Why Greenland?

Did you know that in Greenland there is a city whose name, in its original language, means icebergs? This city is Ilulissaat, on the Disko Bay. Here, as well as in other parts of the country, you can sail through the icebergs and take amazing pictures under the midnight sun!

Even if it is said that it was an iceberg from the Disko Bay that sank the Titanic, it is perfectly safe to sail here!

Whether you come to Greenland in the summer or in the winter, you are going to have plenty of adventures: snowmobiling, dogsledding, or kayaking like a local, or ice climbing, hiking on the glacier, you name it!

The nature of Greenland is so untamed and wild that everything here can be an adventure, even just going outside from your hotel room during a storm!

The Inuit people have allowed themselves to marvel at this spectacle throughout the ages, and so the northern lights have also often challenged their own imaginations. A well-known legend relates the story, that when the northern lights dance in the night sky, it means that the dead are playing football with a walrus skull. The aurora is visible in Greenland from late August till the end of March.

Greenland is the home of beluga whales and narwhals, and for part of the year blue whales and orcas also traverse the waters. The summer is the prime whale watching season: up to 15 different species visit Greenland's waters but the most common are the fin, the humpback and the minke whales. These animals travel all the way from the Caribbean to feed in Greenland's fish-rich waters!

The history of the Inuits is both mysterious and fascinating alike. Scientists believe that they came from Mongolia more than 5,000 years ago.

The Inuits have been living in extreme natural conditions for centuries and have survived thanks to their incredible skills in hunting seals and whales. Come and meet these friendly people, who will be proud to show you who they are!

The Ice Sheet, consisting of multiple layers of compressed snow from more than 100,000 years, contains, within its ice, today's most valuable record of past climates!

You can admire it from the edge, you can fly over it and you can also land on it by helicopter: the Ice Sheet is quite simply stunning and will provide an unforgettable memory of a trip to Greenland!
