This once in a lifetime trip will be an unforgettable experience. Going dogsledding in Greenland will leave you speechless, this is an expedition style tour that’ll take you deep into the backcountry to stay at a hunters’ cabin or possibly even a specialized tent and properly experience the Polar night, one which might be illuminated by the incredible northern lights.
From when you get introduced to your dogsled driver and the dogs, you will become a part of the team and you will be helping with things like preparing meals, putting up tents or preparations at the hut, whichever you will be staying in. You will be helping with ice cutting, melt snow for drinking, feeding the dogs and packing the sled. You will be learning about the dogs, how they obey and react to the driver, and what you can do to participate when traveling by dog sled. You will get to experience how Greenlanders used to depend so much on the dogs, and how many still use them as a means of transportation, and you’ll clearly see how much energy and skill it takes to handle a dogsled.
This expedition can be challenging going on hard ascends and fast descends we do not recommend taking it on if you are not at good health or if you have back problems.
