Greenland is an exotic and extremely beautiful destination which has been the target for many historic expeditions – and it still is. Its vast and remote areas attract explorers and scientists from all over the world and, even close to its towns and settlements, you often get the feeling that you’re the first person to set foot in that particular place.

It is easy to go on a tour to Greenland with a little planning

Greenland is a faraway destination to most people but Greenlanders. However, that should not deter you from seeking a trip to this magnificent destination. First of all, even if Greenland is far from other countries, it is pretty easy to get there with a little planning.

 

You need a connecting flight to Greenland

Unless you live in Denmark or Iceland, you need a connection from your home destination to one of the two Airports from which you can fly directly to Greenland. You need to get to Reykjavik or Keflavik in Iceland or Copenhagen in Denmark before you can board a plane to Greenland.

 

Stayover in Copenhagen or Reykjavik

In general, we recommend that you plan for a stayover both in the beginning and at the end of your travel to Greenland. Sometimes you will need a stayover in Copenhagen or Reykjavik. Both cities are wonderful places to visit, and it will give you a relaxed and unstressful holiday not having to bother about delays. Greenland is an arctic destination and even though most flights depart on time delays do occur especially when going from Greenland. So you need to plan for delays on your return journey or have an insurance that covers delays if you miss your connecting flight.
