Travelling in Greenland
To travel in Greenland can be a bit complicated. Within the villages there are cars and a bus and in summertime some take their bikes. Most people walk. Because of the landscape you cannot travel by car or by train between villages, you have to travel by boat or helicopter to go to the nearest town or airport. In longer distances there are domestic flights. Flight to and from Greenland, from Denmark and Iceland, schedules only 2-3 times pr week, depending on summer /winter season . Depending on weather conditions flights may be cancelled within short notice. Check the www.airgreenland.com for flights and prices.

For shorter trips in the closer surroundings there are possibilities to go by helicopter or to go by boat. Helicopter is of course more expensive. Boats with driver can be rented, often there is a fixed price and sometimes price is negotiable. You can for example get to the ice-cap with the boating company Blue-Ice. You can find information through Tourist Information in Qaqortoq: www.greenland.com/en/destinations/south-greenland/qaqortoq/
