Qooroq Ice Fjord, Igaliku, Greenland Close in proximity, but worlds apart in every other aspect, Vikings sailed to these three island-nations. They lie 1150 miles apart and share the frigid waters of the North Atlantic above the 60 degrees latitude mark. Geographically though they have little in common.
