Iceland is a true dream destination for outdoor lovers & landscape photographers due its impressive, dramatic landscape. It is a volcanically and geologically active Nordic island country of Europe located in the North Atlantic Ocean. With its volcanoes, guysers, geothermal hot springs and its many waterfalls as well as glaciers it truly is the often claimed land of fire and ice.

Traveling Icelands Ring Road is the perfect way to get to know the country on and off the tourist paths. Therefore we took about 2 weeks to get to know Iceland properly by exploring waterfalls, canyons, hot springs, glacier caves, black beaches and of course the stunning coastlines all around the island finishing off in Reykjavik with the countries biggest music festival called „Iceland Airwaves“

It has always been a dream of mine to visit Greenland, see its natural wonders and explore the things to do in Greenland. In September 2018 I finally got the chance and flew to the capital to explore the things to do in Nuuk before going on a tour to the Greenland Ice Cap where I also saw the spectacular Northern Lights.

I chose Nuuk as it is a great base for independent travelers for several tour options, hikes and sights in and around the capital while also offering fairly reasonable prices. You can use this video as a guide for your visit to Greenland and you are free to leave more tips and recommendations for things to do in Nuuk in the comment section below!

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:
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

adventures.
I forgot one thing, we're gonna get you to

jump in the water at some point too.
Oh,

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,
do it!

And Vodka is your reward, mine's empty.
Another fantastic day here in Greenland, as

you can see, the landscape never stops changing.
See ya!

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.

48 Hours in Greenland 2019: Inuits, Icebergs and Insane Hikes

48 Hours in Greenland - Icebergs, Colorful Houses and Fjord Adventures

No, Greenland is not for sale, but it is open for business and well worth the trip!

A real dream for any traveler, Greenland is one of the most remote and mysterious countries on Earth. We got lucky enough to visit it in September and were absolutely stunned by this untouched country and its colorful capital Nuuk.
From the vast beauty of its beautiful landscapes to the joys of fishing your own dinner, through the discovery of ancient settlements and the cutest houses in the world, here’s our full guide to 48 Hours in Greenland.

48 Hours in Greenland | Day 1: Downtown Nuuk, Colorful Houses and Big Malene
With a direct Greenland Air flight to Nuuk from Copenhagen or Reykjavik, the Greenlandic capital is an absolute must-do when visiting Scandinavia and Northern Europe.

After our arrival in Nuuk and check-in in the Hotel Hans Egede, we headed off to discover downtown Nuuk and the beautiful colorful houses we saw so many pictures about.

Since Nuuk is small, we did all of downtown Nuuk on foot, from our hotel.

We started off visiting the Nuuk Cathedral, which is a tribute to the Christian influence on the nation, since the Inuits had different beliefs before Denmark settlements. The Cathedral is built in a similar Lutheran style compared to Icelandic churches - really worth the detour!

Right next to the Cathedral, we could visit the Nuuk National Museum and Cultural Center, which taught us a lot about Greenland, since in true Jeff and Anne fashion, we came without knowing much! Greenland has a long history of settlements, from the first Inuit settlers to the Danish in the last two centuries.

Dated to around 1475 AD, the oldest human remains found in Greenland are from Inuit mummies - we saw them in the museum, and warning, they’re quite chilling.

A little over the Museum you will find the famous Kolonihavn area, with its collection of wooden Inuit traditional houses, with an urban landscape filled with an amazing array of bright colors, from deep yellow to bright orange, from neon green to electric blue. What a view!

In the afternoon we attempted the summit of Big Malene, located in the most popular outdoor region of Nuuk, Quassussuaq.

The 2,493-foot-tall (761 m) Store Malene/Big Malene is a solid hike up to the peak, offering a great view of Nuuk, Akia (Nordlandet), Sermitsiaq and the Kangerluarsunnguaq Fjord with its spectacular glaciers.

All hiking trails are marked, the Big Malene being recognizable with its orange markings on the rocks alongside the trail.

You can take this hike with a guide, which we would recommend, however we attempted it on our own, being last minute as usual.

In dry weather, the ascent is pretty straightforward, albeit fairly difficult, but we attempted it with fog and rain and had to stop half way through due to too many slippery rocks. But we will be back, we said!

