Greenland Warnings and Dangers: 15 reviews and 16 photos
Polar bears can be a major problem where they occur, but on Greenland’s west coast there is an area between Nanortalik in the south and north of Disko at about Upernavik where there rarely are any at all. This is mainly for climatic reasons: the polar bear is an expert seal hunter, and seals occur in suitable masses in the pack and drift ice. Sea currents take the ice southwards on the east coast, but on the west coast there is a largely icefree area in the areas mentioned - lack of drift ice, and therefore very few seals.
Outside these areas, though, you will need to be aware of the presence of polar bears. Dogs can keep polar bears away when they are properly trained.
