Reasons to visit East Greenland


If Greenland is known for one thing, it is probably its amazing views of the Aurora Borealis. Known to most as the “Northern Lights,” this majestic display of natural light in the northern sky is breathtaking to say the least.

The Greenlandic people believe the dancing of the Northern Lights are their “ancestors’ spirits playing football [soccer] in the sky.” Some of the best displays in August and September can be found near Scoresbysund Fjord where the white and green colours dance around the night’s sky. Meteorologists say that 2013 will have the best display of lights in over a decade. So take a blanket, a hot drink and sit back and enjoy the show on a clear night!