Since we couldn’t climb all the way up to Big Malene, we decided to go back and hike Lille Malene/Little Malene, around the same spot and offering impressive views of Nuuk, Akia, the surrounding regions and the spectacular sea.

Following this time the green markings on the rocks, we hiked around the lake for a couple hours, this time in dry weather!

Tip: The water in the streams is clean and drinkable! Bring a mug or bottle to scoop the water up with.

These two hikes are really the best outdoors trails to follow if you don’t have a car around Nuuk - accessible via bus number 1 from downtown Nuuk for 16 krones each (about $2.5), stopping in Qinngorput and heading from there. Our hotel had a hiking map of Nuuk which was also very helpful!

We took 2 boat tours during this trip, both with Nuuk Water Taxi in an open boat, with full life suits (did you see our video?).

The first tour was an amazing fishing and eat-your-own-fish boat tour, bringing us an hour boat ride away outside of Nuuk in Qooqqut Nuan to fish our dinner. We both caught fished in less than a minute in 65-meters deep water (brrr) and were brought to the unique restaurant on the island for them to cook it for us. Can’t beat it! The dinner was delicious, complete with soup, steamed and fried fish and rice, potatoes and vegetables.

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.

Greenland - Since 8 years I'm traveling to this magical country. Today quiet and untouched places are becoming more and more rare. On my first visit to Greenland, I was fascinated by the incredible power of nature that can be felt everywhere. But during the last years things have changed. The amount of icebergs is increasing savagely. Glaciers I'm visiting every year are retreating not meters but kilometers a year and the unending amount of ice seems to be endless. There is nothing more beautiful than an iceberg - everyone is unique and the light reflecting from its surface is magical. It's sad how close beauty and decay can be seen in an iceberg. This movie is is an appreciation to the ice - for me the most amazing aggregate state of water.

Behind the scenes
For this short film I travelled to Greenland with my drones several times. Always with the target of a certain region in a certain light situation. The shots from the calving glacier took me 4 days at the Eqi Glacier and over 70 battery charges for only 4 usable shots of a few seconds. It's a very hard intention to film the very right moment on a glacier front of about 6km wide - especially close up. But the hardest thing of flying in Greenland is the fact, that every 2-3 minutes the difference between the magnetic north and the geographic north (which are not the same place - especially so far north) causing a fatal p-gps flight error and the drone is flying away (also the camera's horizon). But at the end every single flight was worth it - filming Icebergs from above is one of the most beautiful things I've ever done. Additionally I used the drone to scout the landing spot and look for polar bears. The best thing for bears and humans is to not meet each other on shore.

Falling in Love With GREENLAND!

Greenland is a beautiful and magical place you will fall in love with! This travel video shows you what this country is like and how impressive the nature is!

This country has so much to offer when it comes to fauna, flora and landscapes. Some places are so unique and really don't seem to belong on planet Earth. They can only be described as magical.

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 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 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 56000, it is the least densely populated country in the world.
The few land mammals in Greenland include polar bear, reindeer, musk ox, arctic fox, wolf, stoat, and arctic hare. There are dozens of species of seals and whales along the coast.
Over 100 species of birds have been seen, and around 50 breed in Greenland.There are very occasionally low forests of birch or willow and, in all, around 500 plant species.

????Top Places To Visit In Greenland in 2019????

Greenland, an autonomous nation within the Kingdom of Denmark, can truly be said to be a world apart. The population numbers less than 60,000 in this, the most sparsely populated country and the largest non-continental island on Earth.
Bearing the climate in mind, transport here is somewhat unusual. There are virtually no roads between towns, so if you want to explore, it will be by boat, airplane, sled, or snowmobile. In fact, you'll find that some of the best things to do in Greenland are active ones: dog sledding, snowmobiling, hiking, walking on the ice cap, and traveling its waters by boat.

Why Greenland, and why now?

Greenland is sort of the Midwest of the planet, in that everyone flies over it but few consider visiting. It’s more than 20 times the size of Iceland but has one-sixth the population. At more than 836,000 square miles, Greenland is the world’s largest island, but home to only around 56,000 people. For comparison, my hometown of Littleton, Colorado, population 46,000, is less than 14 square miles.

