Filming in Greenland
Greenland, an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark, is a popular location for filming due to its unique and diverse landscapes, including glaciers, fjords, and tundra.
However, filming in Greenland can be challenging due to the harsh weather conditions and the remoteness of some locations. It is necessary to obtain the necessary permits and permissions to film in Greenland, which our Partner knows how to obtain through the Government of Greenland.
Additionally, it is important to be aware of and respect the rights and culture of the indigenous Inuit population.
The weather in Greenland can vary depending on the time of year and location within the country. In general, Greenland has a polar climate, characterized by long, cold winters and short, cool summers. The country is mostly covered by ice and snow, and temperatures can drop as low as -40°C (-40°F) in the winter. In the summer months, the temperature can rise up to 10°C (50°F) along the coast, but it remains cool in the interior. The sea ice melts during this time and the coastal areas become accessible. The coastal areas also receive more precipitation in the form of snow and rain, while the interior is dry and cold.
It’s important to note that the weather in Greenland can be unpredictable, and sudden changes in temperature and precipitation are common. Strong winds and storms can also affect the coastal areas. Additionally, the northern part of Greenland, above the Arctic Circle, experiences a polar night (no daylight) for several weeks in the winter and a polar day (24-hour daylight) in the summer.
