Question Which plane for Canada to Europe?

Does anyone here know which planes you could choose if you wanted to fly with 4 passengers and luggage from Canada to Europe? Do you have to go over $500K to get a plane that could do that? I've tried doing research but can't find answers. Would you and can you refuel in Greenland then Iceland? Would you then refuel in the UK or Norway? Is it true the UK can arrest you for nothing?

I understand that refueling with AvGas in Greenland can be a problem.
Apparently they don't stock it at the airports there and you have to
make prior arrangements to have it shipped there in drums along with a
pump to transfer it into your plane. The usual route is Newfoundland
to Greenland to Iceland to Scotland. Norway is usually not part of
the equation. There was a preplanned mass flight of light aircraft to
Europe using these routes a few years ago that would make good reading
for someone planning that trip.
