The fire, frost and water symbolized by the red, white and blue of Iceland’s flag are manifested in this land. Reykjavik, or Smoky Bay, was so named in 874 A.D. by Ingolf Arnarson when he sighted the numerous hot springs on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. Today this remarkably pollution-free city is wrapped around a sweeping bay and has managed to retain its charming Old-World atmosphere. A pastiche of red-blue-and green-roofed houses together with the tall gray tower of Hallgrim’s Church dominate the skyline. In Old Town, many of the wooden buildings have been lovingly restored and stand side by side with modern timber and concrete structures. There are fine museums and art galleries; historic pubs present activity in late afternoon. The beautiful countryside outside of Reykjavik includes such natural wonders as volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and spectacular waterfalls.

Prince Christian Sound

8/17/2020

This narrow 70-mile-long channel across the southernmost tip of Greenland is breathtakingly dramatic. Huge glaciers tumble down towards the rugged coast from the Greenland ice cap-exactly the kind of scene that inspired one Greenlandic poet to declare: 'I get dizzy of all this beauty'. A thousand years ago, just north of here at Narsarsuaq, Eric the Red established his farm amid 6,000-foot mountains and glaciers.

Nuuk
8/19/2020
8/19/2020

Nuuk was founded by the unfailingly optimistic Hans Egede - the Danish missionary with soul-conversions on his mind - who promptly named the settlement Good Hope. Today Nuuk is small by modern standards, with a total population of only 14,000. Despite a wealth of land and a paucity of people, Nuuk has insisted on housing the population in immense apartment blocks with imaginative names like Blok P - a kind of Gulag on ice - and the urban sprawl is now spreading out along the road to the airport. Kolonihavnen is a pleasant exception to the rest of Nuuk's Lego-city look: it's a picturesque 18th-century fishing village in the heart of Nuuk and gives some idea of what the town looked like before the industrial harbour was built. Nuuk's real attraction lies in its proximity to any number of excellent day hikes into the hinterland and the fabulous views from the tops of the nearby mountains. Organised tours, boat trips and the rental of equipment is easier from the capital.

Sisimuit

8/20/2020

Sisimuit is a growing town located in western Greenland. It is one of the main village destinations in Greenland, and an administrative center for the Qeqqata Municipality. The population of Sisimiut was recorded of 5,598 inhabitants living in the town in 2013. One of the main attractions is the multicolor Northern Lights of the Aurora Borelis that take place during the months of September to April. Aside from this amazing phenomenon, many visitors come to Sisimuit to enjoy activities such as fishing, hiking, and dog sledding. 

Ilulisat
8/21/2020
8/21/2020

Ilulissat means icebergs in Greenlandic, and the town has a beautiful location at the mouth of an ice fjord that is filled with enormous icebergs, and is the most productive glacier in the northern hemisphere. North of Ilulissat lies the settlement of Oqaatsut/Rodebay, where some of the old buildings from colonial times are today restaurants or huts available for rent. Ilulissat is a modern town but is also know as the dogsled town for all its sleds and snow dogs, and visitors can share in the sledding fun.

Cambridge Bay
8/31/2020
8/31/2020

Cambridge Bay is located on the southeast coast of Victoria Island in the Region of Nunavut, Canada. The natives named the area Ikalultuutiak meaning “good fishing place.” The area has long been inhabited by Paleo-Eskimos who hunted caribou and seals in 1800 BCE. 500 years ago, the modern Inuit have populated present day Alaska.  In 1839 when the town was first visited by Europeans, the area has since been renamed honoring Prince Adolphus, Duke I of Cambridge. By the 1920’s trade became rampant and settlements slowly developed welcoming the Anglican & Roman Catholic missionaries that built schools and municipals soon after.



Visitors can enjoy the annual winter season outdoors hunting, dog sledding, camping and viewing wildlife. Visitors can fish the innumerable lakes and ponds, hike Ovayok Territorial Park or go birdwatching at Queen Maud’s Migratory Bird Sanctuary.
