Dog sledding expedition | Kangerlussuaq to Sisimiut | West Greenland

This tour is an exciting adventure through the wilderness of Greenland, and with the harsh conditions of winter it is not for the faint of heart. This experience is a true expedition type, and what you'll get out of it, is well worth the money and effort. You will be traveling cross-country over the ice and mountains, with skilled and knowledgeable guides who will teach you what to do while traveling with dog sled. You will get to know the Greenlandic dogs and understand how strong and useful they are as you test your limits, spending nights in remote hunting cabins and in tents.  This experience will completely change your mind of how man and animal can work harmoniously together through the harsh environment. You will quickly become an important member of the team, helping out with food preparation, dog feeding and packing down the camp to fit on the sled. This trip is a challenge and is therefore not recommended for anyone with health issues or a bad back. During this trip you will go into unpredictable snow conditions, ascending and descending hills and mountains far below freezing temperatures. It is obligatory to rent adequate polar clothing and boots unless you have your own, which in our experience is rare, the staff will determine whether or not yours are suitable to ensure your comfort and safety.  The tour is normally from Kangerlussuaq to Sisimiut, but if you'd prefer to start from Sisimiut then please contact us.

Icebergs, Inuit Settlements and Aurora Phototour | Ilulissat | 8 days

Are you a keen photographer wanting to improve your skills while capturing stunning winter images of one of the most famous locations in Greenland? Join us on this 8-day photography adventure to the UNESCO World Heritage listed Ilulissat Icefjord - one of the most picturesque places on the planet. The name “Ilulissat” means “Icebergs” in the Greenlandic language. Here you will find some of the largest icebergs in the world, and it is widely believed that the iceberg that sank the Titanic originated from the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier that sits at the head of this Icefjord. Photographing these enormous ice sculptures from both land and sea is a key focus of this trip.  As is photography of the brightly coloured houses that are so characteristic of Greenland. While Ilulissat is filled with colourful buildings, it is now Greenland’s third largest city and quite modern. We will therefore travel North to the small Inuit settlement of Oqaatsut to spend several days photographing a more traditional way of life.  Oqaatsut is also a wonderful place to learn how to photograph the magical Northern Lights (weather and solar activity permitting). Due to the small population and limited light pollution, we will not need to go far to find interesting compositions that will enhance the images you capture.  The backdrop to all of this is the pristine white snow and the gorgeous pastel colours of sunrises and sunsets during the Arctic Winter. Your experienced photographic tutor will be able to assist you with both the technical and creative aspects of making the most of the spectacular light you will encounter, and ensure you return home with new photography skills and outstanding images of this remote paradise.  Scroll down to see more information in the full itinerary, and then reserve your place by clicking on “Book your tour” above.

Frequently Asked Questions

About winter tours

1. How cold is it in Greenland in the winter?

It depends on when you come and where you go. The coldest it can get is probably around -35°C (-31°F). The capital Nuuk usually has temperatures between -10° to -20°C (+14 to -4°F). Ilulissat is about 5°C (10°F) colder than that.

2. Will I have to buy new clothes and coats for a winter trip to Greenland?

Yes, if you live in the tropics. Probably no, if you go skiing. The key is to dress in layers. Some trips have warm skin coats for rental. Remember to layer your socks, and gloves too, if you’re going to take a lot of photos. A neck warmer will give you extra warmth.

3. Is it dark 24 hours in the winter?

In the High Arctic, yes, it is dark 24 hours in mid- winter. You will be amazed at how beautiful moonlight is on icebergs. Closer to the Arctic Circle, there are many places where it doesn’t get completely dark. We have colors of the twilight lighting up the southern horizon, even when the sun doesn’t come up.
