Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Departure from Tasiilaq


Village Adventure In Winter | Ammassalik Island | East Greenland


You will meet the dogs, musher and guide down at the dog area north of Tasiilaq town. A short greeting of the people that will be joining this adventurous journey will take place, here you also will be taken through the safety instructions that apply for the journey ahead.

The journey by dogsled will take approximately 4-5 five hours, depending on the route and conditions of the terrain. You will bare witness to the beautiful and breathtaking trip across fjords, ascending and descending steep mountain sides and loads of opportunities for stops along the way to take pictures. The journey on a dog sled is an authentic experience, and a good insight to how man and dog suffice each other for survival  and travel far and beyond, places that seem impossible to reach. While the dogs do what they do best, you can sit back and relax as you travel further into the arctic paradise. Listen the sound of rhythmic dog paws, moving along the winter ice!

When reaching our destination, you will be taken to your hut of the night. After a short rest inside the cozy hut, take the opportunity to stroll through the village. Being a very small community and very isolated, many of the locals speak very limited English. But they are extremely friendly and eager to meet new people and show you around, and might invite you to their home for a cup of coffee.

East Greenland Tours will prepare a special made dinner for you to enjoy, and a surprise lined up shortly after.

In the event of clear skies, there are great opportunity for scouting the northern lights. Out here you will have the perfect setting for the perfect picture and most scenic adventure imaginable.
