Although an area of the far Northeast America, Greenland, which is the largest non-continental island in the World, has historically associated itself with Europe. Still a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, Greenland was granted self-governance status in 1979. Apart from a whole lot of glaciers, icebergs and inland ice, Greenland features beautiful green mountains with wild flowers, long fjords, precipitous cliffs and several hot springs. The thriving fauna within Greenland seas and on land include whales, seals, walrus, musk, reindeer, oxen and polar bears.
Home to the Midnight Sun and the dancing Northern Lights, northeastern Greenland showcases the world’s largest national park, where in fact, there are more animals than people. The unique unspoiled scenery and wildlife within the northern hemisphere regions is not a national park in the traditional sense. With Ittoqquortoormiit Town within Greenland providing a firm base, these regions are open to several international scientific surveys, expeditions and organized tourist cruises with secured and necessary permissions.
