The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to Greenland:

Greenland (Greenlandic: Kalaallit Nunaat) is an autonomous Nordic nation that is a constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark.[1] Greenland comprises the Island of Greenland and adjacent islands located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Though physiographically and ethnically an Arctic island nation associated with the continent of North America, politically and historically Greenland is associated with Europe, specifically Iceland, Norway, and Denmark. In 1978, Denmark granted home rule to Greenland, making it an equal member of the Danish Realm. Greenland is, by area, the world's largest island which is not a continent in its own right.[2]
