Greenland Holidays

An island of vast proportions, Greenland is dominated by the world’s second largest icecap. Only a narrow coastal fringe of rugged mountains and intensely green valleys, remain ice free allowing a small and resilient community to live at the edge of the habitable world.

Our collection of Greenland holidays let you explore this largely untouched land by boat, on foot or on an independent break, ideal as an extension to an Iceland holiday. Based on first-hand experience, our itineraries have been designed to give a real taste of this epic and remote country.

We will always offer the best price available at the time of booking and guarantee no surcharges - see our 100% Guarantee for full details.

About Greenland

Greenland is the world’s largest island extending way into the Arctic Circle spanning the equivalent distance of Scotland to the Sahara.

Greenlanders number around 57,500 and are a mix of native Inuit (Eskimo) and Europeans, principally of Danish descent. 90% live in scattered settlements along the west coast from the stunning Disko Bay area to the rural communities, such as Narsarsuaq, in the south. In contrast, the east is virtually uninhabited outside of the Ammassalik area. Traditionally a small-scale hunting and fishing society, East Greenland in particular still retains its old-world charm, barely touched by western influences.

During the fleeting summer, the pack ice breaks up and giant icebergs drift through the fjords, migratory birds arrive to breed and hardy Arctic flora bloom. Summer also brings 24-hour daylight and north of the Arctic Circle, the midnight sun.

Our flexible itineraries give you the option to explore the largely untouched and rugged coastline on a voyage, hike through wide open vistas and valleys of flora on a walking holiday, travel through the frozen wilderness on a husky sledge or experience the magnificent scenery on a choice of daily excursions on an independent break.

THINGS TO DO

Around many of Greenland’s towns, there are well-trodden hiking routes of varying difficulty, ideal for the independent traveller and which can be completed within two or three hours depending on your pace and how often you stop to admire the views. In most areas of the country you do not need to walk far to reach wide open spaces and experience total silence.  Alternatively, a guided hike, boat, 4WD or helicopter excursion take you through the stunning glacial landscape and provide the opportunity to learn about the flora and fauna, as well as local history and geology.
