July 2018
July is often the best of the summer months in Greenland. The sun shines for 24 hours in most of the country, the snow and the sea ice has melted, it's green in the valleys and on the hillsides. Huge icebergs drift along the coasts and whales are often seen very close to the shore.

Travellers arrive on guided tours or on their own. Groups travel from town to town, backpackers hike through the breathtaking scenaries for weeks, mountainclimbers head for the ultimate challenges in the very south and the east, while anglers tend to prefer the streams on the west coast.
Cruising along the coasts is becoming increasingly popular. A growing number of international cruise ships call ports along the coast, while the ordinary passenger ships have attracted visitors to Greenland for years. Cruise ships call ports in Grenland from both Europe and North America.
Travel agencies and local tourist offices are ready with advice for your visit.
