Flights to Greenland
Greenland, situated between the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, is an autonomous country and park of the Kingdom of Denmark. Although part of the continent of North America, the country is politically and culturally linked with Europe. Greenland is the largest continental island in the world and home to the world’s largest national park, the Northeast Greenland National Park.
Why Travel to Greenland
Despite its name evoking images of wild fields, lush meadows and pastoral landscapes, Greenland is actually a country with mostly icy surroundings and enjoys frigid cold weather thanks to its geographical location in the far North. However, Greenland does have some magnificent mountain scenery with gorgeous wildflowers spared from the ice frost. It can also boast of some amazing fjords and sheer cliffs.
For a break from the cold weather, head over to Uunartoq in Southern Greenland where you’ll find the only hot springs warm enough to bathe in. It is home to three naturally heated springs set against a backdrop of majestic mountain peaks and drifting icebergs. This is an activity you’ll definitely do not want to miss.
Another popular activity in Greenland is viewing the magnificent dancing northern lights of the Aurora Borealis. This natural phenomenon is an amazing experience where from early autumn, the night sky is illuminated with the green and purple glow of the northern lights. While this phenomenon occurs year round in Greenland, it cannot be seen during summer season due to the midnight sun. If you want to view the Aurora Borealis, visit Greenland during the months from September through early April when the nights are dark and clear.
Best Time to Visit Greenland
Before booking that flight ticket to Greenland, it is always good to know when the best time to travel is. Deciding on when would largely depend on what you want or plan to do while on holiday. Visiting during the summer season from June through August would give you bright, warm and long days due to the midnight sun. This season is good for outdoor activities such as hiking up the mountains or sailing on the fjords. Winter in Greenland, which is from December through March, is a good season for those wanting to go dogsledding or to experience the beauty of the northern lights. Both spring and autumn seasons in Greenland are quick and somewhat unpredictable. Summer in Greenland actually happens quickly where one day you can see the snow melting away and the next day you’ll find the nights brighter and nature begin to grow. Meanwhile in autumn, it is more unpredictable where you many experience all three seasons – from long bright days to beautiful autumn colours to skies dark enough for the northern lights.
