Greenland is the second largest island in the world and the largest one that is not also a continent. It is also one of the least densely populated, which makes trail running here a real treat.
Coming in the summer means that there is plenty of sunlight and even more to explore. Coming in May, at the beginning of the trail running season, gives you the chance to see the Northern Lights, which is a life changing experience.
Greenland may not seem like an obvious trail running option, but it should be the next one on your list. Combined with camping, it is a great way to get out and explore a remote and foreign place.
Even during the summer, Greenland is quite cold. The average daily temperature hovers around 0°C. Sometimes it is warmer, especially near the coast, but the temperatures can also drop well below freezing. Summer tends to be pretty dry, but occasional cyclones are not infrequent.
Getting to Greenland can be quite complicated. You can fly into Kangerlussuaq Airport (SFJ) from Copenhagen and transfer internally from there. You can also fly from Reykjavik, Iceland o into any of SFJ, Maniitsoq (JSU), Nuuk (GOH) or Kulusuk (KUS). Traveling internally in Greenland is usually done via boat, helicopter or plane. There are few main roads in between settlements.
