Drive into the vast wilderness of the Disko Island on a dogsled! Get far away from everything, into the Arctic winter wonderland without the sound of engines - you will only hear the stomping of paws against the snow and a roaring silence. 

Dogsledding has for hundreds of years been an important and reliable means of transportation for the Inuit people of Greenland. Today the dogsleds are still used for traditional purposes, such as hunting and fishing, but also for leisure. While cruising over the snow-covered plains you can enjoy the view of the rough nature of the Disko Island, which is unique and different from the mainland Greenland, with its tall basalt mountains. 

Experiencing dogsledding is fascinating, as you will not only see the nature but also the Greenlandic culture, and the strong bond between the dogs and their musher - how human and animals can work together. You can get a tiny little taste of, how the great Arctic explorers have travelled the north on their expeditions, on this five hours long trip into the wild.
