Greenland

A remote and amazing icy wonderland

Greenland is beautiful, from its glaciers to its green meadows. Its unlike any landscape you're likely to have seen before. In a place without a real road system, one of the best ways to get to know the island is by ship, which can bring you to places you never imagined you'd see and acquaint you with people you had no idea you'd ever meet. In Greenland, Inuit culture is thriving and adapting to the changing times, and Greenlanders are a famously friendly people.
