Current travel opportunities to Greenland:

Between 1 January and 18 April, all entry to Greenland is closed, unless one is a critical worker and one’s travel is approved by the Corona Secretariat.

When Greenland opens again for travel, Greenland will likely follow the Kingdom of Denmark’s guidelines for incoming travel, with the following current status: - any person living outside Denmark, Greenland or the Faroe Islands must have a worthy purpose for travel in order to enter.

Covid-19 situation in Greenland:

In Greenland there are very few Covid-19 cases. In total, 30 persons were affected by Covid-19 in Greenland, and 30 of them have recovered (as of February 15, 2021). The reopening for entry to Greenland started with all due caution in order to keep Covid-19 infections as low as possible. 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 is usually a hospital in the towns and a nursing clinic in the settlements, and the national hospital in the capital Nuuk. Greenland has started vaccination against Covid-19 in early January 2021. It is expected that by end of June 2021, everyone was offered vaccination.

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.
