You might not have heard of Greenland, a vast piece of land with only a few people living it in. Located way too far between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, Greenland might not be in your bucket list. However, a visit to this unique place will surely give you a sense of relaxation and fulfillment. Getting there is not easy, but once you’ve made it, you will surely love it. Here are some of the things to do in Greenland.
Dog sledding is a fun activity for both the locals and tourists. It is also a form of transportation in the country. They don’t have a lot of roads. Therefore, they travel from place to place using ice. Snowmobile and dog sled are essential parts of their lives. Once you take a ride, you will experience the Inuit culture and the adventure that they experience on a daily basis. The moment you reach places that are even more isolated, you will feel like you are the only one left in the world.
The Northern Lights
Greenland is one of the best places to view the northern lights or the Aurora Borealis. You have to view it from the outdoors in the middle of the night. Expect the temperature to be really low. Therefore, you need to wear the warmest clothes you have with you. In Greenland, the best colors of the northern lights can be viewed. From red to green and blue sky, the changes in colors will surely mesmerize you.
Ice and snow experience
Play with the snow outdoors or just take wonderful photos. The fluffy white stuff in Greenland is totally unique as it covers almost every surface. The ice and snow are already a huge part of the local people’s lives. To make it even more exciting, head to the Ilulissat Icefjord. There are days when you can see an iceberg being pushed off the sheet by the great glacier. It then falls into the icy water- stuff that you normally see in documentaries only.
Live like a local
The Inuit culture is one of the most unique cultures in the world. In fact, for this reason alone, you should come and visit Greenland. Join them as they hunt and fish. They mostly depend on animals for their diet. This even includes whale and seal. They are sociable people as they live in a small community where they know almost anyone. They love having guests coming over. Instead of renting a room, try staying at home in one of the local’s places. This makes it easier for you to imbibe the culture.
You can reach Greenland by flying via Denmark, Canada or Iceland. Air Greenland has regular flights to and from Copenhagen.
