Kangerlussuaq served as a midway point for military personnel and airplanes as crossing the Atlantic in one flight wasn’t viable at the time. As time passed and the necessity for a midway point became less and less needed, the Americans eventually sold the airport to Greenland for 1 dkk, as long as they always had a right to land at the airport. This suddenly gave Greenland an international airport, and an extensive roadway system, unlike anywhere else in Greenland. This, as well as its incredible weather stability and numerous wildlife,  has made Kangerlussuaq a hub for tourists, researchers, and adventurers.In just 2 hours we’ll show you all the interesting sights, where you’ll learn about the Greenlandic culture and their ability to adapt to life in the Arctic.
