Best time to visit Avannaata:

Summer (June to August):

  • Summer is the most popular time to visit Greenland. During this period, the weather is relatively mild, with temperatures ranging from 40°F to 50°F (5°C to 15°C) in coastal areas. This is the time when you can experience the Midnight Sun phenomenon, with 24 hours of daylight, making it ideal for outdoor activities such as hiking, wildlife watching, and boat tours. It's also the best time for visiting Greenland's colorful villages, like Nuuk and Ilulissat, and for exploring the fjords and icebergs.

Late Spring (May) and Early Fall (September):

  • Late spring and early fall are shoulder seasons in Greenland. The temperatures are still manageable, ranging from 30°F to 45°F (-1°C to 7°C), and you can avoid the peak summer crowds. During these months, you can witness the transition from winter to summer or summer to winter, with melting ice or the first snowfall. Wildlife enthusiasts will find opportunities to see Arctic animals like whales and seals.

Winter (October to April):

  • Winter in Greenland is ideal for travelers interested in the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) and winter sports like dog sledding and cross-country skiing. The temperatures during this period can be extremely cold, ranging from -5°F to 20°F (-20°C to -6°C) in coastal areas, but colder in the interior. There are limited daylight hours, and many areas experience complete darkness for part of the winter. Be prepared for cold and challenging conditions, but the chance to witness the Northern Lights can be a rewarding experience.

Note on Access to Remote Areas:

  • Access to some remote areas of Greenland may be limited to specific seasons, and it's important to plan your trip and activities accordingly. Transportation options and the availability of accommodations may also vary depending on the time of year.
