Air Greenland Bell212 helicopter on route flight in Illorsuit, Greenland, 71*N (2013).
In most places around the world (so I imagine), helicopter flying is pretty rare as car, bus, or train transport has become the easiest/cheapest/fastest way to cover relatively short distances.
But it is for this exact reason that, in Greenland, transportation by helicopter is a way of life! With no roads between any of the 70+ inhabited towns and settlements, helicopters create the Greenlandic highway – in the sky!!
And since we have the machines at our disposal, why not give them double-duty and use them for tourist flights, too?! You would be amazed by how much more detail one can see from a helicopter than from an airplane.

What is a #GreenlandPioneer, you ask? Everyone is welcome to his or her own interpretation, but we at Visit Greenland consider a #GreenlandPioneer anyone who travels to this great northern land to discover for oneself the true meaning of experiential travel. And it’s not only those who traverse the backcountry who count; travelers in search of culture-based holidays are every bit the Greenland pioneer, too!
