Greenland is part of North America with just 50,000 inhabitants and located in the kingdom of Denmark. Greenland is remarkably beautiful with both snow and ice landscapes. Known by National Geographic as the “ground zero” of global warming, you can run into some pretty drastic temperature changes while visiting. With varying activities to do in Greenland, such as watching the Northern Lights, diving, snowboarding, sitting in some natural hot springs, and taking a cruise; the latter is probably best option, but make sure to find yourself a good cruise deal. This passport stamp will be one you can surely brag over. With very few visitors each year, you will be able to get several “cool points” when you mentioned you have made it over. When landing in Greenland, you will get a stamp with the city you have arrived in, as well as the date. Some Greenland passport stamps will be embossed with the Danish crown as well. The easiest way to travel to Greenland is by taking an Air Iceland flight from Reykjavik, Iceland, to Kulusuk, Greenland. The trip will take around two hours.
