Greenland’s nature is magnificent, yet rugged. There is hardly any place on earth where the forces of nature and life’s adaptation to a strict climate appear more contrasting and diverse than in Greenland.

Greenland’s society is in a rapid development, and the country faces special challenges with e.g. significant consequences of global warming. Increased international interest in the country’s resources and geopolitical significance, as well as increasing tourism, contribute to the fact that knowledge and dissemination about Greenland is in high demand.

Nature Guide Greenland is aimed at all nature and travel enthusiasts who have a love for Greenland. With this book in hand, you are well equipped to explore Greenland’s beautiful and magnificient nature. The book, which is richly illustrated with 540 colour photos and 18 detailed maps, is the most comprehensive guide published to date about Greenland.
