The winter in Greenland is something special. The best time for winter adventures in Greenland is from February to May (see the tours here: http://goo.gl/n0waqS). The sun stands high in the sky again and is reflected in the vast snow-covered landscape. Feel the sun, the crisp air and the crackling snow under the dog sled or while cross country skiing or snowshoeing in the impressive Greenlandic backcountry. Watch the northern lights dance on the dark sky full of stars or take a moment to enjoy the impressive view over the fjords from one of the remote mountain peaks you climb while ski touring. No matter which winter adventure you choose, you will have the pleasure of meeting a warm and welcoming population.

Greenland rolling, sculling rolls
The Maewan project is a four-year, multi-stage, voyage around the world. It's a floating base camp for mountain climbing, free-skiing, and technical climbing projects. Erwan Le Lann, Skipper of the Maewan, is the father of this wild, multi-disciplinary adventure to explore the seven seas. Together with his team and his boat The Maewan they are circumnavigating the globe in search of untouched lines. This movie tells the story of the first part of their adventure, between Iceland and Greenland, with a crew composed of an expert sailor, a freeride skier, a mountaineer, and a cameraman. They navigate along Greenland’s coast: scouting for opportunities to ski, climb, or simply to explore. **** Original Soundtrack **** Get the full soundtrack of the Maewan's project on: https://soundcloud.com...

The sport of kayaking has its roots in the skills that Inuit people needed to hunt and survive in Arctic waters. In 2014, Canadians James Roberts and James Manke went to learn more about the Greenlandic people and Qajaq culture, and to participate in the legendary Greenland National Qajaq Championships. In this short film, they share their experiences with the games and with the people whose ancestors kayaked for survival, and who continue this competition to preserve those traditional skills. http://hayfiremedia.com/ http://www.ontarioseakayakcentre.com/ Directed by: David Hartman & James Roberts Written by: David Hartman & James Roberts
* The matches for 5-6 and 7-8 places were not broadcasted and that's why video of goals is absent
In March 2016, Greenland's capital Nuuk will host the next Arctic Winter Games. This event is a big deal for the nordic country, especially since accessibility to physical activity is limited for the population. The geographic location of Greenland poses challenging conditions to football players for example, since the permafrost makes it impossible to grow grass on the fields. Furthermore, the distances between the local sports clubs and the lack of roads makes it very difficult for competitive teams to play against each other. To the analyst Trygve Laub Asserhøj, there is a lot to do to provide access to sport facilities all year around in Greenland. Municipalities and sports clubs should focus on solutions to make it easier for the population to take part in physical activities, instead...
There can be few places in the world where it's more difficult to play football than Greenland. Arctic weather and vast distances between teams means just getting to a game, can be quite a challenge. But the national side still has ambitions to one day win full FIFA membership, as Paul Rhys reports.

On Friday, the Faroe Islands beat Greenland 8-6 in the first of three friendly futsal internationals. The half-time score was 1-0 to the Faroes, but in the second half the floodgates opened at both ends, but where the Faroes had the upper hand throughout the match. Brian Jacobsen (Skála) scored three goals for the Faroe Islands, Alex dos Santos (HB Tórshavn) and Alex Troleis (B68 Toftir) two each, while Hanus Jacobsen (Víkingur) scored one. Match number two will be played on Saturday evening and match number three on Sunday. We'll post both of those results on this page (under the November update even if the month will have changed to December on Sunday). All three matches are played in Greenland's capital Nuuk.
Greenland have selected two different teams for the futsal series against the Faroes; a B-team which lost 8-6 on Friday and an A-team, which seemed to be much stronger and won 6-2 in Saturday's match. Greenland said already after the first game that they had spotted some weaknesses in the Faroese team and that they had found out how to exploit especially the weaknesses of the Faroese goalkeeper. With their A-team in action on Saturday, Greenland proved their predictions right. Although the Faroe Islands went two goals up through Alex José dos Santos and Hanus Jacobsen, and were leading 2-1 at half-time, they were overpowered by Greenland in the second half and beaten 6-2.
