Dogsledding, 5 hours | Qeqertarsuaq | Disko Bay
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.

What to bring
- Warm winter wear. Ideally, you should dress in layers: at least one thermal underwear layer (top and bottom), activity layer (e.g. hiking pants and shirt), and insulation layer (e.g. fleece or down jacket). The outer layer must be proper winter gear which typically has lots of insulation and is windproof. Think ski jacket and pants if you come from a warmer climate.
- Warm hat, thick windproof gloves, buff or scarf
- Insulated winter boots
- Sunglasses and sunscreen - snow is very bright and even the winter sun can cause sunburn
- Camera with extra batteries (the cold drains the batteries faster)
- Day pack
