Yves Angst

I booked a wild camping tour with Exped Tribe and it was worth every penny. The team knows what they are doing and organized the tour very well. The camping was not only uniquely beautiful in the wild nature, but also very informative regarding useful camping knowledge and what to look out for. Thank you very much again.

Guided hiking trip to Greenland’s fjords organized by Arctic Hiking and Expeditions, was a beautiful and immersive experience in Greenland’s untouched wilderness. The choice of trails allowed us to witness the diversity of Greenland’s terrain, despite the remoteness of the locations, the logistical and safety arrangements were seamless. The itinerary allowed for a balance of challenging hikes and leisurely strolls, catering to both seasoned hikers and those seeking a more relaxed pace. If you’re seeking a journey that transcends the ordinary and connects you with nature, this trip is an absolute must.

Frequently asked questions about Greenland tours

  • Here is a season-by-season breakdown of the best months to visit Greenland!

    • Spring (April & May)

    Spring is a shoulder season in Greenland, with fewer crowds and more affordable prices.

    The weather is starting to warm up, and the days are getting longer. This is a great time for dog sledding and other snow-based activities, as the snow conditions are usually excellent. You may also be able to see the Northern Lights during this time.

    • Summer (June through August)

    The most popular time to travel to Greenland, with long days (including the midnight sun!), comfortable temperatures, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, and boat tours

    Whale watching is also excellent during this time, as humpback whales migrate to the waters around Greenland. However, mosquitoes can be a nuisance in July and August, so be sure to pack accordingly.

    • Fall (September & October)

    Autumn is a beautiful time for a Greenland vacation. The weather is still relatively mild, but the days are getting shorter. This is a good time for hiking and sightseeing, as there are fewer crowds than in the summer. However, some Greenland holiday packages may start to wind down for the season.

    • Winter (November through March)

    Winter in Greenland is a harsh and unforgiving time, with very cold temperatures and short days. However, this is the best time to see the Northern Lights, which are often visible on clear nights.

    Winter is also a good time for dog sledding and other snow-based activities. However, many tours and facilities are closed during the winter, so it is important to plan your trip carefully.

  • The number of days you need to dedicate to Greenland really depends on what you want to see and do.

    If you want to get a taste of the landscapes and see a few of the highlights, you could do it in as few as 5-7 days. This would allow time to visit the capital, Nuuk, and even take a boat tour to see the glaciers.

    If you want to do some more in-depth exploring, such as hiking or kayaking, you’ll need to allow more time. A 10-14 day trip would give you a chance to experience some of Greenland’s outdoor adventures.

    And if you’re really looking to get off the beaten path and experience the true wilderness, including serious Arctic expeditions you could spend weeks or even months exploring Greenland!

  • Adventure tours are the best way to experience everything Greenland has to offer.

    Greenland offers a variety of adventure tours, such as hiking, kayaking, and backcountry skiing. These tours will take you to some of the most remote and beautiful parts of the country and provide a less touristy, more authentic experience.

  • Greenland isn’t the most budget-friendly destination. Remote location & a limited infrastructure all contribute to higher costs. Compared to other European countries, it sits around the upper 25% in terms of travel expenses.

    However, choosing guided trips to Greenland might be a good option, especially if you go in the shoulder seasons. A good & knowledgeable guide will help you avoid unwanted expenses and plan your trip efficiently.

  • There are no direct flights to Greenland from most major cities around the world. However, you can get to Greenland with connecting flights through Iceland or Denmark.

    Keflavik International Airport near Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF) is a major hub for flights to Greenland. Several airlines offer connecting flights from North American and European cities to Keflavik, with onward connections to Greenland’s capital, Nuuk (GOH), Ilulissat (JAV), and other Greenlandic destinations.

    Copenhagen Airport (CPH) in Denmark is another option for reaching Greenland. While selection is more limited than through Iceland, some airlines offer connecting flights from various locations to Copenhagen Airport, for onward travel to Nuuk (GOH).

    You can also take a cruise there, or if you’re traveling in a large group or on a private expedition, you may be able to charter a flight directly to Greenland.
