Greenland

Interesting facts
The name Greenland means "Land of People."

Almost 80 percent of the land mass is covered by an ice cap and glaciers. Though a minority of land, the ice-free area is nearly as large as Sweden.

The Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the biggest glacier outside of Antarctica.

Greenland has a population of roughly 57,000, about 15,000 of whom live in the capital Nuuk.

Sealing, whaling, hunting and fishing are the primary sources of income for inhabitants in Greenland. In recent years, the country's tourism industry has been expanding as well.

Scientists have estimated that the Greenland ice sheet is between 400,000 and 800,000 years old.

Greenland was a Danish colony until 1953, when it became a country. It attained home rule in 1979 and began full self-government in 1981. The government is a constitutional monarchy, with a 31-member unicameral parliament called Landsting and a premier. The country sends two representatives to the Danish Folketing. The nominal head of state is the Danish monarch.

There are a number of hot springs that attract visitors throughout the year to their balmy temperatures averaging between 98 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The largest town in southern Greenland is Qaqortoq, which has been occupied for about 4,300 years. Stop by the Qaqortoq museum for a glimpse back in time with an art collection from the Dorset, Thule and Norse cultures.

The Hvalsey Church, which was the first Christian church on the continent, is one of best preserved Norse ruins.
