You have every right to ask, “Is Iceland colder than Greenland?” due to the names. Well, with the ice cap in its centre you would expect Greenland to be colder. Iceland has the Gulf Stream moderating its climate and Icelandic Mountain Guides explain how it does this in detail.
But, Greenland can surprise you too! During the summertime, Greenland does have its own rendition of Arctic summer, complete with the midnight sun and refreshingly mild temperatures.
You might even say that it can get warm since many people strip into shorts and t-shirts when the sun is shining – but you are always encouraged to bring layers wherever you are!
It is valuable to know that the air is generally dry in Greenland, and because of this low humidity the same low temperatures may feel warmer compared to other countries, even Iceland!
