Northern Lights in Greenland
As the days went by, my Greenlandic experience kept on going. Days went into nights and nights went into days. Finally, I was told that tonight might be the night we could see the unique Northern Lights. I was beyond excited, and it definitely seemed like this was something that would bring the local Greenlanders to the streets as well.
As the night fell, every person in our village – young as well as old – were ere on the streets to watch the lights dance in the night sky. The Northern Lights reached down from space filling up the night with a sense of magic.
I stayed up all night to watch the Northern Lights. This phenomenon is Greenland’s way of adding an extra bonus to the winter world. This might be one of my top three memories from all trips I have ever been on. Absolutely stunning!
The world of Greenland is amazing and it’s a time I won’t ever forget. If you have a travel bucket list, I’d recommend you put the world’s largest island on your list.
