After a quick introduction and briefing about the journey ahead, will the musher place your bags on the sled and get ready to start. You will be seated on the sled where you will travel across the Kong Oscar Fjord towards the Coffeehouse through narrow passages of frozen landscape and steep hillsides. You will get to experience the teamwork of man and dog of the trials of the arctic terrain as they climb steep mountains and hills to reach a destination. This will though sometimes require you to walk beside the sled or if you are willing to learn and help, to push the sled up hills. Along the journey there will be plenty of opportunities to stop for pictures and short breaks, as the journey is long and demanding. The tour allows you to push your boundaries in the safe company of the musher, and learn some of the techniques of the art on controlling a dogsled. The 12 hour trip to the wonderful Tiniteqilaaq, will mesmerize you beyond your belief.
Arriving in the charming little settlement of Tinit, you will be met by the friendly locals and taken to your hut.
Day 2 - Return to Tasiilaq
After eating breakfast to the outstanding view outside it is time to pack up the sled and head back the same way you came. But don't worry, the journey back will be equally as mesmerizing and stunning as the journey to Tinit. Still plenty of stops to take pictures and catch your breath before continuing through the arctic tundra of the winter paradise.
