Greenland Centre opened in Reykjavik

A new centre that focuses on trips to Greenland, Greenlandic souvenirs and design opened in early February in Reykjavik. The centre is situated at the far end of the city’s busy shopping street, Laugavegur. Kattie Nielsen and Fridrik Magnusson, who run the centre, have both spent many years working in tourism and the marketing of Iceland and Greenland.   

“We set up this centre to bridge the gap between Iceland and Greenland. Our focus is on tourism, culture, arts and crafts, but we can also offer conference facilities and arrange for Icelandic and Greenlandic companies to meet up and network with one another,” the couple explained in a press release. 

Visit Greenland used the Mid-Atlantic tradeshow to celebrate the opening of the Greenland Centre by organising a networking event attended by up to 80 people (locals and foreigners).

Hotel Narsaq and South Greenland Connect, which has been running ferry services between, for example, Narsarsuaq and Narsaq since 2014, are also associated with the Greenland Centre. The centre is open between 11 am and 6 pm on weekdays and between midday and 6 pm on Saturdays. It is closed on Sundays during the winter months but open in the summer from early morning to late afternoon.
