SUMMER IN GREENLAND
Our summer is short, sunny and full of experiences. During the summer months, the temperature is pleasant and the sun is in the sky 24 hours a day. You can explore historic sites, enjoy the wonderful midnight sun and even see the impressive whales!
You must visit Greenland during this time if you fancy unique experiences on the sea, land, in the nearby settlements and discover the wonderful surroundings of Greenland’s fjords. It is easy to explore and you don’t need special Arctic skills to take a trip with us!
Throughout the summer, Greenland Fiord Tours offers experiences in the Arctic nature, taking you to the best areas rich in wildlife. During this time the city is buzzing with life and great mood. The children have summer holidays, and many locals use the good weather to go on boat trips to the fjords. It is a good opportunity to go on short and long sailings trips.
It is important to mention that you are not the only one who visits the Greenland fjords in the summer, the whales also visit the fjord at this time of year! So if you visit us, you have a great chance to get close to the large marine mammals. You will be so impressed by their size and you will never forget this amazing experience.
The sun is standing in the sky, both, day and night, but you still need to bring warm clothes and a good winter jacket as it gets cold when we are on the water. Since the temperature can change depending on where we are, we recommend to dress in layers, this way you can take them on and off during the trip. (The temperature in summer can be between 3 and 10 degrees Celsius in the shade.) It may sound like a cold summer experience, but the air is dry and there are many hours of sunshine, so it will feel warmer than the thermometer shows.

Remember, you will have a better experience if you have proper clothes and shoes that you feel comfortable in.
