South Greenland

Rough mountains, hot springs, and lush meadows can all be found in South Greenland. Summers are colorful and offer a large variety of hiking adventures. Additionally, there are numerous sheep farms where you can go horseback riding, and the icebergs are old, which means they are often blue and white. Also, there are numerous Norse/Viking sites, and six historical sites make up the Kujataa UNESCO World Heritage Site.

North Greenland

The midnight sun, polar night, dog sleds, northern lights, icebergs, and Inuit culture are all synonymous with North Greenland. You can enjoy a wide range of Arctic activities here, including some of the world’s fastest-moving glaciers and enormous icebergs. The region is enormous. Kayaking in the huge Uummannaq Fjord or visiting the hunters of Qaanaaq will change how you see life.

East Greenland

East Greenland is a haven for explorers and adventurous travelers alike. Like all of Greenland, it has been influenced by the European lifestyle, yet it retains its Inuit roots very much. The East Greenlanders have a very specific and beautiful dialect, which other Greenlanders do not always understand. There are very exciting adventures in Tasiilaq, Kulusuk, and Ittoqqortoormiit.

The National Park

Greenland is home to the world’s largest national park. It is probably also the least visited national park in the world, not only because of its location at the end of the world but also because there is limited access to the area. The famous dogsledding Sirius Patrol patrols the area.
