Greenland Travel Guide

Despite its massive size, only 20 percent of Greenland is hospitable, the rest covered in glacial ice. The lush greens of the plants strike a bold contrast with the glaciated mountaintops, making this an intriguing Arctic destination. Your Greenland cruise might feature:
  • Aurora Borealis: Known also as "the Northern Lights," you'll have a front row seat to this natural marvel, as the neon rainbow dances across the Arctic sky.
  • Whale watching: The majestic humpback and Greenland whales can be seen breaching here in these icy waters.
  • Sailing past icebergs bigger than houses along the Coast of South Greenland.
  • Trekking across glaciers that have helped form the country or exploring the Polar seas by Zodiacs  around the world's biggest fjord system in Scoresbysund.
  • A visit to some of the most secluded parts of the northern hemisphere and expeditions to traditional fishing villages.
  • A cruise through the legendary Northwest Passage.
  • Discovery of the ancient ways of the Vikings, who made Greenland their base, just like you will.

Greenland Travel FAQs & Tips

Do I need a visa to travel to Greenland?
A visa is not required if you are traveling from the United States & Canada, most countries in Europe, or Australia & New Zealand. Travelers from South Africa do need to have a visa in advance. Check with your country's state department if you have doubts about travel requirements.

Is tipping customary in Greenland?
Tipping is not customary in Greenland, but you should expect to see a service charge included on the bill. If you do experience great service, tips are definitely appreciated, but not expected.

What is the internet access like in Greenland?
Surprisingly, Greenland has very dependable high speed internet and WiFi hotspots. If you are staying at a lodge on Greenland, you will likely have access from your room; if you are traveling on a cruise, you can always ask us if your ship is equipped with internet access.

Can I use my cell phone while in Greenland?
If you have a phone with a SIM chip, then the easiest and cheapest way to get mobile phone service is by purchasing a local chip from TeleGreenland. The alternative would be to activate global roaming, in which case you will still have fair 3G coverage and signal in the villages and towns, but your rates will probably be very high since Greenland is so isolated from the rest of civilization. 

Do I need a power adapter/ converter?
Greenland runs on 220-240V power and has Type K Danish outlets and ocassionally Type C Europlug outlets. Having an adapter for both of these is crucial, but you will also need a step-down converter if you have any appliances that can only accept a 110V power source (many small North American devices).

What are the toilets like in Greenland?
Cruise ships and the main cities, towns, and villages you will visit have modern, flushing toilets. 
 
Approximately what will it cost for (in USD):
Train ticket- $3.00
Beer- $11.00
Bottle of water - $1.50
Simple lunch - $17.00
Dinner at a restaurant - $45.00

Can I drink the water in Greenland?
Seldom will you find cleaner water than in Greenland. Whether it's tap water or glacier water, it's all safe to drink. But it's best to stick to the tap water!

What is the most common way of paying for things in Greenland?
In the bigger towns and settlements, it's not hard to find an ATM or a business that accepts credit cards, however they sometimes close as early as 6pm and there are many businesses that do not accept credit cards, especially in the more remote areas. You should always have some spare cash on hand just in case. 

Should I purchase travel insurance for my trip?
We always encourage travelers to purchase insurance just in the case of any eventuality. Check out the Once You're Booked page for more info.
