Greenland is considered a remote destination, but did you know there are even off-the-beaten paths in this far off island? One of the challenges of being isolated, is that it can be difficult to find information about travelling to Greenland as a tourist. Enter visitgreenland.com’s revamped Destination series, which offers a mini-landing page with the most essential information for 27 places in Greenland in English, German and Danish.
The new Destination series will help the traveller visualise and plan a trip to Greenland more easily than before. Beyond the expected travel tips and information, the series features special elements like audio pronunciation of each destination, digital hashtags to connect with locals and tourists and live weather information to navigate your day.
“Visit Greenland continues to assist the growth of locally-anchored tourism by providing digital support in destinations that are already established, and by setting focus on lesser known places that have tourism ambitions. The first step in the tourism journey is creating visibility and connections.” explains Anne Nivíka Grødem, Acting CEO of Visit Greenland.
New remote destinations highlighted in the Destination series include East Greenland’s snowcapped settlements of Kuummiut and Tiilerilaaq, to Greenland’s northernmost village Siorapaluk, to the country’s largest settlement Kapisillit to the southernmost town of Nanortalik. All pages were checked in collaboration with the Regional DMOs. By creating content about it, Visitgreenland.com is sparking dreams about visiting these destinations – and also helping to making it a reality.
For example, you can read that Siorapaluk’s church also functions as its school and public library (as it does in many other settlements) and that not all houses have running water and must be collected from a communal tap-house. All useful information that helps to get a sense of the location one is heading to.
“Oftentimes much time is spent in the research phase if you are planning a trip to Greenland. The Destination series offers shortcuts like giving local tourism operators spotlight, and providing a sense of what experiences and services are available. The new Destination series supports the tourism industry’s ambitions to develop and support tourism services in all of Greenland all year round,” concludes Anne Nivika Grødem, Acting CEO of Visit Greenland.
