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.

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.

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.

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.

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“

Visit Greenland - www.greenland.com/en/

Greenland is the world's largest island. It is also the country with the lowest population density and one of the smallest capitals in the world.

It is a rugged, mountainous, contrasting land with the enormous Greenland Ice Sheet at its center and an adventurous, welcoming people at its core.

From the Arctic desert landscapes in the far north to Atlantic influences and lush sheep farms in the south, a distinct cultural and climatic diversity shapes our way of living across the geographical vastness of the island as much as it will inspire your travel experience.

We rely equally on hunting, fishing, wireless internet and each other to keep the country together and moving forward. We live under the northern lights in winter and the midnight sun in summer, in a place where dogsledding and skateboarding exist side by side, where fishermen and academics come from the same families, and were we communicate wirelessly one moment and navigate between huge icebergs the next.

This makes Greenland an exciting destination for all adventure minded travelers, and to learn more about the nature, climate, culture, and spirit of Greenland you can explore a range of stories from this page :

Could You Live Here? (Ittoqqortoormiit, Greenland)

► SUBSCRIBE for daily travel videos:
► INSTAGRAM? Join me @drewbinsky!

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 off hunting and eating polar bears, walrus, seals and whales.

Could you ever live here?
