Greenland Independent Holidays

With both multi-centre and single base options, these itineraries are aimed at those who enjoy the freedom of exploring independently with the convenience of pre-arranged accommodation and transportation.

Flights to Greenland are via Reykjavik in Iceland and once on the island modes of transport include boat, helicopter, jeep, dogsled and snowmobile. With plenty of scope to add in activities you can set the pace of your holiday doing as many or as few as you want.

Explore independently around many of the towns on well-trodden hiking routes of varying difficulty, which can be completed within two or three hours. Alternatively, try a guided hike or opt for an excursion by boat, 4WD or helicopter. Excursions are best booked locally due to minimum numbers and varying weather conditions.

On these land-based holidays not only will you see awe-inspiring scenery and natural wonders but you’ll also witness the unique bond between the Inuit and their polar home. The Inuit still use traditional hunting, fishing and carving methods and the island is scattered with communities where you can gain an insight into this way of life. Excursion options may include village walks and visits to remote hunter settlements.

All accommodation on your independent itinerary will be pre-booked for you. More often than not the hotels boast incredible views over ice-filled fjords and mountains and have a restaurant and bar or lounge. So with transport and accommodation pre-arranged you can relax and soak up the natural grandeur of this truly incredible island at your own pace.
