Greenland truly is a world of its own. Icebergs and the inland ice are probably the most famous aspects of the Greenlandic nature – and with good reason. Colossal icebergs in fantastic shapes of blue and white float on the deep blue sea.
Greenland is also about rugged mountains with beautiful wild flowers in many places, majestic fjords, precipitous cliffs, glaciers and skies so high and air so fresh. It is easy to see why it is not just people who enjoy living here. Animals also thrive here – at sea and on land – whales, seals, reindeer and musk oxen, to name but a few of the spectacular wildlife. In Greenland the past is never far away, and even in the biggest towns you experience culture of bygone times.
Tasiilaq and East Greenland
Natural wilderness the beauty of East Greenland’s natural wilderness combined with the Inuit cultural experience may very well result in your visit to Greenland ranking as one of your most cherished memories.
Tasiilaq and eastern Greenland are some of the most isolated habitations in the world. Along the more than 20,000 kilometers of coastline you’ll only encounter two towns and 5 small settlements, inhabited by no more than 3,500 people. As it is only just over 100 years since the first Europeans came to the area, the traditional Inuit culture still plays an important role in day-to-day life. The culture is still strong where life follows the heartbeat of nature. Hunting is still the main source of income for many people.
