Five Unique Arctic attractions are:
Natural scenery from another world. That’s the Northern Lights when they appear in the dark Greenland sky. It is the particles dance with molecules- strange, sensual and breathtaking.
Ice & Snow
Experience the ice sheet in all its might. Get close to a strange Island kingdom of icebergs that float majestically and live their own lives. You will see ice everywhere_ from the deck of a ship, a helicopter, a dogsled or on a hike.
“The only thing we know for sure is that what it is meant to happen will happen”. These words from a life experienced Greenlander represents the Greenlandic national spirit; fatalism, calm and optimism. Greenlanders are preserving people who stand together in a world where nature plays the lead role every day.
“Whale ahead”. Suddenly the sea is filled with tail fins and glistening bodies, which rise towards the sky. It makes you jump the first time one of these magnificent mammals tumbles forward with a spout-greeting to those waiting patiently on deck.
Listen to the runners as they sing over the snowy surface. A half hour, four hours, a day, or several days staying overnight in cabins. A winter experience even in summer on disko Island’s glacier.
