Travel Guide: Greenland
Greenland is a unique travel destination that offers an unforgettable experience for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. With its rugged terrain, stunning glaciers, and pristine wilderness, Greenland offers a rare opportunity to escape and immerse oneself in the beauty of nature. In this guide, we will provide you with useful information about how to get to Greenland, what to expect, local cuisine, and our brand new tours.
Getting to Greenland
Firstly, it’s important to remember that Greenland is a vast and remote destination, and visitors should be prepared for a long journey to reach their destination. The easiest way to reach Greenland is via Denmark, with flights departing from Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq, the only airport in Greenland where larger planes can land. From there, visitors will need to take a smaller propeller plane to their final destination. Waiting times at the airport can be lengthy, so it’s worth considering booking an excursion or exploring the airport’s restaurant to make the most of the time.
Local Cuisine & Culture
Greenland offers a unique culinary experience with a focus on seafood, fish, and local meat. Visitors can try different delicacies throughout their stay, and everything is tasty. Some must-try dishes include fish soup, smoked fish, and musk ox.
In terms of accommodation, while the hotel standard in Greenland is good, visitors should not expect luxury accommodations. Visitors to Greenland come to experience its natural beauty and unique culture, and accommodations reflect this. However, visitors will find that the accommodations are comfortable and well-equipped, with all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay.
Wind & Weather
Visitors to Greenland should also be prepared for the weather, which can be unpredictable and harsh. Programs and excursions may need to be adjusted or cancelled due to weather conditions, so visitors should be flexible and prepared to adapt to changing circumstances. It’s worth packing appropriate clothing for the weather, including waterproof and windproof outer layers, warm layers, and sturdy footwear. In the summer months, visitors can experience the midnight sun, where the sun doesn’t set for weeks at a time.
