I'm planning to go to Iceland this summer. Since I've never been so close to Greenland before (except on a plane), I'm thinking about going to Greenland too. Is there any ferry or plane that goes from Iceland to Greenland? If yes, how much time will this need? How much does it cost?
According to the official Greenland tourism site there are two places you can use as your source. Rejkjavik and Copenhagen. There are 2 airlines servicing the island: Air Iceland and Air Greenland. The price Air Iceland is currently quoting for destinations in Greenland is 161 EUR (Kulusuk) and 193 EUR (Nuuk). I guess the further north the more expensive it gets since you will probably need a helicopter ride.
Could not find the ferries but there are cruises from Europe that will take you around Northern sites including Greenland.
There are multiple sites referring to that but they may be exactly the same cruise:
For flights, you can arrive from three countries:
- From Iceland, through Air Iceland and Air Greenland
- From Copenhagen, Denmark, with Air Greenland.
- from Iqaluit, Canada with Air Nunavut.
By boat to/from Nuuk (the capital): - Arctic Umiaq Line has a passenger terminal to Maniitsoq-Sisimiut-Aasiaat-Uummannaq and Paamiut-Qaqortoq-Narsaq-Narsarsuaq.
- Royal Arctic Line and Blue Water are cargo-boat companies operating out of Nuuk.
