Greenland scenery

Antarctic Peninsula

Region: Arctic

Destinations: Greenland

Huge glaciers

​Huge outlet glaciers slowly slide down the mountains towards the sea where the ice breaks of and creates the huge cathedral like icebergs that are so abundant in the Greenlandic waters.

Northern lights (Aurora borealis)

Not many people know that the south of Greenland is located at exactly the right latitude for seeing the Aurora Borealis. The Northern Lights are caused by eruptions on the sun and can only be seen when it is dark. The fairly long periods of darkness in September make our Greenland expeditions an ideal opportunity to admire this unbelievable phenomenon.
