About the Greenland- East Itinerary
East Greenland is one of the most isolated regions in the world. Along the more than 20.000 kilometres of coastline you’ll only encounter two towns and 5 small settlements, inhabited by no more than 3,500 people. There is a natural reason for this very sparse settlement: East Greenland is situated between the polar sea ice and the Greenlandic Icecap, and is only accessible with supply ships either 2 or 6 months a year depending on location. An awesome wilderness of more than 1,457,000 km², including the world's largest national park. (www.eastgreenland.com)
