Greenland, for three reasons.

1. It is a country, that I can add to my list of countries.

2. I can go where I please on my own and explore and look around. In Antarctica, I'd be in lockdown, in the confines of whatever organization hosted me, and at their mercy to go anywhere.

3. Greenland has an indigenous population and a historic culture.

Greenland, no contest. For reasons #2 and #3 given above.

I choose Greenland. Prettier , less cold, inhabited, closer to the rest of the world.

Greenland. Not as extreme with weather so people can actually live there. Antarctica would be like being on another planet.

My heart says Antarctica, because penguins, but my head says Greenland, because people.

So, as cool as it'd be to hang out with penguins and the bragging rights of having gone to the most remote and arbitrary place one could travel to, I'd still have to take Greenland.

I would pick Greenland. There are people in Greenland(at least a more permanent population).

There are year-round research stations in Antarctica. I'll bet the skiing there is better, too. Taller mountains.
