Greenland is the ultimate remote and exotic getaway

There is something about the summer Midnight Sun that envelops anyone who takes a late evening walk hand in hand by the water in a soft, warm glow.

Or maybe it is something about lots of cozy candlelight while the Northern Lights slow dance in the dark sky that make wintertime in Greenland feel anything but cold. No matter the season, and no matter the town, Greenland is a couple’s paradise.

ILULISSAT: WHERE HEARTS MELT, NOT ICEBERGS

Light snow falls. New sea ice out in Disko Bay. Short “blue hours” just passing through between polar darkness and the cosmic show of Northern Lights. Enjoying these unique Arctic wonders together from a fur-lined dog sled one afternoon, and from the warmth of your hotel’s fireplace the next, makes for a most romantic winter holiday in Ilulissat.

Ilulissat sees countless celebrations of love. The small wooden church by the sea is filled with candles and joy as Greenlanders get married wearing colorful national costumes and smiles that must be wider than the Ilulissat Icefjord itself. For travelers, Ilulissat is often a place for celebrating engagements and honeymoons. For it is only this enchanting land which can do justice to such a once-in-a-lifetime event.

AN ECO LODGE TO CALL YOUR OWN

Some people just cannot get secluded enough, and for them there is Glacier Lodge Eqi. Tucked away many hours north of Ilulissat in North Greenland, this eco lodge is a summertime oasis for you and your loved one to sip wine on the terrace of your private lodge and bask in the Midnight Sun.

When the time comes to stir from your little slice of heaven, enjoy dinner at Café Victor where the chef plates tasty Greenlandic specialities for two. Finish the evening with a light walk or retire back to your terrace, all whilst the calving glacier next door serenades you long into the bright night.

We always look forward to the next evening of ‘hygge’, a Danish term for coziness, when one’s heart literally smiles because they are so glad about the loved ones around them.

NUUK: FULL OF LIFE, FULL OF LOVE

Greenlanders are an incredibly warm and loving people, embracing each other at the Nuuk Center shops or strolling arm in arm to get a sweet treat down at the Colonial Harbor. And of course, we always look forward to the next evening of ‘hygge’, a Danish term for coziness, when one’s heart literally smiles because they are so glad about the loved ones around them.

Nuuk offers plenty of options that rival any big city date night! Try a multi-course dinner complete with wine pairings at Restaurant Sarfalik or at Nipisa, each with fantastic panoramas of the city and Nuuk Fjord beyond. Or take Thai dishes at Restaurant Charoen Porn in the city center. Afterward, just a short walk through town leads you to Katuaq Culture House where you can catch an evening theatre performance or attend an art exhibit.

Greenland’s own city of lights

For an evening with an open schedule, drive the few kilometers out to Qinngorput, the furthest reaches of this Arctic metropolis. There stands the inuk Design stone installation of a Greenlandic man and woman. As you look across Malene Bay to Greenland’s own city of lights, consider the simple beauty of two people in love.

Will Greenland be the next place to inspire you and your dearest?
