Journey Through The Arctic Landscape to Tiniteqilaaq
This exciting journey through the arctic wilderness starts by the dog area north of town, here the musher and his dogs will be waiting for you. After a quick introduction and briefing about the journey ahead, the musher will place you and your bag on the sledge and get the dogs ready. The trip takes you across Kong Oscar's Fjord towards the an area called the Coffeehouse. Along the way, we will travel through narrow passages of frozen landscape and steep mountainsides. You will get to experience the bond between man and dog, as well as the trials of the arctic terrain. The dogs and musher will bring you up steep mountains and hills to reach the destination. This will though sometimes require you to walk beside the sled or if you are willing to, push the sled up hills. Along the journey, there will be plenty of opportunities to stop for pictures and short breaks. The tour allows you to push your boundaries in the safe company of the musher, and learn some of the techniques that are required to control a dogsled. The 12 hour trip to the wonderful Tiniteqilaaq, will mesmerize you beyond your belief.
Arriving in the charming little settlement of Tinit, you will be met by the friendly locals and taken to your hut.
Return to Tasiilaq
After breakfast, you will be heading back to Tasiilaq. You will travel back the same way you cam, but not to worry! The journey back will be equally as mesmerizing and stunning as the journey to Tinit. Still, plenty of stops to take pictures and catch your breath before continuing through the winter paradise.
