If Greenland cannot be called “Iceland”, maybe “Glacierland” is still an option? 😀
Of course, I’m joking; nevertheless, the huge area of Greenland is covered by ice sheet so glaciers are popular in Greenland.
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.

When is the best time to visit Greenland?

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. 😉
