5. Arctic culture
With less ice-free land and more inhospitable terrain, East Greenland is much more sparsely populated than other areas of the country, but some indigenous Inuit peoples still make their home here, living in smatterings of picturesque, multi-hued buildings that make up one of the quintessential images of Greenland. There are some places here where dogs outnumber people, dog sledding being the most efficient way to travel when snows carpet the ground. Ittoqqortoormiit is the most isolated town in Greenland where hunting and sea fishing are the only way the community can survive. The small town of Tasiilaq is home to just 2,000 people who possibly live in one of the most beautiful places in the world on the edge of Kong Oscars harbour, surrounded by mountains and fjords, its hinterland offers the opportunity to hike through flower fields.
