anyone know if i will be able to pick some up in Kangerlussuaq when i come to walk the ACT in September?
Hello, I am visiting Nuuk for the first time next week for two days. I won't be leaving the city. I was wondering if anyone had any advice with regards to clothing? Should I take a big heavy arctic coat and waterproof walking boots? Or do the locals move around fine with a normal jacket and shoes? Thanks!
Can you go dog sledding in Uummannaq?
is nuuk the capitol?
do people up in greenland celebrate "Return of the Sun"?
how do sled dogs act around other people besides their owners?
I will be flying into Kangerlussuaq on the 30th Aug and ive never been here before, I need to know what clothing to bring ? I will be working their for 13 days so any help be great thanks
I have been told by the tourist office that there are two places suitable for camping but am unsure exactly where they are. Do you have any in formation or suggestions please?
how long roundtrip to hike Little Marlene. Where does the trail start and is it well marked?
Are their taxis to get from the cruise dock to airport and how far and how much? Is there anything to see in Kangerlussuaq?
How long does it take to walk from the cruise port to the old part of the city?
I am planning a trip to greenland, can anyone recommend a good guide book?
I have tried in vain to get the lonely planet greenland and arctic guidebook published in 2005, but they are too expensive second hand.
Perhaps someone can recommend an alternative, or maybe has a copy of the LP guide they would be willing to sell?
Thanks in advance for your help,
I will spend about 30 hours in Kulusuk (from 10am to 4pm next day) on the 30th of August. Do you think I should take the helicopter to Tasiilaq and spend the time there instead? Thanks!
I am helping a friend with pre production for a video project that will be taking place in Kulusuk in early August. I am wondering if someone can tell me where she might be able to purchase a local cell phone to make local calls with? I imagine one might be available for purchase at a local post office but would love to confirm this and or/hear of other suggestions.
I am trying to help a US friend with getting a place to rent in Nuuk. He will be there for 4 months and will also be working.
How do I contact the local job center ?
Where can one find rental properties for about 4 months ?
thanks Everybody for your assistance.
Sorry,this is a repeat, I posted it in another forum by mistake.
Cruising to Nuuk and Nanortalik, GreenlandPosted: Mon May 2, 2011 09:00 PM EDT Hi,
My friends and I will be cruising to these 2 cities at the beginning of September. As you can imagine, I have a lot of questions as to what to expect. I am very excited about visiting Greenland, so any info about either of these ports would be greatly appreciated.
We will be spending 9AM to 6PM in Nuuk. Any suggestions as to how to get around, and if there are other interesting things to see out of the city. Can you get private tours with a taxi or van? How about shopping? And what special things should I look for to purchase (I love to shop on my vacations to find special items that represent the country i am visiting.)
We will be visiting Nanortalik from 7AM to 4PM. I understand that there are no tours available from our ship and that the towns people present programs for the visitors. Once again, is there something I should see outside of the city that I would be able to get to easily. I love to look at scenery and special points of interest.
Any information or help that you could give me I would truly appreciate. I know weather is unpredictable, but should I bring a winter jacket and gloves?
Thanks-you so much. Linda

What to do in Aasiaat? Is it better to stay on in Qeqertarsuaq, or Ilulissat?
Will be spending one day in Qaqortog in August on a cruise. Can we see the town by walking? If we want to take the boat trip, will we be able to get it the day we arrive or should we try to reserve before we get there? The cruise line does not offer any tours so everyone who wants to go ashore will arrive at the same time. Thanks for any help you might offer. :)
I will be in Ilulissat 3 days in July and just need to know in I should already book tours to Eqi, a midnight boat, etc... or I can do it when I arrive?
they always tell me that maybe in the summer there are all going to be over booking and they cant prommise me i can book.
if you also can advise me how to plain 3 days over there I'll be thankfull

I am new in here and plan to be in Greenland in the summer
please help me plan a 5 days trip - where to stay and where to travel (and how to travel - boat, walk, helicopter....)
how much should it cost to me?
I am in the very early stages of planning an around the world trip. I would love to make a stop in both Greenland and Iceland if possible but I don't know much about where to fly from/which cities to visit etc. From my understanding it is possible to fly to Iceland from Canada but not Greenland? I'm just wondering if anyone has insights on the cheapest way to get to these countries? Thanks!
What is the price of a helicopter tour of the ice sheet from Nuuk?
I'm off to Greenland (Kulusuk) in 2 weeks and I have a few questions:
--Can I use Euros, or do I definitely have to change to Danish kroner?
--What type of clothes should I take with me? Will it be extremely cold, or more like north Europe in the winter?
Does anybody knows which is the cheappest way to fly to Greenland from Europe?. I can only find one company (Air Greenland) flying there. Thank you very much in advance
I like to have a visit to Greenland in the near future. I started looking around, what's the best way to experience this beautiful part of the eart. What are must do's? The country is so big, so you have to make discissions about an active walking or a more sightseeing trip. Or am I wrong?
What is the most beautiful part of Greenland, and maybe more important, where do you really get the Greenland experience (for a reasonable price, because it will be expensive anyway)?. I know it's subjective, but I am grateful to any advice. Iam not interested in high comfort trips, but I guess there won't be a lot.

I am searching a boat transfer this summer from Kangerlussuag 60km down the Söndre Strömfjord.
Do you know any companies/private persons who provide that? I already tried Kangerlussuag Tourism but they say they can't help me.
Thanks and best regards,
