Read up on practical information about travelling to Iceland and Greenland, to make your trip as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Travelling to another country can be exiting and great adventure, but it can also be a good idea to study the country and see in what manner it differs from where you live, e.g. did you know that in Iceland we follow GMT but do not adjust to daylight saving time? Did you know that in Iceland our pets don't have rabbies nor do we have mosquitos? So, you can't bring your pet along to Iceland, unless you're willing to put it in four weeks quarantine.

The remote location and island status of Greenland means that virtually all items must be imported; hence, even everyday items cost more than they do in Iceland or Denmark (which Greenland is a part of) or are simply sold out during your stay. Accommodations tend to be small in size, due to high cost of importing building materials. Repairs might also take a while, due to spare parts or tools being imported.
Please keep in mind that the Greenlandic travel infrastructure is not comparable with Western standards and service is often more relaxed then you will find elsewhere. Most towns and villages have limited resources of planes, boats, helicopters and guides, so even with the best preparation possible, unexpected events can change your travel plans, such as flights not being on time, sudden weather changes or last-minute cancellations of other participants, leading to a specific tour not reaching the minimum.
