Welcome to Greenland.
We're here on the Greenland Explorer withQuark Expeditions and we're joined by the Expedition Leader, Alex McNeil.
Can you just run us through what maybe 24
hours might be like on the ship here?
An average day for me would probably be waking
up around 5 O'clock, and heading to the bridge
looking at local conditions, ice weather,
current, assessing our progress, towards our
proposed destination and looking for any opportunities
along the way.
And the essentially we have a time where we
plan to wake the passengers up.
Usually anywhere from 5:30 to 7:30 at the
latest, sometimes we give people a little
bit of a sleep in.
Then we go out on a morning excursion for
sure, for example, this morning we had a zodiac
cruise and a landing, the tide just got out,
we had a really good extended hike, and we're
going to assess opportunities.
Ready for a great day on the water!
Ship cruise the entirety of the Fjord, it's
about 60 miles
Picturesque jagged peaks, glaciers, that will
be great regardless, and who knows what opportunities
will present for zodiac cruises and other
I forgot one thing, we're gonna get you to
jump in the water at some point too.
Because we're back in the ice, and we've got
a little bit colder water, so it's time for
a polar plunge.
I like that, it's a little bit colder water.
We want it to be as cold as possible so people
can get the true feeling of the Polar Plunge.
If you go on a Quark Expedition Ship, make
sure to do the polar plunge, whether it's
in the Antarctic or it's up here in Greenland,
And Vodka is your reward, mine's empty.
Another fantastic day here in Greenland, as
you can see, the landscape never stops changing.
Another UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Wow, behind me is Jacobs Harbour, and this
is a harbour filled with ice bergs that come
from Jacobs Glacier.
And as we were told, all of these ice bergs,
eventually make it out of here and travel
all the way to Canada.
Walking in the Tundra in the Arctic.
It's the spirit of adventure,
You never know what's going to happen and
that's what great about the Arctic.
It's just adventure around every corner.
Cheers from Greenland.
So you know if you need any motivation to
go to the Arctic, well you got it now.
Come to Greenland, we'll see you there.

NUUK - Travel in Nuuk, Greenland
Adventure, incredible hiking, fishing and boat rides - it doesn’t get much more picturesque than Greenland and nowhere more so than the capital city Nuuk.
If you loved our look at Nuuk, check out the site for more articles on Greenland - - and make sure to SUBSCRIBE for tons of travel porn, including two more episodes in Southern Greenland -
Nuuk is the capital of Greenland, and with about 17,000 residents, it holds almost a quarter of the population of the whole country.
In this episode, Brianna and Macca discover what the city has to offer and go on some epic adventures just outside of it.
There is a lot going on in this big city with a small town feel, from nightlife to concerts and more and more restaurants popping up.
Within minutes in any direction, you can find a gorgeous look out point.
We met up with Anna Nivika, a local food blogger who is really changing the way that Greenlanders use food.
We had to try some for ourselves, and got to experience a traditional Greenlandic BBQ on the beach at Inuk Hostels.
We went on two tours with Touring Greenland that blew us away. First, we visited the abandoned settlement of Kangeq and loved it so much that we planned another.
We went on the most incredible hike amongst mountains, streams and snow, ending up at the edge of a giant waterfall. We were met with a boat that picked us up and took us fishing for our dinner.
Once we had caught it, we visited a restaurant that cooked our fish for us, along with a plethora of other delicious treats.

Iceland Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia
With a population of only 300,000, Iceland can feel like the most isolated place on earth, yet its capital Reykjavik, is only a three-hour flight from London and just under six from New York.
Reykjavik is relaxed and welcoming, yet possesses a cultural life that holds its own against other European capitals. Most buildings are built simple and low to beat the North Atlantic winds. However, the city is also graced with grand civic architecture inspired by Iceland’s natural beauty, such as the soaring central tower of Hallgrímskirkja.
