Visiting Greenland? You have found my personal notes and travel tips, such as the best time to visit Greenland and miscellaneous facts which I obtain from a variety of sources such as first hand observations, personal conversations, magazines, newspapers, websites, books and so forth.
Greenland is an autonomous country with strong connections to Denmark similar to the nearby Faroe Islands. Access to Greenland is generally via air from either Iceland or Denmark. Transportation within Iceland is generally via air or sea, with a lack of roadway infrastructure.
Best Time to Visit Greenland
Short Answer: March to November
Longer Answer: It really depends. If you want to see the Northern Lights, then avoid April to September. If you want to have maximum sun, then visit in April to September, with the constant sun (and “warmest” weather) in June and July. If you want to dog sled, visit November through March.
Generally, I’d shoot for November or March as you can see the Northern Lights & dog sled while still not being in so much darkness. If you just care about the Northern Lights, shoot for October and November. If you moreso care about the dog sledding, shoot for March into April.
You should be able to see icebergs any time of year.
