Transport in Greenland is by boat, a great way to enjoy the scenery.
The currency in Greenland is the Danish Krone (DKK)
We recommend a budget of around 2000DKK for food on this trip but this is widely variable. This number is based on a mixture of restaurant and supermarket food options. Alcohol is very expensive in Greenland, if you want to enjoy an evening drink after your days adventures, we recommend buying Duty Free alcohol in the airport.
