Greenland Travel – Witness This Peculiar Wonder Of Nature with Your Family

Discover the world's largest island in this travel guide to Greenland

As strange as it may sound, Greenland really strikes you like a place that you’d be rushing to visit for your holidays with its other-worldly beauty and unique culture set to the icy backdrops and mixed cultures of Danish and Inuit. So why is it that you only hear about a place such as this now? Where has it been all this time? Surely Greenland is a thing of beauty.

Of course, like any other destination, Greenland has its ups and downs when it comes to the logistic side of the story, although if anything, it’s worth every second put into planning such a daunting trip for you and your family.

Icebergs at Greenland

Discover spectacular Greenland

What sets Greenland apart is the almost non-existent road travel system; let that sink in. Greenland is the world’s largest non-continental island, and it certainly shows. Due to the nature of the topography and climate, the majority of travel is done by boats or in some cases, helicopters or small planes that go up and down the islands. What this means for potential visitors is that in order to travel around and see all there is to see on the island, you’re going to need to plan this trip in advance.

The sum of affording to travel around and rent cottages on a place as remote as this can be hefty, but like we’ve mentioned, for most, it’s a once in a lifetime experience, so imagine how your family would feel if you told them you plan on taking them to see the famous Aurora Borealis up close? That spark in their eyes is all you need to start planning the trip itself.

Greenland capital Nuuk

Start your travel adventure with Nuuk

A good start to the trip would be visiting the capital of Greenland, Nuuk. The reason to start from the capital and work your way towards less populated parts of the island is because it’s the most modern and civilized part of Greenland with its city blocks, traffic and usual rush. It might be a good idea to visit this mountain city first off and then ask around the town on what to see next. Of course, for those faint of heart or families looking for a more relaxing trip, staying in Nuuk is just as great as traversing the island. The vast difference in architecture and history when compared to more civilized European counterparts is staggering and will surely keep you occupied for days on end.

Ilulissat

Funnily enough, the smallest town in Greenland is also the biggest tourist attraction of the island: the town of Ilulissat is a home to the most colorful architecture you’ll ever come across, with each house’s roof being differently colored and the town harbor serving as an iceberg pass, offering a peculiar insight into the everyday life of the locals.

Landscape in Greenland

It is UNESCO protected which means that it’s known globally for its natural heritage and that’s what bumped it up the list of the most visited small towns in the world, and the locals feel that; more and more the town is riddled with shops and souvenir stands with traditional Greenland gifts and accessories for all your tourist needs. The colorful city of Ilulissat is a wonderful place to visit with your family simply due to the fact that there’s nothing else like it in the world.

Whatever you end up deciding, your family will love you for it. Greenland with its Greenland holiday experts is a wonderful, one of a kind experience into a world that doesn’t exist in modern day and age, and even though it may take a while to get the money together to cover the expenses, know that it will be worth every penny.
