An autonomous Danish territory, Greenland combines the power of Mother Nature with some of the most stunning scenery in the world. A trip to Greenland takes you to the planet's largest non-continental island, with the sparsest population in the world. Don't let that stop you from choosing a holiday in Greenland, the perfect chance to discover small towns and photogenic villages known for their colorful wooden cottages. The improving tourist network includes many hotels and hostels, as well as a slew of tour operators providing exiting outdoor activities.
