The right clothing is an essential prerequisite for getting the most out of your journey. Our destinations are ideal for active holidays in nature, all year round. We have many years of experience with what is right to bring on a trip to the Arctic.

Informal Dress Code, Using the Layer Principle

In general, the dress code in Greenland is casual and practical. At restaurants, you are equally welcome in jeans and a sweater as in a jacket and tie.

Regardless of the season, dressing according to the layer principle is recommended, where the outer layer should be water and windproof. In summer, both shorts and short-sleeved t-shirts can be comfortable. However, you should always remember to keep a sweater and long pants ready as the weather can change quite suddenly.

Clothing Can be Both Smart and Practical

If you have any questions about apparel or you need to buy new ones, we recommend that you contact your local sporting goods store. Here you can get advice and guidance. These stores usually have a large selection of smart and practical clothing that can be used all year round – both as everyday wear and when traveling.
