Q&A: Which Paper Charts For Greenland?

Question: What charts do you recommend for cruising Greenland? We have C-Map charts but they have insufficient coverage.

Answer: By far the best charts for Greenland are the Danish ones. Don’t get US or British Admiralty charts; they are not anywhere near as good as the Danish charts. I believe that Blue Water Charts in the USA can get Danish charts. But if you are in Norway you will probably get them faster and less expensively by going direct to the Danish chart office or a distributor.
