Driving in Greenland

As there is no roads between cities driving in Greenland is quiet easy. The roads are not the best, and can change a lot depending on both your destination and weather condition. In wintertime there is usually a lot of snow, that set a natural limit to the speed you want to drive. Here is some useful information if you're planning on driving during your stay.
