Travel to Greenland
Wouldn't you think Greenland is known for its green pastures? But most of the land is covered in ice and this island forms a spectacular setting for the winter's Northern Lights and the summer midnight sun. It has unspoilt wilderness, snowy mountains and glaciers and fjords. The icebergs are an incredible sight and can be up to 100 metres high. They are best seen in summer. Greenland has sea eagles, seals, whales, musk oxen and polar bears. Greenland’s wildlife is rich and extremely diverse. You will encounter it out in the wilderness and on guided safaris.
Greenland brings out the adventurer in everyone, here you can go sea kayaking, rock climbing and salmon fishing.

Travel Highlights Greenland
Today’s dog sledding is a mix of everyday transportation and expedition travel experience. The dog sled drivers are always locals with a distinct understanding of their natural environment and a deep connection with their dogs.
Northern lights are part of Greenland’s identity. Northern lights bring a sense of connection with forces much greater than humans when it covers entire towns under swirls of red, green, magenta and blue. The northern lights are best experienced between September and April, and especially deeper into the winter when the nights are longer.
ICE & SNOW
The fact that 85% of Greenland is covered by an ice cap has a profound impact on climate, culture, everyday lives, and travel experiences throughout the country. Take the world famous Ilulissat Icefjord as a core example of the importance of the ice. Icebergs are pushed right from the Greenland Ice Sheet into the waters of the Disko Bay, providing rich fishing grounds to sustain local communities and giving visitors unique access to a truly phenomenal natural environment. Or consider how sea ice creates winter highways for dog sleds, snowfall creates water reservoirs, meltwater lakes act as power resources, and glaciers carve out the mountain ranges you hike through or fly over.
The people are at the core of your experience in Greenland. You will meet them through cultural experiences and in everyday life in towns and villages. They are your local back country guides and boat skippers, hunters and dog sled drivers. Everywhere you go, the uniqueness of Greenland comes out through your meetings with the locals.
Whether it is by helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft, it is the ideal way to explore the largest island in the world.
Whale watching is possible pretty much everywhere in Greenland. The boats will take you out to the areas where the whales are usually spotted.