Many of the country’s most popular sights are within easy reach of Reykjavík. Immerse yourself in the spirit of Iceland, at the Blue Lagoon. Then spend a day or two in The Golden Circle, an area which encompasses three of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders; Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir Geothermal Field, and Gullfoss.
Iceland’s main ring road strings together an endless series of epic landscapes. Less than two hours drive east of Reykjavik are two of the world’s most beautiful waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Continue eastward towards Vík, Iceland’s southern-most village, where you’ll find the dramatic landscapes of Black Beach, Reynisdrangar, and Dyrholaey. Follow the ring road for another two hours into the ethereal light of Jökulsárlón Lake, where icebergs break away from Europe’s largest glacier and float for years before tumbling out to sea.
Head north and feel the earth rumble at Europe’s mightiest waterfall, Dettifoss. Then explore the Myvatn region, a tranquil lake surrounded by nature in all its violent beauty. Take a careful walk through the boiling landscape of Namafjall, lose yourself amid the lava pillars of Dimmuborgir, and peer into the caldera of Krafla Volcano.
Known as the Capital of the North, Akureyri is the perfect place to warm up and enjoy some creature comforts, before heading off into the wilds again. In Iceland, every side road is a story waiting to unfold. So come, and live your own Icelandic story, it’s one you’ll keep telling for the rest of your days.

Discover the best of West Greenland
Those who travel to Greenland meet a world where European culture meshes with that of the Inuit in a harsh but beautiful landscape of ice, rock and the sea. Greenland or “Kalaallit Nunaat” (“Land of the People) in the Greenlandic language is a place of extremes.
13 Coldest Places on Earth
From the places that had the Coldest Day Ever to the place that has the most extreme climate and is names the Coldest Place on Earth
Subscribe to American Eye
7. South America Coldness
In contrast to North America and Eastern Russia, South America might seem like Death Valley. The coldest temperature ever re corded in South America was only -38 degrees fahrenheit in the San Juan province of Argentina. Many people would argue that the southern tip is the coldest place in South America ....
6. Verkhoyansk, Russia
Once again Russia makes our list thanks to extremely harsh subarctic climate. Be sure to pack an ushanka if you decide to come here because most of the land is made up of permafrost or frozen soil. Located in the Sakha, Republic of Russia, you wouldn’t have to travel far to reach the arctic ocean The temperature differences between summer and winter are quite shocking. The town holds the guinnes sworld record for the greatest temperature range that can differ 189 degrees F. How is that even possible. It can reach temperatures of 99 degrees in Summer but has gone as low as -90 degrees in both January and February. You do the math! Despite the drastic changes, about 2,000 call this place home.
5. Brocken Mountain, Germany
This place in Germany is certainly home to some extreme weather conditions. It might not have the record for coldest place on Earth, but it certainly has the capability of continuous, relentless snowstorms that can last months without stopping. Due to its exposed location of storms coming from Scandinavia and high elevation, it has an alpine like climate similar to Alaska or Iceland. Brocken Mountain has the highest precipitation of point in Northern Central Europe, the lowest temperature ever recorded was -18 degrees but take into consideration the surrounding ice and snowstorms this place is capable of, you should try to watch. This photo here, shows snow crystals clinging onto the trees in Brocken mountain, after a snowstorm covered the area in 31 inches of snow.
4. The Coldest Capital
What do you think the coldest capital on earth is? Moscow, Bern, Ottawa? All Wrong! If you guessed Ulaanbaatar located in Mongolia good job! This city is regarded as the coldest capital on earth and suffers from long and unbearable freezing winters! We don’t even think Genghis Khan could have handled temperatures this cold. Just walking on the street with any exposed skin can result in pain. You really wouldn't want to forget a jacket living here. It’s also the largest city on the list with roughly 1.3 million inhabitants which is nearly half the country's population. Due to it’s high elevation, proximity to Siberia and lack of precipitation, it’s a rough place to live nonetheless. Due to a large amount of permafrost soil in Mongolia, it makes building foundations difficult. It’s believed this is why many Mongolians live in houses known as Yurts.
