    Greenland

    Greenland, a massive island and autonomous Danish territory between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans, is about 80% covered in ice. Most of its small population lives along the icefree, fjordlined coast, particularly in the southwest. Its northerly position, largely above the Arctic Circle, results in natural phenomena such as summer s midnight sun and winter s Northern Lights.
