Getting to Greenland involves getting to Iceland first – we outline the logistics below:
BEFORE THE EVENT
All participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements from their home country to Akureyri in the north of Iceland.
This will start with a flight from your home country to Keflavik international airport. See our Flights page for details of airlines that fly to Iceland.*
From Keflavik, you could choose to hire a car to drive to Akureyri, taking in the sights along the way. This is roughly a five hour drive.
Internal flights are also available from Reykjavik city airport to Akureyri several times a day. A regular bus service operates from Keflavik airport into the centre of Reykjavik.
Once in Akureyri, there are a variety of hotels and self catering options available.
On Tuesday 23rd April 2019 a private charter flight will leave Akureyri airport at 10:00, flying to Constable Point, Greenland. All participants must get to Akureyri in time for this flight to Greenland – we cannot accept any liability if you fail to arrive on time! (The next available schedule flight is unlikely to be for several days, resulting in your inability to take part in the event).
*Please note: Iceland international and domestic flights, in addition to driving conditions within Iceland, can be subject to delays or cancellation, especially due to severe weather. We strongly advise you to make travel plans with some flexibility for alternative arrangements, in case of delay or cancellation.
AFTER THE EVENT
On Thursday 2nd May 2019 all participants will return to Akureyri in north Iceland on a private charter flight*. We recommmend staying the night in Akureyri – participants are responsible for booking their own accomodation for this. All onward travel arrangements are also the participants’ responsibility.
*Please note: as above, this flight can be delayed due to bad weather, so we again recommend you do book flexible fares for your onward journey within Iceland and from Iceland to your home country, or plan your itinerary so as to spend one or two extra days in Iceland.
