Apparently, Kangerlussuaq has more than 300 days of clear sky a year.
Well, I’m not sure how much truth is in this sentence. 😉
The northern lights are a wonderful phenomenon. Its idea is relatively simple, but it’s still very fascinating and effective.
Long, dark nights in Greenland (with “some help from the Sun” 😉 ) give a great opportunity to observe northern lights.
p.s. I was already writing about northern lights, that I’ve seen in Norway; so you’ll find seem practical issues in my previous posts:
When is the best time to visit Greenland?
-Well, the answer is not so obvious. Summer gives lots of possibilities for tourists. However, visiting Greenland in winter is a unique experience; and in winter you have almost 100% chances to see northern lights!
I was in Greenland in winter, and I loved it. I have to admit, I still would love to visit Greenland in summer, hopefully one day.
5 species of seals can be find in Greenland, i.e., the ringed seal, the harp seal, the hooded seal, and two less common – the bearded seal and the common seal.
Seals are quite safe in Greenland, they just should stay away from polar bear and arctic fox. 😉
The musk ox (musk-ox or muskox) is the largest land mammal living in Greenland.
From far, musk ox looks like a brown stone (at least some people say it); from close – it’s kind of bison (from my point of view).
On today’s picture, you cannot see any musk ox; or maybe one is hiding in a “house of the lords”. 😉
However, it’s quite easy to spot musk ox or reindeer in Greenland; I’ve seen many of them just didn’t manage to take a good close up photo of musk ox.
