Tourists and hunting

Everyone that wishes to go hunting in Greenland is required to have a hunting license. A hunting license is a permission to go hunting. One of the terms to get a hunting license is a permanent address in Greenland. As a consequence tourists can not get a hunting license.

If you are a tourist and you wish to go hunting in Greenland, your only option is to go by a licensed hunting operator. You can find licensed hunting operators online at Visit Greenland’s webpage www.greenland.com or at the local post office.

The operator will inform you about:
  • Requirements of bringing a hunting license from your home country
  • How to import your own weapons into Greenland

In addition the operator will be able to inform you about:
  • Hunting- and preserving rules
  • The weapons act
  • The individual hunting grounds
  • Preparation of hunting trophies
  • Safety
