Dogsledding and Kayaking expedition w/ 1 night in Cabin | Sisimiut
Go on an expedition like tour in the footsteps of the Inuit hunters, bringing your kayak on a dogsled to the hunting grounds at the edge of the ice, this tour is for the truly adventurous!
Sisimiut is renowned for its awe-inspiring landscapes and adventurous people, and this tour is unlike any other in Greenland.
We’ll start off by dog sledding 3 hours to a cabin, where we can go inside and warm up a bit for lunch before heading further onto the sea ice until we reach a point where we can put the kayaks in the water.
The water is freezing but our drysuits will keep us nice and cozy, and the landscape is surreal.
We’ll spend about 2 hours in the kayaks, it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or not, the guide will make sure you get a proper introduction on how to use the kayak. Gliding along the silent Arctic Ocean is an unforgettable experience, and without another soul nearby we might get lucky and spot some wildlife such as seals or reindeer.
After the kayaking, we’ll head back into the cabin to get changed and warm again, then head out close by to make a hole in the sea ice and try to catch some fish for dinner. Nothing better than fresh fish after a long and exciting day.
We’ll spend the night in the cabin, there is a heater so we’ll be toasty all night. After breakfast, it’s time to head back to Sisimiut with lots of new memories to share.

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
- Water bottle
- We'll be spending most of the day outside in the cold, so make sure you dress appropriately and are prepared for some level of discomfort.
- Although dogsledding is fairly relaxing, you still need to be reasonably fit.
- Dogsledding is not suitable for people with a bad back as it can get very bumpy at times.
