Greenland is the world’s largest island, located between Canada and Iceland, bordering the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. The majority of its residents are Inuit, with ancestry tracing back to the Canadian mainland. The total population is just 55,000 in various small towns around the coast, none of them connected by road. Three-quarters of Greenland is covered by the only permanent ice sheet outside Antarctica. Greenland is famous for its glaciers and icebergs, which are produced all year but especially in summer, and vary greatly in size, shape and colour. One of the best sites for icebergs, located on the west coast of Greenland, 250 km north of the Arctic Circle, Ilulissat Icefjord is the sea mouth of Sermeq Kujalleq, one of the fastest and most active glaciers in the world and a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.
