Greenland’s icy terrain has many travellers shying away to its ironically greener southern neighbour, Iceland. But there’s no need to shy - Greenland abounds with activities for the adventure seeker. In a country where roads and railways do not exist- skis, dogsleds and helicopters are the best way to get around, and visitors should be prepared to get off the beaten track.
Just because this island isn’t in the Caribbean doesn’t mean travellers should neglect the coast lines and the sea. A boat trip through the fjords is the perfect way to catch a glimpse of majestic whales - although in this part of the ocean, the sea mammals will have to compete for cruisers’ attention with the imposing mass of the icebergs scattered throughout the water, including famous Ilulissat Icefjord.
