I never thought much about Greenland to be honest. Even as an avid traveler with a lot of places on my “bucket list”, I had not thought about venturing to this autonomous country (part of the Denmark), located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans and east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago with a population of only 56,370 people. Though physiographically a part of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and later Denmark) for more than a millennium. While the population is small, Greenland is, in terms of area, the world’s largest island, with over three quarters of its land covered by the only contemporary ice sheet outside of Antarctica. It is now on the bucket list as I had a chance to learn more about this charming place during my time in Iceland recently. Below are some shots I took flying over Greenland en route from Iceland to Canada. Taken in late June 2013.