Thanks to the Iceland tourism boom, there are cheap flights via Reykjavik all the time; from Reykjavik, the flight to the small airport at Constable Point on East Greenland is only about an hour and a half. The airport sits near the mouth of Kangertittivaq, or Scoresby Sund — the largest fjord in the world. Nearby is Ittoqqortoormiit, the northernmost community in East Greenland. Otherwise, no one lives here.

Western Greenland has seen an increase in tourism in recent years around Ilulissat and the capital city of Nuuk, but the East coast remains largely off the grid and inaccessible as far as travel goes. You mostly hear about the Antarctic ice sheet, but our planet has two such sheets, the second covering most of Greenland. As there’s not much in the way of land-based infrastructure (most is concentrated on the West coast), Scoresby Sund can really only be seen by boat.

Polar cruises are the best way to travel

There are many excellent cruises in the world, but I am normally opposed to them due to the fact that while I do not fear enclosed spaces, I do fear enclosed spaces promising Organized Fun with strangers. This fear, however, is not as strong as my desire to spend as much time as possible in the Arctic Circle, and when Quark Expeditions invited me on a 10-day trip around Scoresby Sund they also turned me into a person who was excited to go on a cruise.

It helped that this was not a typical cruise. Small adventure cruises (maybe 100 people, including crew) like this are growing in popularity as an alternative to the cartoonish, supersized outings around the Caribbean etc. Quark specializes in polar expeditions -- both Arctic and Antarctic -- and are one of very few cruise lines that go to Greenland’s east coast. The ones that do tend to make it a drive-by on routes that focus on other destinations like Norway.

Packages vary; the specific trip I joined, “Greenland’s Northern Lights,” runs $6,695. You’ll want to budget a few hundred dollars more for add-ons like kayaking, drinking, silent auction-bidding and, of course, tipping. Quark’s expedition crew are all knowledgeable in different areas — history, marine biology, glaciology, and photography — so the cruise feels very deliberate — rest assured, you’re not just getting mindlessly steered around. An average cruise day would include breakfast followed by a morning activity like a hike, kayak expedition or Zodiac cruise, an up-close tour of icebergs and glaciers upon inflatable boats. After lunch, afternoon activities continue in the same vein. The itinerary is pretty flexible, contingent on weather and unexpected experiences like bear sightings.

Wait, will I see polar bears?

Polar bears only evolved around 150,000 years ago, but are predicted to go extinct within the next couple of decades, a sad, tiny blip in this planet’s history. And sure you can see them in zoos, but seeing them in the wild is something else entirely. On day one of Quark’s cruise, we saw 11 polar bears -- females with cubs making their way down to the water and disappearing into slow-moving wakes as they started to swim, and even lone males moving steadily across high plateaus, getting harder and harder to find again in binoculars as it started to snow. Pro-tip: Polar bears are generally best viewed during the brief summer season.

One of the things the Arctic has over the Antarctic is that it’s an incredible wildlife destination -- a region where you can see not just polar bears, but musk ox, arctic fox, arctic hare, seals, whales, maybe even narwhals. (Narwhals aren’t likely, TBH, as they’re an exceedingly rare sighting, but perhaps you’ll be one of the lucky ones.) If you’re mostly interested in wildlife, Quark offers focused packages that get you tracking down your favorite critters.

In this travel vlog I cover going from Iceland to Greenland, Flying over Greenland, Day 1 of my Greenland tour, eating Whale meat and yet another Drone Crash. I broke my drone camera last year so to me a drone broken means a chance to fix a broken drone, actually! I will do a Greenland video in Hindi soon and until then in this Greenland vlog, you can also check out the hostel where I stayed and more. Also this is Greenland in 4k! So sit back and enjoy the land of ice and snow with Punjabi Wanderer! P.S. the latest news about Greenland Ice Melting is not just disheartening but alarming too. I'd like to request you all to stand up for Climate Change. Climate Change is Real!

Could You Live Here? (Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland)

► INSTAGRAM?

WELCOME TO ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST ISOLATED PLACES!

Today I arrived in one of the world's most remote villages, way out here on the rugged North Eastern shores of Greenland. It's called Ittoqqortoormiit (say that 5 times fast) and it's a fascinating place that feels like I'm on the moon!

