Greenland Travel GuideWhen to visit Greenland
Greenland is an artic destination with different things to do during different times. In particular, spring is a good time to experience the northern lights, dog sledding, and skiing, while summer is best for hiking, sailing, and whale-watching. The most popular time to visit is mid-May through mid-September, when the snow has melted and the sun is out for long periods. November through February is the coldest and darkest time, making it the least popular. However, the northern lights are visible from October to March, giving an incentive to visit when it's colder.
