What is there to see in Greenland?
If you ask a tour leader who has travelled all over Greenland for several years, he / she would probably answer South Greenland. There are many good hiking opportunities and the sheep farms are amazing to stay overnight and thus be close to the locals.
If you are wondering about icebergs and the midnight sun, Disko Bay is the best option. Disko Bay contains everything that typically appears on television about Greenland. It’s incredibly beautiful here, with many whales during summer and magical light illuminating the huge icebergs.
And then there is also beautiful East Greenland. True culture meets modern life.
