Greenland is located east of northern Canada and is the largest Island in the world. It possesses nearly 8% of the Earth's grounded ice and some of the world's largest glaciers. Occupying over half of the island north of the Arctic Circle, Greenland offers a scenic landscape of icy glaciers and wildlife. Politically, the island is a part of Europe, but geographically it sits closer to North America. Although small in number, the native Intuit people who inhabit Greenland live in close-knit villages and towns.
Prins Christian Sund
There is enough ice across Greenland, up to two miles thick, to raise the world's oceans by 20 feet if melted. Sail the calm waters of Prins Christian Sund for an opportunity to view these mammoth glaciers and icebergs.
One of the world's fastest moving glaciers sits on the southwest coast of Greenland. Named Jakobshavn, this glacier is one of the major drainage outlets of Greenland's interior ice sheet.
Greenland's climate attracts diverse wildlife, such as seals, reindeer and musk oxen. It also boasts a wide range of bird species as well as sightings of migrating whales.
