Greenland is the place to go to explore the Arctic and enjoy the Northern Lights.
The Arctic Circle Trail extends up to 200 kilometers from the edge of the ice cap to the angling town of Sisimiut
, on Greenland’s the West coast. From June to September it is usually free of snow and offers a truly spectacular hike. As for the Aurora Borealis
, it is enjoyable all across the island from December through February, when the nights are clear and the biggest light show on earth gives its very best.
You can have a bath in Greenland!
Greenland is notoriously scattered with hot springs, yet not all of them are warm enough to bathe in. The uninhabited island of Uunartoq, in South Greenland, is home to three naturally heated springs which run together to a small stone-dammed pool where you can lie in the hot water
and enjoy the view on the surrounding mountain peaks and drifting icebergs.
Greenland has a very modern and cosmopolitan capital
Despite being one of the smallest capital cities in the world, Nuuk is on its way to becoming the
Nordic culture capital, as well as the northernmost. Inhabited by Greenlander and Danes, this amazing city has managed to create an amazing cultural mixture
that ranges from the of traditional local culture to the most diverse contemporary creative expressions such as street art, futuristic architecture, new Nordic cuisine and craft beer.
