Thule Air Base, Qaanaaq

3.2
#8 of 13 in Sightseeing in Greenland
Tourist Spot Military Facility
The northernmost base of the U.S. Air Force, Thule Air Base seems to stand on top of the world, surrounded by ice and snow. A tour of the base takes you to the control room, where the crew receives warnings about potential missiles, as well as the dorms, theater, bowling alley, and other amenities for the people who work here. Dine in the onsite restaurant, or don your warmest gear and venture outside to look for polar bears and foxes.
