Tourists enter Greenland by international flights into Ilulissat, Kangerlussuaq, Nuuk, Narsarsuaq, Kulusuk and Nerlerit Inaat in Ittoqqortoormiit or by cruiseships. Inside Greenland, travelling usually means a combination of flight and sailing.
Accommodation standards differ, from hotels to bed and breakfasts in towns, to private accommodation in settlements. Camping is an option too, though it requires preparation.
The Disko Bay area has the predominant part of cruise tourism and hotel stays and is the best-developed tourism market in Greenland. It also has the highest number of tourism operators. The Kangerlussuaq and Narsarsuaq airports were built as American WWII military airports, and later on handel over to Greenland. They are located on mainland, where weather is more stable. This makes them good hubs for outdoor tourism. Kulusuk in East Greenland has many one-day visits from Iceland. East Green land is also a popular destination for advanced outdoor tourists. A few outdoor tourists dare venture across the Ice Cap, usually between Kangerlussuaq and Tasiilaq. This requires a special permit from the government. Outdoor tourism peaks in the summer season but maintains some activity in winter as well. Cruise season generally runs from spring to fall.
