Dogsledding has been and still is a crucial transportation for the Inuit people. Back in the days it was a necessity for survival, as it allowed the hunters to go far and beyond to hunt seal and other arctic animals. Today however, it is important for the locals to keep traditions alive. This trip allows you to understand how knowledgeable the musher is and he will teach you what the sled can do, about the dogs and their behavior along with the dedication it takes to train Greenlandic dogs as a pack. An astonishing cultural experience that combines the stunning landscape of ice and snow in the safe hands of the local musher. On this two-hour journey, you will get to learn to control the dogs and sled and travel through the untouched tundra.

After going through the safety and you have gotten an understanding of the sled and dogs we will start heading out for our journey towards UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ilulissat Icefjord. The start of the journey will be the most impressive and thrilling experience, as you sit back and let the dogs and musher take you across frozen lakes, hillsides and impressive scenery. Arriving at the Icefjord we will get a well-deserved break with warm beverages and breathtaking views in every direction. A unique experience among ice covered terrain and the fresh breeze on you face. Join this amazing arctic experience while in Ilulissat and bring back some incredible pictures back home.
