Greenland is a beautiful part of the world that many people would love to visit. It’s so easy to get there too! All you need is a plane ticket and your passport. Not sure what to do when you arrive? We have some tips for you in this blog post!
- The first thing you should do when you land in Greenland is to head over to the airport. You’ll need your passport and your boarding card, as well as a government-issued photo ID with an expiration date. They will also want to see any other paperwork from countries outside of Denmark that you may have visited within the last three months. Fill out a customs declaration form and head to the baggage claim area!
- The second thing you should do when you land in Greenland is rent a car. You’ll be able to drive around on your own, which can be really fun if it’s been a while since you’ve driven yourself somewhere new or just for leisure. Driving on the left side of the road is a good chance to get some practice, too.
- The third thing you should do when you land in Greenland is head over to one of the museums that are near Kangerlussuaq Airport. The Culture House offers art galleries and exhibitions from all around Greenland as well as films, concerts, dance performances, and poetry readings. The Greenland National Museum is also nearby; it offers a lot of information about life in the country, including pre-colonial times all the way up to modern-day Greenland. Make sure you make time for both!
- The last thing you should do when you land in Greenland is getting some sleep! You’ll need your energy to explore.
A few other tips: Greenland is in the arctic, so it might be cool while you’re there! Bring a sweater and some layers with you to stay warm. You’ll also want to look out for icebergs- this place has one of the world’s largest populations of them. And don’t forget your camera!
