Dogsled trip in Ilulissat for the adventurous!

Winter dogsledding by the UNESCO site Ilulissat Icefiord

Ever dreamt about dogsledding in Greenland? Fulfil your dream on this 8 day trip to Kangerlussuaq and Ilulissat with 2 days out on the dogsled.

The silence is overwhelming, and the horizon never seems to end. The white surface is covered with a new topping of snow and the sun shines from a cloudless blue sky. The frost bites the cheeks and the dogs are eager to get going. The air is full of expectation. On the command of the driver the sled takes off. You are being pushed back. The speed surprises you as well as the significant smell from the dogs…

The Ice Cap welcomes you to Greenland
You will spend the first two days in Kangerlussuaq, which is the only place in Greenland where you can both see and stand on the infamous Ice Cap.  This white ice desert is an impressive experience and the tour is led by an informative guide. Large flocks of musk oxen and reindeer are another typical feature of the Kangerlussuaquan landscape, and if you are lucky you might get to see some of these Arctic animals in their natural habitat.

Ilulissat – town of sled dogs
Ilulissat is Greenland’s largest dogsled district which – inspired by the world famous explorer Knud Rasmussen – to its fullest explore the Greenlandic winter and the 1000 year old tradition.
Release your inner adventurer and participate on this sled trip experiencing the best of Ilulissat in winter time. The two day sled trip will give you lots of highlights of some of the most striking experiences in the grand nature full of snow, ice, silence and the magical northern lights combined with Ilulissat’s town and cultural life.

The winter temperature in Greenland is between 30 and 5 minus degrees so we welcome you to this unique white world where the nature sets the agenda!
