Are there any special requirements for driving or hiring a car in Greenland?

In Greenland you drive on the right, there is very little road transport and most travel is done by boat or air. There are only 150km of roads in the whole of Greenland and only 60km of the roads are paved. Transport by road is only possible at certain times of the year and gravel roads are often in poor conditions due to the winter ice. Driving in Greenland is usually stress free due to the small size of the country and you will rarely have issues with traffic or impatient drivers.
