Greenland Flights GuideGreenland is a huge Danish territory that is largely covered in ice, and the world's largest non-continental island. It is situated between the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, where beautiful icebergs and glaciers abound in coldly beautiful winter colors. Most of the country's population lives in the largely ice-free southwest characterized by its beautiful fjords. For travelers willing to brace the cold, the northernmost part of the country is where some of the most awe-inspiring natural phenomena such as summer's midnight sun and winter's northern lights can be seen, and whale watching is also a popular attraction. The country also boasts diverse wildlife in an incredibly extreme and rugged landscape--seals, polar bears, and reindeer.
The country's capital is Nuuk, and a popular stop-off for a day trip for travelers flying from nearby Iceland. That said, budgeting should be done carefully here, as flights within the country are extremely expensive and the only other way to navigate the country is by boat. International travelers determined to fly directly into the country should plan to fly into Kangerlussuaq Airport, which services more airports. Prepare for a harsh Arctic climate; visitors in the summer months can expect temperatures to average 50 F/10 C, and in the winter months these numbers plummet to -4 F/-20 C.
