Icebergs in Disko Bay, Greenland, as seen from aboard a ship. The Disko Bay area was the place where Vikings living in Greenland came on summer hunting trips to hunt narwhals, walrus and even polar bears for ivory and skins - valuable Arctic commodities. Norse Vikings were present in Greenland in two settlements - the Eastern and the Western Settlement - between c. 985-1450 CE.
