October 2018
Autumn is here - with red, brown and yellow colors in the mountains. Greenland will soon dress in white as the first snow usually falls during October.


Don't get lost

The daylight hours are decreasing rapidly, but the white snow somehow compensates, as the sunshine is reflected by the snow and therefore very powerful. During the dark hours northern lights are often seen across the sky. A dramatic scenery that leaves no one untouched.

While the number of holiday tourists lessens this time of the year, another type of visitors arrive. Greenland hosts a growing number of conferences and seminars, as companies and institutions abroad have begun to realize that they can add an extra dimension to important events this way.

Greenland's most exclusive conference center is Hotel Arctic in Ilulissat, located with a view to the Ilulissat Ice Fjord and rated the maximum five stars by the Danish association of hotels and restaurants.
Conference participants are often invited on helicopter tours to the ice cap or on dog-sledge rides.

In the capital of Nuuk, the self rule parliament will begin it's autumn session October 3, expected to conclude late November. The 31 members have legislative power over most areas of society while Greenland, as part of the Kingdom of Denmark, share foreign and defence policy, currency and legal system with Denmark.
In Ilulissat in the Disko Bay area the average temperature this month is - 2.7 degrees Celsius (27 degrees Fahrenheit).
