Events in Greenland 2020

One of the things we most love about exploring a new place is the chance to tag a trip onto a fun event. It’s a great way to see another side of a place and its people and a perfect opportunity to make memories you’ll treasure forever! (cheesy but true).

Greenland is already an off-the-beaten-track destination which makes it top on our list of places to explore. Here are some exciting events taking place in 2020 that might inspire you to turn your dream into an action plan.

Could this be the toughest and most jaw-dropping cross-country skiing race in the world? If you dream of challenges then you can join skiers from all over the world to race 160 km across 3 days, spending nights camping in tents in the wilderness. More details 

  • Arctic Sounds –  APRIL 9 – APRIL 13
