We have made some packing lists that may help your prepare for your trip to Greenland:
Suitcase. You will have to handle your luggage at the airports and hotels in Greenland. During the tour, your luggage will be handled by hotel staff or others.

It might get dirty and damaged so do not bring brand new and expensive luggage.
Small backpack for day trips to hold your phone, camera, water, and other personal belongings. If you are planning to hike, the good idea is to have a backpack with a hip belt and a chest strap.
