Landscapes of Greenland during Summer

Greenland Travel Guide

Travelling to Greenland

  • How many days do you need in Greenland?

    Greenland is only serviced by two international airlines and you can only reach the territory from either Iceland or Denmark. Since getting there is a little tricky, you may as well stay at least a week to make the most of it! Our adventures in Greenland are between 8 and 10 days. 
  • Is Greenland expensive?

    In a word...yes. Accommodation, food and transport in Greenland can be very expensive indeed. Joining a group tour with all your accommodation and meals included is the most cost effective way to experience Greenland. 
  • Is Greenland dangerous?

    Greenland is about as safe as a destination can be. The crime rate is extremely low and the chances of you experiencing any kind of petty theft are very slim. 
  • Do they speak English in Greenland?

    The official languages of Greenland are Greenlandic and Danish but English is also widely spoken. 
  • When is the best time to visit Greenland?

    The summer months of July and August are the best times to visit Greenland. At this time the weather is at its best and there are more flight options available. 

Kayaking in Greenland

  • Can you go Kayaking in Greenland?

    Yes! During the summer months kayaking is probably the best way to explore Greenland. With all of your camping gear and food stored in the kayak, you can paddle past icebergs and whales as you reach otherwise inaccessible locations and wild camp in spectacular wilderness. 
  • Is a kayak easier to flip than a canoe?

    The two man sea kayaks we provide for our clients are extremely stable and difficult to flip over. Although some previous kayaking experience would be an advantage, your guide will provide you with all the training you need. Even if you have never paddled a boat before, you will be gliding through the water in no time. 
  • What is the best time to Kayak in Greenland?

    Kayaking in Greenland is a summertime activity. We run most of our kayaking trips in July and August when the weather is a little warmer and conditions are at their best. 
  • Can you get trapped under a kayak?

    The two person sea kayaks we provide on our trips are very stable and the chances of you flipping over are slim. In the highly unlikely event that you did flip over, it is very easy to slide your legs out of the boat and let your self float up to the surface.  We provide only the highest quality safety equipment that includes dry suits and buoyancy aids to keep you 100% safe at all times.
