Things to do in Greenland

Travellers are guaranteed not to run out of things to do in Greenland, in no matter what season they visit.

The largest non-continental island in the world, Greenland is also one of the most sparsely populated, consisting of vast swaths of breath-taking wilderness mixed with a glacial coverage of around 84% of the island’s total landmass. With very few roads, transport is generally via small boat or helicopter, with flights offering the chance to glimpse the island’s stunning topography of magnificent mountain-scapes, glaciers and spectacular fjords.

Alternatively, cruise along the western coastline aboard the Sarfaq Ittuk, the only coastal ferry in Greenland. Meet local people travelling on board and watch the landscape change from green hills to steep granite peaks as you cruise under the midnight sun. It is possible to visit Greenland during the winter to go in search of the northern lights, and also in the summer when more of this remarkable and wild island becomes accessible.
