Travelling on your own in Greenland

What does it mean to be an independent traveller in Greenland?

Travelling Independently (without a tour guide)

Some are not keen to travel in a group and others like to explore on their own.
It does not take much to travel on your own in a country like Greenland. The traffic network is quite good, considering the remoteness and terrain.
Many things are written in Greenlandic, Danish and English.
Most people working in tourism in Greenland speak some English.

If you’ve made your Greenland booking through us, we typically create a ready-made or tailor made trip for you.
For everything included in your booking with us, you’ll receive a ticket or voucher.
On the voucher there will be contact information for the supplier who provides the individual elements (flights, transfers, accommodation, excursions, boat trips etc.)

Our expectations of an Independent Traveller:

We allow ourselves to expect a bit from you as an independent traveller (without a tour guide).
You must be at the forefront of what the next move is (based on your itinerary).
If the flight is delayed, check if you’ve been re-booked on a later date / time, and please inform the accommodation that you’ll be late.
It is not always a matter of course that the hotel will be aware of delays.

If you have a planned excursion, you should also call the supplier and ask for it to be re-booked.
If your trip has become unmanageable due to delays, call Topas Travel on +45 8689 3622.

If it’s outside office opening hours you’ll be informed about our emergency phone number.
We request that you understand that the emergency phone is ONLY for genuine emergency situations.
