My fellow explorer and I had the best day we could imagine. We did the tour to Nuuk Icefjord, where we enroute saw jumping whales, it is truly amazing to cruise through the icy waters. Once we arrived we enjoyed a nice glass of whiskey with ice from the Narsap Sermia Glacier. CEO Anders Lykke Laursen and his guide provided the day with smiles and laughter, creating the best atmosphere onboard :)

We did a round tour of Nuuk fjord, where we first visited the Narsap Sermia glacier and Uummanaq island for whale watching. The last stop of the day was Qooqqut, where we did some fishing in the neighboring waters, and ended the day with a lovely dinner at Qooqqut Nuan. Nuuk Water Taxi fulfilled our day with the best service imaginable, providing smiles, laughter and an excellent cruise through Nuuk Fjord's waters!

We had an absolutely fantastic holiday in Narsaq and the surroundings! Our lovely tour guides Ulrikka and Hans from HKM Travel made really their utmost to make us feel comfortable and let us enjoy the beautiful nature, villages and people of South Greenland. An unforgettable 10+ holiday! Also a special thank for Iluuna from Guide to Greenland for good communication and patience for my endless questions. Thank you!

Tips for driving in Greenland

Given the small size of even the largest towns in Greenland, you’ll rarely have issues with traffic congestion or impatient drivers. Most drivers are very courteous, and if you avoid peak hour (which in Nuuk lasts about 15 minutes), you’ll find driving in Greenland stress-free.

The most important things to be conscious of if you are visiting during Winter, are the snow and ice conditions of the roads. However, cars are equipped with winter tyres, the roads are generally well cleared, and gravel or sand is regularly laid. This means that driving is safe so long as you maintain a speed that is appropriate to the conditions. If in doubt, take it slow, and pay attention if the car tells you it is slippery!

Keep an eye out for pedestrian crossings! These may be marked with lines on the road, but these are not visible when they are covered in snow. Pedestrian crossings are also signaled with a blue and white sign on either side of the road.

Give way to dog sleds. If you are above the Arctic Circle or in East Greenland during Winter, remember that dog sleds always have the right of way.

Rules and Regulations

The driving laws in Greenland may be different to those in your home country, so make sure you take the following on-board:

Drive on the right hand side of the road

The minimum age is 18 and a valid driver’s license is required. If your driver’s license is not written with the Latin alphabet, you need an international driver’s license.

In most towns, the speed limit is 40km/hr. If you are driving in Nuuk - there are some roads where the speed limit changes to 60km/hr. Keep an eye out for the changing speed limit signs as you run the risk of a fine if you exceed them.

For safety and legal reasons, drivers must keep headlights on at all times and all passengers must wear a seatbelt

As with everywhere else in the world, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and using a mobile phone while driving are forbidden. If you are seen by the police, you will be fined.

Enjoy your stay and drive with care.
