Us

Greenland Outdoors is founded on the love and admiration for our Greenlandic nature, history and wildlife. Our aim on all tours is to give the visitor a glimpse of the beauty of our land, the exciting wildlife and the amazing history of the cultures that with great effort stretched the boundaries of where mankind was able to survive. One of our main objectives is also to fuel the simple and logical idea, that tourism in Greenland should be run by Greenlandic companies. We believe that this not only ensures that our local community gets the most out of tourism but also gives greater value to anyone visiting our amazing country - to go on tours planned and explored by its own people. We hope that you will find Your Arctic Adventure with us and we look forward to welcoming you here in Greenland.
