The world's largest non-continental island, Greenland is closer to North America geographically, but is considered part of Europe in a political sense. Despite having a great deal of autonomy, Greenland is a territory of Denmark. Danish, alongside local Greenlandic, is the most widely spoken language.
Because it is such a remote place, visitors expecting to find recognizable elements of Scandinavian culture might be disappointed. Still, most restaurants serve European-style fare, and many of the buildings carry a distinctive Scandinavian design. This vast island is mostly a frontier, with almost unlimited opportunities for adventure and exploration through miles and miles of completely unpopulated land.