3. Eismitte, Greenland
Located in Central Greenland, this was the site of an expedition that took place during 1930 and 1931. Eismitte in German means central ice and refers to the campsite that was built. The coldest temperature recorded here was -85 degrees F and the warmest only reaching 27 degrees; which is still below freezing. It never seems to get above freezing here even during summer. The record high recorded in the month of July was still only 28 degrees. There’s basically no summer here. Here in this photo you the frigid campsite that was built in 1930. A 45 foot deep pit was built which served as a living quarters for the 7 month long expedition.
2. Plateau Station Antarctica
This is currently an inactive research center at the Antarctic plateau . Construction first began on December 13th 1965 and it was built for solar observation, micro meteorology studies, atmospheric studies and other things. This is the 2nd coldest place on earth and the lowest recorded temperature here was negative 123 degrees F on July 20, 1968. Summers here are obviously short and are always below zero degrees F. The winters are long, frigid and dark, making you wonder why anyone would want to do research here. A scientist there stated that every breath he took outside was painful and you had to worry about freezing your lungs or throat while inhaling.
This is the coldest place on earth. This was formerly a Soviet research station, very far inland on Antarctica. If anyone could deal with the extreme cold here, we imagine it would be the Russians!. The coldest month in Vostok Antarctica is the month of August, which would normally be the hottest for most people in the Northern Hemisphere! But this is Antarctica! But that doesn’t mean their summers are warm at all. The hottest temperature ever recorded here was in the month of January, reach 10 degrees F in 2002. The record low was an astonishing -128 degrees here. The research station has 4 months of no sunlight during its winter.
The Beauty of Greenland in 4K
Sailing through the midnight sun in Greenland, a dream becomes reality. In July I visited Greenland for the first time. With our small sailing boat we discovered the icefjords around Ilulissat and captured amazing photos and videos every night. Grab some warm clothes and enjoy my latest work The Beauty of Greenland. Thanks to Daniel Kordan and Iurie Belegurschi for that great experience while our midsummer photo tour through Western Greenland (

Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of Greenland
Thanks for watching........
Greenland is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and later Denmark) for more than a millennium. In 2008, the people of Greenland passed a referendum supporting greater autonomy; 75% of votes cast were in favour. Greenland is, in terms of area, the world's largest island, over three-quarters of which is covered by the only contemporary ice sheet outside of Antarctica. With a population of 56,370 (2013), it is the least densely populated country in the world.
Greenland has been inhabited off and on for at least the last 4,500 years by Arctic peoples whose forebears migrated there from Canada.Norsemen settled on the uninhabited southern part of Greenland beginning in the 10th century. Inuit peoples arrived in the 13th century. The Norse colonies disappeared in the late 15th century. In the early 18th century, Scandinavia and Greenland came back into contact with each other, and Denmark established sovereignty over the island.
Having been ruled by Denmark--Norway for centuries, Greenland (Danish: Grønland) became a Danish colony in 1814, and a part of the Danish Realm in 1953 under the Constitution of Denmark. In 1973, Greenland joined the European Economic Community with Denmark. However, in a referendum in 1983, a majority of the population voted for Greenland to withdraw from the EEC, and Greenland officially withdrew in 1985. In 1979, Denmark granted home rule to Greenland, and in 2008, Greenlanders voted in favour of the Self-Government Act which transferred more power from the Danish royal government to the local Greenlandic government. Under the new structure, in effect since 21 June 2009, Greenland can gradually assume responsibility for policing, judicial system, company law, accounting and auditing; mineral resource activities; aviation; law of legal capacity, family law and succession law; aliens and border controls; the working environment; and financial regulation and supervision. The Danish government retains control of foreign affairs and national defence. It also retains control of monetary policy, providing an initial annual subsidy of DKK 3.4 billion, slated to diminish gradually over time as Greenland's economy is strengthened by increased income from the extraction of natural resources.
