Greenland tailor-made holidays


Greenland, the world's biggest non-continental island, is often the last place people think to visit - 'When you've seen the world, there's always Greenland' goes the old adage. However, the magnificent scenery, clarity of light and extremes of nature that they encounter often stun those that do make it here.

The Northern Lights, vast, empty tundra, enormous glaciers that shed iceberg-sized chunks into the sea and an ancient glacial coastline are just some of the attractions.

The west coast is dotted with dozens of villages made up of colourful, photogenic matchbox houses. Nanortalik is relaxed and friendly and a jumping off point for the wild countryside and fabulous rock-climbing in the area. The capital Nuuk also stands here.

Elsewhere, sail through South Greenalnd's most magnificent fjordland scenery to Aappilattoq, catch your breath while gazing on the granite ramparts of Uiluit Qaaqa and Ulamertorsuaq at Tasermiut Fjord, hike to Kiattuut Sermiat to see a stunning mountain lake, explore the well-preserved Norse ruins at Hvalsey and Qassiarsuk or simply slip into the hot springs at Uunartoq and watch icebergs drift by while you relax.
