Parks & Attractions in Greenland

discover the best parks & attractions in Greenland

Greenland’s gigantic interior ice sheet covers more than four-fifths of the country’s surface – some 660,000 square miles – which means you’ll never be far from the ocean during your safari here. Luckily, the island’s coastlines are studded by an array of spectacular bays and fjords home to icebergs, fishing boats and marine mammals, as well as picturesque towns and villages hugging the shores that are painted in the quintessentially Scandinavian palate of bright blues, reds, greens and yellows. From the remote settlement of Ittoqqortoormiit on Greenland’s rugged east coast, you can traverse Arctic tundra in search of muskox and Arctic fox before sailing into the world’s largest and deepest fjord system, Scoresbysund. And on the west coast, the cosmopolitan capital of Nuuk marks the entrance to the world’s second-largest fjord system, populated by humpback whales in the summer. Further north, the nutrient-rich waters of Disko Bay attract seals, walrus and a host of different whale species, while nearby you can witness one of the fastest-moving glaciers in the world calve into the sea at the Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Wherever your safari takes you, the majesty of Greenland’s wildlife and wild landscape will be inescapable.
