Sprawling over 2,166,086 square kilometers (836,330 square miles), Greenland is the largest island in the world. The vast majority of this sparsely populated and glaciated island is covered in a series of massive glaciers, which makes it perfect for all kinds of cross-country skiing expeditions. While few people opt to cross the interior of the continent, due to massive crevasses and a lack of viable support options, it is still possible for hardy explorers. However, most cross-country skiers will opt to head to the eastern or western coastline. Among the most popular options is to head to the Ammassalik region of Greenland and spend a week or two cross country skiing up through various Inuit villages. This region of southeast Greenland is quite remote and promises large stretches of uninterrupted countryside and plenty of great cross-country skiing terrain
