Greenland weather

Greenland, the largest island in the world, is largely located in the Arctic, less than a fifth of the island is free of snow and ice.

Best time to visit Greenland

The most pleasant travel time is in summer from June to October, a good winter travel time is February to April. There is an arctic climate with low humidity, whereby it can even get up to 20 degrees warm in the southern parts in summer.

Language in Greenland

The official language is Greenlandic, an Inuit language. Danish is the first foreign language and English is the second. Much of the public life takes place in Danish, however, due to Greenland being an autonomous part of Denmark.

Eating and drinking in Greenland

Traditionally, in earlier times whales, seals and other fish were dried and preserved to prepare for winter. Even today, very unusual foods are consumed for Europeans, such as roasted birds, seals, reindeer, musk ox and lamb.

Whale meat is considered a delicacy here. There are a variety of restaurants serving Danish cuisine, with a wide variety of fish and seafood. Southern Greenland is known as “the pantry of Greenland”, here you can find sheep farms and vegetables are also grown here.

Greenlandic coffee is similar to Irish cofee, but it is a little less sweet, and locally brewed beer is popular in Greenland.

People of Greenland

“Kallalit Nunaat” - in Greenlandic language, means “the land of the people”. Greenland is an autonomous part of the Danish Kingdom, which is why you pay with Danish kroner here.

Only around 56,000 people live in Greenland, the largest island in the world. Greenlanders are only named those who are mainly native to the indigenous population and who speak a dialect of the Inuit language. Legally, however, every Danish citizen living in Greenland is also a Greenlander. Originally, the Greenland Inuit were fishermen, hunters and gatherers.

Fishing is still an important part of life today. Most of the population in Greenland is Protestant, the Catholic community has only 300 members. Greenlanders are very warm, friendly and tradition-conscious people.

Entry requirements for Greenland

To enter Greenland you need a passport that is valid for at least 6 months. EU citizens do not need a visa for a stay of up to 3 months.
