Many think of Greenland and picture a barren frozen wasteland. It’s not a wasteland at all (even if you’re thinking back to school and remembering the teachings that Greenland is icy white, Iceland is emerald green). Greenland is a glorious winter wonderland that will take your breath away.
Did you know that the Greenland Ice Sheet covers roughly 80% of Greenland’s surface? It holds about 10% of the world’s ice and is the second largest body of ice in the world after the Antarctica Ice Sheet.
Greenland’s glacial glories have made this northerly island one of the places I must visit and soon! All I need before leaving is a new set of winter clothes; I don’t think my Floridan sweaters are gonna cut it, do you?
