On your trip to Greenland, you will have ample opportunity to experience the scenic areas that are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The three selected areas have a unique nature and are steeped in culture and history, both from the Inuit and Norse cultures. Greenland is a world-class travel destination regardless of the season. There will always be exciting experiences to find.
UNESCO, the acronym for the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization, is responsible for making a list of areas worthy of protection throughout the world. The areas that will be included in the list must have a special and important nature, culture or historical value (or a mix of the three). The UNESCO World Heritage List represents areas of incredible universal value.
