Greenland is an isolated and remote place.
From the capital of Iceland, it is a tiny nation on the border between North America and Europe.
There, the weather is cold, snowy, and snowy.
The mountains are vast, but the ocean is just a short drive away.
But the country has been hit hard by climate change.
Its glaciers are retreating, and sea levels are rising.
As a result, Greenlanders have seen their population decrease from about 500,000 to fewer than 200,000.
As the temperature continues to climb, it could see a major shift.
But before the islanders head back to their home, they must head north, past a handful of islands and into the Arctic Ocean.
A cruise ship will be waiting to take them to the frigid north, where they can relax and catch a few days of sunshine.
For the people of Greenland, it’s not so easy.
The islanders have been fighting climate change for years, and in 2017, the country’s government announced that it was shutting down.
That meant the only way to get to the north was through the ice.
To get there, the crew will need to make an unplanned stop on the Greenlandic coast.
The passengers will need a guide to the islands and to a boat to sail north.
They will have to take on some tough decisions about where to camp, what food to eat, and where to sleep.
The trip is the perfect opportunity for a group of travelers to learn more about the world they live in.
And for those who have already taken the plunge, the journey will be a great reminder of why they left home.
For most, the trip to Greenland will be the first time they have gone beyond the Arctic.
But some of those who’ve been there will tell you they’ve never been to Greenland.
And they’ll be glad they have.
This week, we’re bringing you the story of two people who made the trip.
One of them, Kristina Aro, has been a resident of Greenland since the late 1980s.
She’s a teacher, writer, and journalist, and her passion is exploring how the climate change crisis affects the Arctic’s people.
She is the author of the book, Greenland: The Ice and the Sea: The Politics of Resilience and the Struggle for Survival.
For Kristina, the first leg of the journey was a little more difficult than expected.
But that’s why she is so excited to share her story.
She and her husband, Høyland, have been visiting Greenland for over 30 years.
They’ve spent hundreds of hours in the Arctic, with icebreakers and other equipment, and they’ve been photographing Greenland’s wildlife and fishing.
Kristina and Høytland are part of the Greenland Polar Expedition, a joint project of NASA, the Norwegian Polar Institute, and the Danish Department of Science and Technology.
Kristine and Hoya have been the first people to go out in the frigids, and this year, they were part of a team that helped scientists figure out what climate change was doing to the polar ice sheet.
As Kristina explained to us, it was difficult to know how far away the ice was from the mainland, but when they were finally in the polar regions, the ice sheets were disappearing.
“It’s been hard to get out there in the cold and cold weather, because there are no icebreakers or boats to move them,” Kristina said.
“And we’re trying to figure out how to navigate between the ice and the sea, because it’s so cold.”
Kristina told us that she was concerned about getting caught in a storm.
She said that she had to use the icebreaker for a while to make it across the ice sheet, and she and Hoyland have been trying to make sure they don’t get caught in another storm.
Kristi also told us about how her husband had to stay with her when she went to Greenland to collect photos of polar bears.
He and Kristina were trying to document polar bears as part of an ongoing project.
It was a long and difficult journey, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience for Kristi and Hoys.
She told us how she felt a little different when she finally reached the polar islands.
“The trip was really exciting, but also kind of scary,” she said.
Kristin told us what it was like to be there when she was just a child.
“I remember being so happy to be able to go back and see it,” she recalled.
“We were in the middle of a lake, and there was a small lake, but there were lots of icebreakers there.
We were in a lot of trouble and everything was so calm.”
Kristi’s father, Hoya, was also there, along with Kristi, Kristi said.
He had to sleep in a tent in the
