Greenland is covered about 90% with glacier and all those trips I have gone to US and have visability the scenery is fantastic, would also love stepping down there myself one day.

There was an Icelander that gave Greenland the name and it is still a mystery how on earth he could name the country by the few green spots you can see and the feckin Norwegian who named Iceland by one of few glaciers we have, funny story though.

Actually it was called GREEN land on purpose - to persuade settlers to move there - bet they had a shock!!!! No refund from the travel agents in those days!!!
