Low humidity is a good news for all people who are scared of cold in Greenland; when the air is dry, the low temperatures don’t feel so cold. 😉
Is it cold in Greenland?
Well, it is often cold.
Cold places are “cool”. 😉
Greenland has an Arctic climate with average temperatures about 10 degrees Celsius in the warmest months (it can be even around 20C). Winder is colder, much colder; so you really have to plan what kind of clothes you should take with you for visiting Greenland. At the end, “cold” is a part of unique experience in Greenland. 😉
Can you believe there are hot springs in Greenland?
“They are not due to volcanic activity, as is the case on Iceland. It appears that the water is heated by deep layers in the earth’s crust rubbing against each other.” (source: https://visitgreenland.com)
The temperature of hot springs in Greenland varies between ~37-60 degrees Celsius.
Dog sledding is an interesting experience you can have in Greenland, in winter.
At some point, I was thinking “poor dogs”, but these dogs actually don’t mind low temperatures and love to run; so it’s definitely far far from “elephants in Thailand”, etc.
Just be aware, that sled dogs are “kind of wild dogs”, even looking extra cute, they can be pet only if the owner allows to do so!
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:
