One of the major differences between Spitsbergen and Greenland is the amount of vegetation. Well, the comparison isn’t really fair as Spitsbergen is around 78ºN, while the part of Greenland that I visited was around 70ºN (the same latitude as the northern parts of Scandinavia). Most of the flowers that we see are the same as the ones on Spitsbergen, but just a lot bigger. The “trees” grow a lot bigger and also the other plants grow taller. Some of the plants are new, like this Broad-leaved Fireweed. Its bright pink flowers give a nice colour to the tundra, together with the orange and reds of the willows and birches that already had their autumn colours.
