Covid-19 situation in Greenland:

68% of the population in Greenland is fully vaccinated. Currently there are no people in hospital, 21 people have died of Covid-19. The reopening for entry to Greenland started with all due caution in summer 2021. Since then it is possible to enter Greenland if you are fully vaccinated. Greenland as the world's largest island with about 85% of its territory covered by ice only has a tiny population of around 56.000 inhabitants who need to be protected. They are living in small towns and settlements far away from each other. There usually is a hospital in the towns and a nursing clinic in the settlements, and the national hospital in the capital Nuuk.

Traveling in Greenland during the Covid-19 pandemic:

Travellers that visit Greenland are characterised by their love of nature and the great outdoors. They want to experience the vastness of the country most commonly on an individual basis. 90 percent of Greenland Tours’ adventurers are travelling the country individually, meaning as singles, couples, family or small groups of friends, the remaining 10 percent travel in small organised hiking groups. Responsible and considerate travel has always been important to us and our adventurers. We are therefore providing detailed information on all measures taken by the Greenlandic government to continue to protect both locals and travellers.
