Greenland, a rugged expanse of untamed beauty, boasts a landscape marked by vast stretches of wilderness and towering peaks. With only a handful of settlements and sheep farms dotting the southern region, the absence of roads between towns and communities adds an extra layer of adventure to exploring this Arctic paradise. Navigating Greenland's expansive terrain is an adventure in itself, as flights are the lifeline, connecting one town to another. 

Aside from the awe-inspiring landscapes and remote communities, there is a highlighly unpredictable nature of Greenland's weather which  may lead to potential flight delays, sometimes lasting longer than anticipated.
