Greenland’s wildlife

As 80% of Greenland is covered by an inhospitable ice sheet, you’ll discover most wildlife around the ice-free periphery. In the coastal waters, rich in fish, look for humpback whales and seals. Little Auks, Snowy Owls and Greenland Gyrfalcons are among the birds you’ll be on the lookout for here.

Ice-hewn landscapes
