In some cities and towns you walk around, in others they offer rides in cars or on buses, and in most towns throughout the country historical walks, town highlights, visits with local families, museum exhibitions, everyday street life are central local tour elements.
And if more serious hiking and a trip outside the limits appeals to you, then we have hills and mountains in abundance. After some huffing, puffing and sweating going up a mountainside, you will most likely end up agreeing with your guide that the view from the top is second-to-none and well worth the effort.
GUIDED TOURS BY AIR AND SEA
From a mountain top you will most certainly see fjords and the sea, and local boat owners offer a number of ways to experience Greenland from the water once you are back at sea level.
Whale watching is a popular experience, with humpback whales as the most frequent guests near a boat, and your guide usually knows about hot spots for finding whales. But boat tours are also a great way to access the vast backcountry neighboring every town in the country.
With no roads linking up any of our cities or towns, the waters along our shorelines are our highways, and for centuries this is how people travelled in order to get from one place to another.
With a place as big as Greenland there is really no better substitute for a full perspective than flightseeing in either helicopters or small fixed wing planes with pilots who know every valley and peak in the area.
To hover right over mountain peaks, to dive down through valleys and fjords, flying over glaciers and along the rim of the mighty Greenland Ice Sheet, and to even spot herds of musk oxen in a few select locations, is a worthy way to experience Greenland.
