Luggage and bags: Drybag for maps and valuables

Miscellaneous: Hiking maps are indispensable on Greenland. There is a series of maps called "Hiking Map .. (region)" published by greenland Tourism. They pretty much cover what you want to see and where you want to walk on Greenland, bu the scale is a bit too big at times. The maps are strong and well updated, however, somebody told me the glaciers have changed quite a bit since the map was made and uncovered new lakes and other hinderances.
In additions to this map series in 1:100 000, 1:75 000 and orienteering and recreational maps for the settlements, I know of a guide book that comes with a map of the hiking areas south of Ilulissat Kangerlua.
The maps you can buy in dedicated map shops (order: Greenland Tourism or Compukort, Kaerlodden 2, DK- Maarslet, Denmark), climbing shops as South Greenland is a climber's paradise, or at the airport and tourist offices on arrival Greenland. Skandinavisk Korthandel in Copenhagen had the full set..
