Greenland is a country with adventurous possibilities, endless fjords, huge glaciers, high mountains and beautiful sights along a coastline with very few cities and inhabitants.
It might seem difficult to decide where to go in Greenland, and what time of the year to travel. So the simple answer is, to make your own:
Greenland Bucket List
Midnight sun and whales are only seen during summer. Dog sledding is only possible during winter. Icebergs can be seen all year around, but not in the dark, except if there is Northern Lights… so, if you want to visit Greenland, you have to create your own Greenland bucket list, and then, as step two, prioritize what you want to see the most, second most, and so on.
To help you choose, we have made a list of Top 5 winter attractions in Greenland, and a list of Top 5 summer attractions in Greenland. See them both below. Furthermore we describe some of the things each season has to offer below in this article.
Though, let us be honest, while Greenland is the size of several US states, or Western Europe combined, the corners of Greenland are quite different. The differences is seen both in population, development and nature, which widely vary from hunters in the North to sheep farmers in the South, and from high mountains that peaks in the East, to cliffs rounded by the former glacier’s retreat during the last ice age, in the West.
