Dog Sledge Tours

As soon as the snow and ice allow to do so, it is possible to experience the unique nature from a dog sledge pulled by real Greenland dogs.
 
The dogs live in harmony with nature and are not pets. The passengers should therefore keep an appropriate distance and not approach the dogs without the permission of the coachman.
 
When you have had a ride in a dog sledge where you have felt an authentic glimpse of the past and felt in harmony with nature, you will never be the same again.
 
It is not possible to describe a ride in a dog sledge - it is something you simply have to try out yourself!
 
There are many possibilities when it comes to dog sledge rides - e.g. from rides lasting two hours and rides lasting several weeks.
 
The dog sledge season is from the middle of December to the end of April.

To Kangerlussuaq from Sisimiut or vice versa



The dog sledge trip between Kangerlussuaq and Sisimiut is a remarkable opportunity to experience adventure. During the three days you will get a chance to get a very close relationship with the driver and the sledge dogs. You will feel the close relationship between them and get an insight into very old traditions of sledge riding. During the ride, you will get a chance to observe the Greenlandic nature with its varied ground, experience extremely low temperatures, bright sunshine, northern lights or a snowstorm. You will get close to the Arctic animal life with reindeer, grouses and hares. You will sleep in cabins and/or tents.
Note: the trip can replace one of the flights between Sisimiut and Kangerlussuaq.
