The silver lining to President Trump’s delusions of purchasing Greenland is that all of a sudden everyone wishes to go to. After Trump’s dream of buying the world’s largest island, which is emphatically not for sale, made headlines, everybody began looking up the finest way to check out the self-governing Danish territory in the Arctic before a Trump Tower was constructed there and ruined the place.
Two experience travel groups, Intrepid Travel and G Experiences, reported that interest in their Greenland trip plans jumped more than 200%this week. Furthermore, Skift reports that Visit Greenland, the federal government’s tourism arm, saw a tenfold spike in traffic to its website as individuals fantasize of sailing through the icebergs of Scoresbysund and looking for the Northern Lights in Ittoqqortoormiit.
While Greenland may not have been gotten ready for its moment in the spotlight, it is making great usage of it. Go to Greenland had been wishing to break the evasive North American tourist market, according to a rep who spoke with Skift, and all the unasked-for publicity generated by Trump’s dream deferred and subsequent choice to cancel a prepared trip to Denmark could be the trick. After all, Greenland is firmly in the American discourse now, and Americans may be questioning what Greenland has to use that Trump wants so really severely.
According to Visit Greenland, visitors would be in for an icy world filled with hot springs, treking, cross-country snowboarding, and other Arctic adventures, in addition to Arctic gastronomy, an icy wonderland filled with stunning natural scenery, friendly people, and a culture that goes far back in history. That’s what Trump had an interest in, right? While the president might be requiring the U.S. economy to the edge of an economic crisis, at least he’s assisting Greenland’s tourism industry boom.
