Getting to Greenland

Two airlines are operating on Greenland the stat airline Air Greenland and the Icelandic airline Air Iceland. Air Greenland is internationally connected to Copenhagen via Kangerslussuaq airport that is a transit for all the smaller airfields dispersed around the coastline of Greenland. Air Iceland offers a connection between Iceland and Ilulissat.

It may look a bit counter intuitive that you have to fly to Greenland all the way from Denmark and there isn’t a north American connection but it has its historic reasons as Greenland had and still have strong ties with Denmark and Iceland was also a part of Denmark until the second world war.

This summer air Greenland will try to run an air route between Iqaluit, Canada and Nuuk Greenland but I did try to look at the prices and they a stupendously high so if they are trying to see if there is an interest in flying between Greenland and Canada and there is they are just not understanding it is less expensive to fly over Copenhagen if you are not living in the Greenlandic capital Nuuk.

- Greenland
Winter highways

During the long winters in Greenland the transport routes change drastically due to the roads made by the snow scooters compression of the otherwise loos powder snow that comes from the very low temperatures Greenland is accustomed to.

This enables you to take longer hikes around the landscape without skis or snowshoes.
