Greenland Destination Guide



CURRENCY Greenland uses the Danish Krone (DKK). There are banks in all major towns, and in larger towns there may be a few places that accept foreign currency, but it is not common and the exchange rate is rarely favorable. CREDIT & DEBIT CARDS Credit cards can be used at many hotels, restaurants and shops, but we recommend you bring a small amount of Danish Krone with you to Greenland as some ATMs may not be in service on weekends or after banking hours.

SOUVENIRS To comply with Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) export regulations, souvenir shops will happily advise you on which items must stay in Greenland and which souvenirs can be yours to cherish forever. SHOPPING Most grocery goods are flown in by helicopter when the weather allows and are costly and hard to replenish on a timely basis. Therefore, we strongly suggest you refrain from purchasing basic food items, such as snacks and bottled water, so local residents won’t have to do without them.
