If you don't have the time I suggest you go with a local guide or outfitter. You can buy weekly or monthly licences in most banks or post offices.
    Not really

    You don't rent a car on Greenland. There are no roads to the rivers! Instead you hike. Or you use a fatbike. Or you ask someone with a good boat to bring you to the rivermouth. We used packrafts and paddled from rivermouth to rivermouth along the fjords.

    You do the fishing permit in Greenland, if you're smart. I made the mistake to do it in Belgium, by bank transfer. It was 46 GBP for 1 week + 60 GBP for the bank transfer. Outrageous. If you pay it in Greenland, then it's 70 GBP.

    Biggest danger are lost/hungry polar bears and rabid polar foxes!

    Greenland is huge and you might spend days on google earth looking for something if you don't know where to look. Docsalmo is right in saying remote areas need other forms of transportation, it's only when you become old you realise age is a decisive factor when planning your own adventure and you find accessible regions and settlements where the fishing is done practically at your doorstep and you're spoilt for choice within hiking distance. Where even a road and a 4x4 rental makes things less tiring and more comfortable, it's all down to priorities and personal preference. Both types of fishing are available, but as I said things change and more rapidly in the most accessible places, I bet the roads get longer, too. For all I care you can hire a helicopter to drop you where you want, it is however not a necessity to enjoy a satisfying fishing trip and shouldn't discourage the more elderly adventurers, who favour a nice meal and a soft bed after a good days fishing over a fortnight stay on the open tundra.
