It is possible to reach the station by foot (15-20 km). Booking of favourable flight tickets is recommended ½ year in advance and travel time to the station will be 1-2 days from Copenhagen normally with a stop-over in Iceland. One day is normally spent in Tasiilaq before and after each visit to the station, to handle cargo, food and fuel. Hotel accommodation or rented rooms are available in Tasiilaq.
