Clients would need to leave their home cities on a Saturday evening and arrive late Sunday morning.
Then you will overnight in Copenhagen, depart Copenhagen to Kangerlussauq Monday morning.
You will be returning Friday late morning and arriving in Copenhagen early evening.
You will then overnight Friday, leaving Copenhagen Saturday morning.
This causes us to gain back about 6-9 hours in time difference, arriving in your home city mid-day Saturday (depending on departure day).
Kangerlussauq in western Greenland is located just above the artic circle.
It is near the top end of the longest fijord in Greenland.
-120 mile long Sondre Stromfijord-
The Kangerlussauq airport is Greenlands largest, and is serviced Monday thru Friday by the national air carrier
"Air Greenland". (these tickets must be bought separately from airgreenland.com.
(expect about $900-$1200 from Copenhagen Denmark.)
The 2133 mile flight takes about 4 hours and 20 minutes.
From Denmark you cross 4 time zones. So, with most flights departing at 9:15am, you arrive at 9:40am local time.
With the flight returning from Kangerlussuaq to Copenhagen, most fligts depart at about 11:40am and you arrive at 8pm local time.
*Because of the flights going to Greenland in the morning and returning to Denmark late evenings, you will need to overnight in Denmark both ways.
Sun rise in mid-August will be 6:30am.
Sunset will be 8pm. There will be lingering pre sunrises and the same for sunsets.
Mid-September sunrise 7am with a sunset of 7pm.
In August, we do get rains, but they don't seem to be heavy. They are more of a mist.
September is drier, but morning snow becomes more common within the month.
Some light rain gear may be necessary. Bring layered clothing for the particular week you hunt, also a day pack.
After you hunt, we often take hunters up on the Polar Ice Cap.
The Polar Ice Cap covers 90% of the island.
From Kangerlussauq, there is a drive up one of the few roads in Greenland that goes up to the ice cap.
This is the only such road in the country, and the drive is spectacular!
