Every week they meet each other for a cup of coffee and talk about old Greenlandic handcrafts and traditions.

Dogsled expedition | Hunting and fishing on sea ice | Uummannaq | North Greenland

Come along on this 8-day Arctic adventure and experience the life of the hunters and fishermen of North Greenland for a week in the winter. This is an extraordinary insight, to the well preserved Inuit culture, found North of the Polar Circle.  You will arrive at the town of Uummannaq, far north of the Arctic Circle. Here the winters are long and full of snow, you will see a stunning landscape of frozen fjords, where the icebergs are caught, with a backdrop of the iconic heart-shaped Uummannaq mountain. Uummannaq is an island located in a big fjord, which freezes in winter. In winter the sea ice turns into a highway for the local people and hunters, who on dogsleds, snowmobiles, and sometimes in cars travel far on the ice. On this 8 days tour, you will truly experience to travel on a dogsled, as it not only will serve a means of transportation but also your bed. You will travel out of Uummannaq on the dogsled with a local hunter and join him on his daily life, help out with setting out long lines for fishing under the ice and go seal hunting. Being a hunter in these areas is not always easy and you will have to live on the terms of the surrounding nature, in a constant battle with the forces of mother nature. Your patience will be tested and you will work hard, but also have fun, experience a silence like nowhere else and get really close to the hunter and his sled-dogs.  A detailed description of the tour can be found below. Come along this dogsled adventure north of the Polar Circle and check the booking availability by pressing 'Choose a date' above.
