The Danish territorial claim is rooted in the 10th-century explorations of the Vikings, though administrative power has changed hands several times over the centuries due to developments in Europe. The native Greenlanders , or Kalaallit , are Inuit descendants of nomads from northern Canada. Although all of Greenland is known for being cold, different parts of Greenland have significantly different temperatures. The coastal regions in the southern part of the island are influenced more by open ocean water and by frequent passage of cyclones, both of which help to keep the temperature there from being as low as in the north.
As a result of these influences, the average temperature in these areas in January is considerably higher. The interior ice sheet escapes much of the influence of heat transfer from the ocean or from cyclones, and its high elevation also acts to give it a colder climate since temperatures tend to decrease with elevation. In summer, the coastal regions of Greenland experience temperatures averaging just a few degrees above freezing in July, with slightly higher temperatures in the south and west than in the north and east. Along the coast, temperatures are kept from varying too much by the moderating influence of the nearby water or melting sea ice.
If you do not need a visa for Denmark, you can generally visit Greenland for up to 90 days in a half year without a visa, although your passport must be valid for at least three months after your visit. Nordic citizens Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish and Icelandic do not need visas for any length of stay, and can use any form of identity documentation to enter. If you do require a visa for Denmark, Schengen area visas issued for visits to mainland Denmark are not valid for Greenland or the Faeroe Islands. You will need a separate visa, which can be applied for at any Danish diplomatic post or embassy along with your Schengen visa for Denmark or Iceland if you are transiting through one of those countries.
If you are flying through Nunavut, you would need a Canadian temporary resident or transit visa. For more information look here.

If you stay on the typical tourist paths you do not need any permissions, but any expeditions including any trips to the national park , which by definition are expeditions need a special permit from the Danish polar centre.
If travelling with an agency they will usually take care of the paperwork. If you are entering or travelling through Thule Air Base , you also need a permission from the Danish department of foreign affairs, since it is a US military area except for children under 15, Danish police and military, US military or US diplomats.

Try uteqqipugut or Ittoqqortoormiit on for size. The good news is that almost all Greenlanders are bilingual Danish speakers, and many will even have a functional command of English. Greenlandic words may come in handy for travellers wanting to experience the "real Greenland", though. Greenlandic is different enough from Inuktitut, the language of the Canadian Inuit who share similar historical roots to the Greenlanders, that the two peoples have difficulty understanding each other.
However, attempts are being made to unify the Inuit language, and Greenlandic — with its existing libraries of translated Shakespeare and Pushkin — seems the most useful option.

Nuuk also has several burger bars and a couple of very high-end restaurants, most notably Nipisa, which specializes in very expensive local delicacies. Prices are high everywhere, but servings are generally large, especially with fries. A local speciality is Greenlandic coffee.
