjords (biggest fjord system in the world – Scoresbysund), biggest National park and stunning scenery. For cultural experiences is West and South Greenland perfect, as passengers will visit many Thule culture remains and can discover how Inuit’s live. Also not to forget is Disco Bay – where enormous glaciers calve into the bay (nearby hills offer views of the UNESCO rated ice fields).
Highlights: Viking history, Inuit Culture, Scoresbysund, Illulisat, Northern Lights, Musk Oxs
