Tourism in Greenland is largely undeveloped, with most tourist activities arranged on a local level. The country has spectacular scenery, and a few historic sites.
The main tourist activities on offer are ice cap treks, wildlife spotting (including whale watching), iceberg watching, and hiking trips to the mainly Norse ruins.
Visit Greenland 
Visit Greenland is the Greenland Self-Rule Government agency responsible for tourism and business development in Greenland. The head office is in Nuuk Greenland. There is a subsidiary office in Copenhagen Denmark.
Visit Greenland was established in 1992. Its original goal was to develop a sustainable tourism industry and market Greenland as a tourism destination. The role was subsequently expanded to include the development of industry and small businesses in Greenland. Visit Greenland in Nuuk focuses on facilitation and the Copenhagen office focuses on marketing.
Greenland Self-Rule Government 
In 2002 Greenland (then "Home Rule Government" now "Self-Rule Government") established five focus regions for the development of the tourism industry in Greenland. "Destination North Greenland" centered around Disko Bay, "Destination Arctic Circle" centered around Kangerlussuaq, "Destination Capital Region" centered around the capital Nuuk, "Destination South Greenland" centered around Qaqortoq, and "Destination East Greenland" in East Greenland with Tasiilaq as the main hub.
The most popular tourist destination is Ilulissat Icefjord, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
