Most people get to Greenland from Copenhagen. Flights often depart in the morning. That’s why, staying here overnight is a necessity. And that’s great!

To get to Greenland, you usually would go via Copenhagen. Air Greenland’s direct flight to Kangerlussuaq (Søndre Strømfjord) departs here. That gives you a chance to discover some of the many Greenland-related places in Copenhagen.
