Here you will find some practical information about how to dress in Greenland and our packing lists
Whether you are visiting Ilulissat in winter or in summer, we always recommend practical and insulating clothing after the layer-on-layer principle, the outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. As the weather in Greenland is very changeable with sometimes significant changes in temperature, it is a good idea to have a warm sweater and long underwear within reach, especially on our boat trips. We always recommend wool as the inner layer.
Correct footwear is essential on your journey to Greenland. In summer, you should bring waterproof shoes or hiking boots with good soles as roads, mountains and boat decks can be very slippery. In winter when it is cold in Greenland, down to minus 25-30 degrees, warm boots are very important. The sole should preferably be of pure rubber, plastic soles becomes very slippery at low temperatures. We recommend winter boots from Sorel or Baffin.
Also, always bring a daypack with bernie, gloves, neck gaiter, sunglasses and sunscreen (not water based). We also recommend that you bring a pair of binoculars and a camera to capture the wildlife.
