Don’t let the name fool you – this is a landscape of extremes, wild, glaciated and beautiful
Greenland is the world’s largest island, and home to a staggering coast-to-coast ice sheet that covers 80% of its land and reaches depths of three kilometres. For many people, Greenland trips are the ultimate in Polar adventure holidays. Towns cling to its rocky coastline, pristine fjords eat into the landscape and vast glaciers slowly carve their way through the mountains.
In the short summer season, the Midnight Sun brings 24-hour daylight to the island, and it’s a wonderful place to spot wildlife such as Polar bears, Humpback whales, Musk oxen, walruses, reindeer and Sea eagles. And, due to the country’s isolation and northerly position, Greenland tours offer excellent chances of seeing the Northern Lights during the winter months.
