Greenland’s endowed with beauty defined by nature at its rawest, unusual phenomena and incredible, breathtaking landscapes. My Greenland excursion was full of adventure – I bring you, as usual, the very best moments! Here are 6 reasons why you should absolutely cruise you way to Greenland!
Northern lights (Aurora)
Greenland has one of the best vantage points for seeing the Northern lights – a natural light spectacle occurring in the Earth’s sky and best seen in the Arctic’s. The aurora’s truly a bewitching sight – a dramatic color phenomenon on a clear, night sky. We witnessed an incredible sight of a band of light comprising pink, green, yellow and blue. Tip: Between September and April is the best time to see the aurora!
The World’s largest national park: Greenland hosts the largest national park ever. We witnessed a rich and rare diversity of flora and fauna – with such animals as the musk oxen, magnificent polar bears, walrus, stoat, and collared lemming, marine mammals such as seals, narwhals and beluga whales, and unique birds such as the great northern diver, barnacle goose, king eider, gyrfalcon, snowy owl, sanderling and ptarmigan.
