Cruise along the coast of Greenland

By Verified Expert

Why go on a cruise along the coast of Greenland?

Cruise ship docking in Greenland

Tourism in Greenland is increasing. People are traveling far to see our beautiful country.

Greenland is huge, and no roads connecting the towns and the villages. So to go from place to another you need to go by airplane or ship.

By going on a ship you get to see many places which you would just have flown over if you went by plane. 

Pathway on a cruise ship

I have met many tourists who actually decided to visit Greenland to experience the silence.

Lots of square meters per capita

Our country is the biggest island in the world with its 2,166,086 km2 (836,330 sq mi) and still, we are only 56.000 inhabitants.

So we have lots of space and surrounded by pure nature. 

Clinking cups of tea and the icefjord

Imagen to be able to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee among icebergs, while whale watching in the huge nature.

The feeling of fresh cool air and the midnight sun, that gives you the opportunity to stay out all night if you like. 

Guide explaining

All the cruise ships have guides that can tell you all about the places you are visiting and sailing through.

It is not just facts but also private stories which makes it more interesting than reading your guidebook 😉

You never know when the whales are around, so even a day at sea it can be a very exciting day when the whales start to blow air and showing tails close to the ship.

Special the humpbacks are seen very often because they are more curious than scared.

Pack for cold and sunny weather

So if you are visiting Greenland remember to pack your warm clothes so you can stay out and enjoy the sceneries.

Also pack your sunglasses and sunscreen, because the sun is shining 24/7 during summer, and your binoculars and camera for the bird and whale watching!
