Greenland is a stunning country and provides a fantastic opportunity to see the Northern Lights.
Greenland is located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. It is the world’s largest island, although it is smaller than Australia, which is considered a continent. Three-quarters of Greenland is covered by the only permanent ice sheet outside of Antarctica. It’s location provides a fantastic opportunity to see the Northern Lights, to witness the Midnight Sun, to engage with the wonderful Inuit community and to see whales in their local habitat.
The Northern Lights also known as the Aurora Borealis are one of the greatest attractions of the Arctic. This stunning array of colour brightens up the night time sky. It is an awe-inspiring sight, which is caused by eruptions on the sun and can only be seen at night.
The Midnight Sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months of the Arctic Circle. At midnight at local time the sun remains visible. Stark white daylight turns into warm evening hues, but still the sun remains in plain sight for one perpetual day.
Greenland is an ideal destination to spot humpback whales, fin whales and minke whales. Seeing your first sighting of a whale is a truly magnificent sight.
