The polar bear is the largest terrestrial predator in Greenland. Their incredible size and behavior have given them a reputation for being dangerous, which is fully understandable. Polar bears are predators and, like other bears, you do not want to get too close to them. Everyone has great respect for them, especially in areas in Greenland where there is a risk of encountering a one.
Many people probably think that the polar bear is widespread in Greenland, but they live primarily in the northern part of the country. However, you can sometimes experience them further to the south, where they may have been taken on an ice floe, which is broken off from the ice in the Arctic Ocean. As the polar bear usually lives in North and East Greenland, where not many people live, most Greenlanders have never seen one with their own eyes.
