Located just northeast of the North American continent, Greenland is the world’s largest island and also home to the second largest ice sheet on Earth (after Antarctica). Composed of massive fjords, a 2,000-metre (6,600-foot) high glacier and various mountain ranges, the Danish autonomous territory boasts plenty of incredible treks and climbs for experienced outdoor adventurers.
Famous Mountains in Greenland
The Greenland Icecap sits over the centre of Greenland and is ringed by several mountain ranges. That makes the centre of the massive island the most popular place for climbing and trekking expeditions.
Crossing the ice cap and venturing onto the ice cap to make smaller circuits during the short summer is a particularly popular option, with many adventurers opting to spend two weeks exploring the massive ice sheet.
