What clothes to take on a hike in Greenland

For safety and a comfortable trip it is important to bring clothing made for outdoor activities, as it enhances the experience and comfort.

Good quality raingear is mandatory, jacket and pants (windproof, waterproof and breathable), and thermal underwear made of wool or synthetic materials. Cotton clothing is not suitable for this type of outdoor activity, nor are jeans and T-shirts. 

Wear sturdy hiking boots, preferably waterproof with ankle support, as the terrain is mostly uneven. Trousers made of robust and lightweight material that dries quickly are a good choice (e.g. softshell). Take a puffy jacket (down or Primaloft) for chilly moments as well as gloves, two or three pairs of warm socks and a hat (wool or synthetic).

All customers receive a detailed equipment list as soon as they register for one of our trips.
