June - travel to Greenland

In June, the last ice in the inner fjords and lakes will disappear. The sun circles the sky around the clock. A myriad of small plants and flowers explode into life, making the most of the short Arctic summer’s 24 hours of daylight. The air is still very clear and dry, so even a day with sun and plus 10-15 degrees will feel like a lovely summer day. A sure indication that June has arrived is the appearance of schools of capelin, locally known as ‘ammasat’. These fish travel along the coast, like a giant pantry for humans, seals and whales. The humpback whales feed closer to the coast and towns.