Very few outsiders have ever visited this village because it's so remote, and I'm lucky to be one of them on board this Hurtigruten expedition!

Ittoqqortoormiit has a population of around 350 and the nearest town is thousands of kilometers away. The locals are called inuits (same ethnic group as eskimos), and they survive from hunting and eating polar bears, walrus, seals and whales.

Could you ever live here?

GREENLAND TRAVEL GUIDE. Best Places to Visit in GREENLAND | TOP 20 part 1

Hi friends. This video about GREENLAND. See more on same playlist.

Greenland (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Nunaat, pronounced [kalaːɬit nunaːt]; Danish: Grønland, pronounced [ˈkʁɶnˌlænˀ]) is the world's largest island,[d] located between the Arctic and Atlantic oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. It is an autonomous territory[10] within the Kingdom of Denmark. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and Denmark, the colonial powers, as well as the nearby island of Iceland) for more than a millennium.[11] The majority of its residents are Inuit, whose ancestors migrated from Alaska through Northern Canada, gradually settling across the island by the 13th century.[12]

Nowadays, the population is largely concentrated on the southwest coast, while the rest of the island is sparsely populated. Greenland is divided into five municipalities — Sermersooq, Kujalleq, Qeqertalik, Qeqqata, and Avannaata. It has two unincorporated areas — the Northeast Greenland National Park and the Thule Air Base. The last one, even if under Danish control, is administered by the United States Air Force.[13] Three-quarters of Greenland is covered by the only permanent ice sheet outside Antarctica. With a population of 56,081 (2020),[6] it is the least densely populated territory in the world.[14] About a third of the population lives in Nuuk, the capital and largest city. The Arctic Umiaq Line ferry acts as a lifeline for western Greenland, connecting the various cities and settlements.

Greenland has been inhabited at intervals over at least the last 4,500 years by Arctic peoples whose forebears migrated there from what is now Canada.[15][16] Norsemen settled the uninhabited southern part of Greenland beginning in the 10th century, having previously settled Iceland. These Norsemen would later set sail from Greenland and Iceland, with Leif Erikson becoming the first known European to reach North America nearly 500 years before Columbus reached the Caribbean islands. Inuit peoples arrived in the 13th century. Though under continuous influence of Norway and Norwegians, Greenland was not formally under the Norwegian crown until 1261. The Norse colonies disappeared in the late 15th century when Norway was hit by the Black Death and entered a severe decline. Soon after their demise, beginning in 1499, the Portuguese briefly explored and claimed the island, naming it Terra do Lavrador (later applied to Labrador in Canada).[17]

In the early 18th century, Danish explorers reached Greenland again. To strengthen trading and power, Denmark–Norway affirmed sovereignty over the island. Because of Norway's weak status, it lost sovereignty over Greenland in 1814 when the union was dissolved. Greenland became Danish in 1814, and was fully integrated in the Danish state in 1953 under the Constitution of Denmark. In 1973, Greenland joined the European Economic Community with Denmark. However, in a referendum in 1982, a majority of the population voted for Greenland to withdraw from the EEC, which was effected in 1985. Greenland contains the world's largest and most northerly national park, Northeast Greenland National Park (Kalaallit Nunaanni nuna eqqissisimatitaq). Established in 1974, and expanded to its present size in 1988, it protects 972,001 square kilometres (375,292 sq mi) of the interior and northeastern coast of Greenland and is bigger than all but twenty-nine countries in the world.

In 1979, Denmark granted home rule to Greenland; in 2008, Greenlanders voted in favor of the Self-Government Act, which transferred more power from the Danish government to the local Greenlandic government. Under the new structure, in effect since 21 June 2009,[18] 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, while the Danish government retains control of foreign affairs and defence. It also retains control of monetary policy, providing an initial annual subsidy of DKK 3.4 billion, which is planned to diminish gradually over time. Greenland expects to grow its economy based on increased income from the extraction of natural resources. The capital, Nuuk, held the 2016 Arctic Winter Games. At 70%, Greenland has one of the highest shares of renewable energy in the world, mostly coming from hydropower.
