North Greenland is the land of the midnight sun and dog sledding. A cornucopia of arctic experiences with giant icebergs and the Ilulissat Icefjord, honoured with a place on the esteemed list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
From the Disko Bay area in central West Greenland to the polar extremes of the far north, the scale of Destination North Greenland is hard to fathom. Along a coastline stretching thousands of miles lie small communities based on hunting and fishing, in a land ruled by the polar night in winter and the summer’s midnight sun.
The Ilulissat Icefjord and the Disko Bay are known for diversity in landscapes and wildlife, high quality hotels, and culinary experiences. From the strange volcanic rocks along the hiking trails on Qeqertarsuaq and the island’s summer dog sledding on the Lyngmark Glacier, to the many whales and birds in the bay, to the constant flow of massive icebergs from one of the world’s fastest flowing glaciers, this is a concentrated slice of Greenland.
Further north, the Uummannaq archipelago and kayaking adventures in Upernavik open up a remote world of experiences culminating at the top of Greenland in the small town of Qaanaaq, where subsistence hunting is a way of life.
