Experience the pristine Arctic landscape around Kangerlussuaq using one of the oldest and most traditional forms of transportation in the Arctic - the dog sled.

Embrace Greenlandic culture as you are pulled through the tundra by a team of hardy Greenlandic dogs. They have been specially bred for this work over thousands of years by the Inuit, and their enthusiasm to pull, and the special bond that exists between them and their musher (dogsled driver) is plain to see.

On this tour, you will travel primarily across the frozen, flat ice of the fjord. This can be a smoother and more pleasant ride than dogsledding over hilly terrain, and may be more appropriate for those who have some back pain. Your musher will also explain how to control and care for the dogs, and you may even have a chance to drive them yourself!

If you are worried about the cold - don’t be. We will provide you with the preferred outer clothing of most mushers - warm furs and insulated winter boots - and a reindeer skin placed on top of the sledge will provide a further layer of insulation.
