Travel to and from East Greenland

In summer you’ll fly Air Iceland from Reykjavik, operating 6 days a week, 2 hours with Fokker 50’s.

Locally, you’ll either have arranged a boat to take you to Tasiilaq, Tiniteqilaaq, Isertoq, Kuummiut or Sermiligaq – or you’ll take the 12 minute helicopter flight to Tasiilaq. From there, you’ll also be able to travel by helicopter to all other local villages.
Air Greenland helicopters – make sure you book early.

It is of course easy to just push off right from the airport (10 minute walk to the shore). You'll however need to carry your gear to the shore (you may be able to pay the hotel for driving your gear, also check with Jóhann or the post office van).
