Need to know
What to bring for summer in Greenland?
Greenland in the summer is mosquito season! Our special brand of mosquitos are particularly resilient and are often not bothered by repellent, so it’s best to bring a headnet as well as repellent, to minimise disturbance.
What are the best places to visit in the summer?
Where to go in Greenland depends a lot on what you want to do. Take a look at our first-timers page to get some direction in planning your trip.
Are there any special holidays or events in the summer?
An important summer date is the 21st of June – Greenland’s National Day! This day is a celebration of national identity – the whole country takes the day off and celebrations permeate every town and settlement. It’s a great day to be a visitor – but be prepared for some shops to be closed, especially the smaller ones.
I still have more questions!
Of course you do – that’s totally normal. For answers to more general questions, or for more inspiration, head over to our first-timers page or our frequently asked questions page. If you know where you want to go or what you want to do, head to destinations or things to do, and get planning. See you in the summer!
