You will never feel as close to nature as you will when you zip around sea on small, fast and agile Polarcirkel Boats or paddling via kayak. Venture closer to gigantic icebergs, and feel the temperature cool a few notches when you are nearby.
Who knows, a whale might also pop by to say hello – and sometimes the whales will swim so close that you will be able to hear them spouting!
Sleeping outside on deck under the midnight sun is also another way you can experience nature in Greenland. Some cruise ships like Hurtigruten’s MS Fram offer this service complete with hot chocolate and thick down sleeping bags. Further on in the sailing season from late August, it might even be possible to view the dancing northern lights.
You can also try hiking or trail running while on land. Greenland offers many stunning land-based hikes of various levels. Or for a real treat, try a flightseeing or helicopter tour and see the land, villages and nature by air. In Ilulissat, you even have the chance to land near a glacier and walk on ice!
