Nature is king.

So before venturing out in the wonderful wilderness you better plan your trip very well. For shorter and longer trips a look at the weather forecast is a good idea. Even if the weather forecasts are getting more and more reliable for longer trips always be precocious and inform someone where you are planning to go and when you will be back.

No barking allowed!

When you are going north of the polar circle you will not hear any barking as Greenland has a none tolerance policy relating to pet dogs for the purpose of keeping their breed of sledge dogs pure and strong as they have to be to live outdoors all year in the artic climate. The sledge dogs are so closely related to wolfs, that they also cannot bark and just howl. On that note cute as they may look you have to be very careful around the sledge dogs as they are not bread to be pets but pull animals for the dog sledges.

Mosquitos and flies

In the summertime you will be well warned about the insects that spring out of the millions of little water holes you find anywhere near the coastline in Greenland. So a good mosquito repellant and a net to your hat would be good to pack for your journey.

Cold weather and windchill factor

Come no big surprise visiting Greenland in the wintertime is will be cold, but how cold will it be?

It can get real ***ing freezing cold minus 30-40 degrees this does sometimes not fell that bad as the air is often dry and it makes it fell warmer then the actual temperature. But come some wind and you have to venture outdoors you really have to take some care not to get hurt. It will be your face that is mostly exposed so a trick is to use a fat facial cream (70% and up) this will insulate you a bit. A other thing you can do is to have a jacket or hut that slows down the windspeed around your face. The coyote-skin provide this on the canada goose jackets that have this for an example.

And don't try to play superman … you will get frostbites if you don't take care! I got some frostbites just going on a short tour shopping.
