If you can only do five things in Greenland, make it the Big Arctic Five! They are tried and true – every single memorable experience I have had in Greenland includes some combination of these essential elements!
Meet Pioneering People – At the center of everything are the people who live in and love this country!
Experience Ice and Snow with all 5 senses – Be it glaciers, floating icebergs, or the massive Ice Sheet, you are never far from this element!
Traverse landscape via Dogsled – Thanks to the Greenlandic Dog, who lives to run/pull a sled, you can get to places you could never dream of reaching on foot.
Gaze at the Northern Lights – Sunlight may be fleeting in wintertime, but the sky is far from dark. Watch the sky come alive as a vision of green and purple!
Go Whale-watching – Spot these majestic summer visitors during a sailing tour or maybe even from the comfort of your own balcony!
