Kalaallit Forsikring / If skadesforsikring

People seek new challenges all the time - but the adventures could be devastating if you haven't taken the right precautions. It has become very popular to explore the icecap of Greenland. It is a very dangerous sport because the climate is tough and the weather changes rapidly.

A rescue is very expensive and the economic consequence of loosing equipment and having to pay for the rescue could be very severe.

The Danish government demands people crossing the icecap of Greenland to have insurance covering search and rescue. If the expedition gets in trouble and sends out a distress-signal the police in Greenland coordinates the search and rescue using helicopters, aeroplanes and trained rescue personnel. This and your equipment is what the insurance covers. It is possible to supply with a personal accident insurance.
