Straddling the Arctic Circle, Greenland is the world's largest non-continental island and one of the most starkly beautiful. With its rugged coastal areas teeming with wildlife, magnificent glaciers and an undulating icy expanse as far as the eye can see, holidays to Greenland offer something truly unique.
This huge island is the homeland of the largest Inuit population in the world. With their fantastic ability to adapt to the severe climatic conditions and wild nature, they have survived where others found it impossible to live, mainly by fishing with a highly developed hunting technique of throwing weapons from kayaks. Towns and settlements are linked by sea or air only.
Greenland's inland area is 85% covered with ice, yet the coastal strip is ice free. The country is 13 times the size of the British Isles. The Arctic flora that grows profusely on the coastal strip is reputed to be the best in the whole of the Arctic region.
