Frequently Asked Questions

About Day Tours in Summer

1. Is it cold in the summer?

It depends on where you go, but summer temperature are often between 10 - 15°C (50 - 60°F). It can get a little colder up north. In Kangerlussuaq, Nuuk and South Greenland, warm days reach over 20°C (70°F).

2. What should I bring for a summer trip?

Dress in layers so that you can adjust to the weather, and always have a windproof jacket with you. It’s good to have gloves, a warm hat and a neck warmer, but you will also need a cap and sunglasses to shield the sun. If you are going on a boat tour, remember to dress warmly.

Don't forget your camera, and bring a pair of binoculars if you have one - it makes a big difference in your experience. Insect repellent and a mosquito net to cover your head - nets can be bought in major towns around Greenland. You might want to bring an eye cover if you don’t sleep well when it’s light. Remember that the nights don’t get dark up north!

3. When and where can I see the midnight sun?

The sun does not go down in the summer above the Arctic Circle. Sisimiut and the hub airport Kangerlussuaq, are just above the Arctic Circle. As you go further north, the period of the midnight sun gets longer, so in the northernmost town the sun is up in the sky for 4 months. But even in southern Greenland, it does not get dark at midnight, because the sun is close to the horizon.

4. What kind of tours do you recommend?

The most popular tours are boat tours to see icebergs or glaciers. Ice cap tours are also a very special experience. There is a wide variety of outdoor experiences, from short hikes and kayak experiences, to extensive multi-days treks into the wilderness. A guided tour around town gives you a lot of insight into the history and culture of the area.

5. I like to travel on my own, and usually don't join guided tours. Is there something special about it in Greenland?

We love that way of thinking, and hope you have a great time up here. If a tour can add to your experience, it could be that when you spend some hours with a local guide, you get to know more deeply about the place - the history and culture, or the guide’s way of life.

One thing that not easy to do on your own is to go on a boat trip. Every single Greenlandic town and settlement is by the sea. Going out to the fiords with a local will give you a glimpse of what Greenlanders really enjoy in their life. The rhythm of the tide, catching fish for dinner, a glimpse of the round head of a seal, birds nesting on cliffs, and perhaps a local’s summer tent in the middle of nowhere.
