West Greenland

December 19, 2017 | Shauna Cook

I was so excited to visit West Greenland.  I departed Copenhagen airport, and flew with Air Greenland to Kangerlussaq, Greenland.  Kanglerlussaq is a nice little village in the heart of Western Greenland.  It has a well-equipped international airport as it was formally a US Airbase.  For the larger planes arriving from Denmark, this is the only place in Greenland they are able to land.  Once we arrived in Kangerlussuaq, we had about 3 hours to wait until our next flight north to Ilullisat left.  There is not much in the way of airport security if you are travelling domestically in Greenland – nothing at all in fact!  We went outside and did a little walking tour of the area including some really unique gift shops and the local police station.  When it was time to meet our flight, we made our way back into the airport and readied ourselves for our flight north!  Read More >
