Lofoten is an archipelago at the end of the northern hemisphere, where the rock formations rise as if it were a natural wall, or worse, a wall.
Each island usually has its pointed beak, so that the whole is known as the wall of Lofoten. In addition, the curiosity of geography adds a notable exception.
The archipelago is located north of the Arctic Circle, and winter should be most extreme. However, Lofoten does not freeze. Its location makes the climate in the largest anomaly in terms of temperatures on the planet.
Almost no one thinks of Greenland as a travel destination in itself. Some of the people of Greenland are almost always one step destination, perhaps on a cruise to the Arctic. This is one of the most desolate places on the planet where landmarks such as Ilulissat can be seen. The site is also a place where sits a picturesque village 200 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle inhabited by only over 4,000 people and where ice giants seem to stalk meters from the houses.
Ilulissat is a place in the middle of nowhere, and yet not without its attractions, as the native home of Knud Rasmussen museum, the Ilulissat fjord , is declared as a World Heritage Site, with some abandoned settlements in the vicinity, and of course, the landscapes that might as well fall under the category “probably-never-see-anything-like-it”.
South of the city is the Ilulissat fjord, a World Heritage Site since 2004. The ice fjord more than 40 kilometers long and 40 kilometers wide, clears tons of icebergs and ice chips every day, emerging to the open sea and beginning a journey of months until completely melted. It’s considered a great show in the area.
