Get the ultimate Arctic experience with this two-hour dogsled tour, departing from Ilulissat! Explore the snow-covered wilderness surrounding Ilulissat, while sitting on the Greenlandic dogsled.
Your tour begins by the dogsled tracks, just outside of town, where you will be met by a local Iluliarmiut (a person from Ilulissat) musher. Before embarking on this exciting adventure, the musher will introduce you to his dogs. The Greenlandic sled dog is one of a kind, it is the purest dog race, due to is isolation from other dog races – which makes it quite unique. The dogs are raised as work dogs, and therefore it is not safe to approach the dogs on your own. The musher will show which dogs, that are safe to pet.
Once you have gotten comfortable on the sled, the musher will steer the dogs into the backcountry of Ilulissat. You will be surrounded by endless miles of frozen Arctic tundra, wildlife and other travelling dogsleds. Enjoy the pure silence, only disturbed by howling dogs and soaring eagles!
Your tours route depends on the snow and sea-ice conditions. If it is safe to venture out on the sea ice, the musher will help the dogs towards the ocean and upon the ice – if not, you will be continuing your journey further into the wild winter wonderland of Greenland.
