Visiting Greenland with a skippered sailing holiday
A majestic northern landscape for an unusual experience full of adventure - navigate the Inuit-populated coastline north of the Arctic Circle.
Why a sailing holiday in Greenland is so special
Said to be discovered in 982 AD by the Norwegian castaway, Erik the Red. His sons continued westward and arrived at Terranova and St Lawrence's Fog Bay in Canada, arriving in America five centuries before Columbus. Cruise into the midnight sun on your sailing holiday in Greenland. In summer the light is permanent and in winter the long polar nights offer the magnificent spectacle of the Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights), with its veils of extraordinary colors.
A sailing holiday with a skipper in Greenland also offers the privilege of seeing the beautiful wildlife of the Arctic, including: reindeer, caribou, seals, walruses, and whales! Find your out of the ordinary adventure holiday. Once you drop anchor and make your way to a coastal town the iniuit culture awaits you.
The best time to travel to Greenland & transport options
We suggest you go visit between June and August, this is the high season of the area, and the most popular time for skippers to be listing experiences. The Arctic is a region where you may find some special expedition style experiences, in recent years skippers have offered sailing expeditions venturing from Iceland to Greendland as well as trips around Alaska.
Unless you are setting sail on an expedition style sailing holiday that involves reaching Greenland by sailboat, you will need to fly to the main airport of Narsarsuaq, located in South Greenland. There are a number of flight connections from Reykjavik in Iceland and Copenhagen in Denmark.
