25 Pictures To Make You Put Greenland At The Top of Your Bucket List

I know I have said it before, but I am going to say it again now, and most definitely again in the future. I am head over heels in love with Greenland! I just visited this incredible country for the second time, and found that I loved it even more than I had the first […]

Snowmobiling Around Mountainous Sisimiut

I will admit, I was hesitant to go snowmobiling. As it happens, I am a seriously terrible driver, have no valid drivers licence (let alone an international one) and no winter sports cover on my travel insurance, so to go ahead and snowmobile anyway was not exactly a wise idea. In countries where tourism is […]

Packing List: Winter In The Arctic

MERINO WOOL THERMALS I have travelled in cold climates before. Winter in Europe – no problem. Autumn in the Arctic – not an issue. Until my most recent trip to Greenland, I had never once really needed my thermals. In Kangerlussuaq, the mercury plunged down to unbelievably cold temperatures (-41 centigrade on the coldest day) […]

Icebergs and Auroras in Ilulissat

After spending two days on complete bedrest following a rather nasty accident, I was not exactly a happy chicken.

Banged Up Abroad: Injured in Ilulissat

Well bloody hell, I’ve now had one travel experience that I won’t be in a rush to repeat.

My left knee was slightly […]

Dog Sledding in Stunning Sisimiut

I landed into Sisimiut from Kangerlussuaq with high hopes and a lot of anticipation. Luckily, Sisimiut is one of those places that lives up to the hype. Located on the west coast of Greenland and home to approximately 5000 people, Sisimiut is the second largest town in all of Greenland. However, despite it being more […]

Ilulissat: The Ultimate City Guide

Given that this ‘city’ is much more of a small town, Ilulissat is the sort of place which you could go your entire life without hearing about. While this is completely understandable, it is also a little bit of a travesty. The third largest town in Greenland may only be home to around 3500 people, […]

Packing List: Autumn In The Arctic

Ah, the eternal struggle. Upcoming trip on the horizon but what the heck do I absolutely need to pack and what can I leave strewn across my floor to be picked up upon return? I tend to over pack – worrying that anything I leave behind will somehow become a totally crucial item, and not […]

A Short Guide to Greenland Travel

Greenland is one of those countries where tourism isn’t yet huge. Many people aren’t aware of all that Greenland has to offer, and many of those who want to explore the final frontier of travel are put off by the cost of flights to this icy wonderland. Greenland travel isn’t always easy, but it is […]

Exploring Oqaatsut Part II

Not long after abandoning the guided tour of the remote Greenlandic settlement of Oqaatsut to say hello to a trio of gorgeous husky puppies, I was discovered by my new friend Shachaf. Soon after more and more puppies arrived to say hello! If you have been following this blog for more than a few weeks […]
