Tasiilaq, Greenland

It's said that Erik the Red gave Greenland its deceptively pleasant name to draw unwitting settlers to the snowy subcontinent. The Viking leader wasn't totally fibbing, though: Greenland can turn pretty darn green as aurora borealis gives the glaciers a glow-up.

This verdant display was captured in Tasiilaq, the largest settlement on the island's east coast. Though Tasiilaq is home to fewer than 2,000 people, it's one of Greenland's fastest-growing towns. Plus, regular plane hops from Reykjavik, Iceland—about 500 miles east—add the occasional cold-tolerant tourist to the population.

格陵兰塔西拉克

据说红色埃里克给格陵兰取了一个貌似很好的名字,以吸引不知情的定居者来到这个多的次大陆。尽管如此,维京人的领袖并不是完全在撒谎:当北极光使冰川时,格陵兰可以变成非常糟糕的绿色。

这张翠绿的照片是在塔西拉克拍摄的,塔西拉克是该岛东海岸最大的定居点。虽然塔西拉克的人口不到2000人,但它是格陵兰发展最快的城镇之一。此外,从冰岛雷克雅未克向东约500英里的地方定期乘坐飞机,也为当地居民增加了偶尔的耐寒游客。
