Arne and Stefan continue their exploration of Winter adventures along Greenland’s Arctic Circle and this time they meet 17 year old Mia and 70 year old Marius Olsen for a journey into the heart of dogsledding.
Head up from Nuuk to Maniitsoq on a weekend getaway and get up close and personal with playful humpback whales, visit large bird colonies, or explore the cosy town of Maniitsoq.
If you’re already in Nuuk, why not treat yourself to a couple of adventurous days in Greenland’s second largest town, Sisimiut.
From Sisimiut we do one day trips to the alpine mountains northeast of town where a small glacier and a number of steep slopes are available. Or we can step things up a notch and head down to the rugged Itilleq mountains.
Our dogsledding trips can be designed to meet your needs, and if you’re looking for that sweet mix of a day out sledding and the nights spent back at your comfortable accommodation this is the perfect choice.
On an overnight dogsledding trip like this you will get to know the basics of driving a sled, participate in everyday activities, and maybe even help in a hunt that supplies food for dinner. This way you get up close and personal with the Arctic.
For a truly unique product which combines traditional hunting culture with dogsledding adventures and a deep power in nature, head out onto Kangerlussuaq fiord with Amasa and Putsi on a 4-5 day seal hunt.
On this tour, you are a part of the team and you will get up close and personal with local life as you help cooking, chopping ice, gathering snow for the coffee, packing the sled, and feeding the dogs.
The tour goes to the elevated view point of Qiterlinnguaq, where you will find a peculiar cabin shaped like an UFO with 180 degree panoramic views of the Kangerluarsuk Tulleq fiord.
The tour goes to the foot of Niujarfik, a natural stop before the steep gradients northeast of Sisimiut, and before turning back you will have a short break and enjoy a hot drink.
A full day adventure out of Sisimiut is a breathtaking trip with numerous impressions of the winter landscape, and it is a dogsled ride through rugged terrain with steep mountainsides.
Meet and pet the Greenlandic sled dog, while the guide and dog owner will tell you about dogsledding and its numerous advantages.
Riding the Arctic Circle Trail is a real Arctic expedition, but you do it in a controlled environment where you can safely test your personal limits. There’s simply no better way to get that true backcountry feeling.
This adventure is the perfect extension of a dogsledding intro trip, and not only will you get a sense of Greenlandic life with dogsleds, you will also get a good sense of the rough backcountry surrounding Kangerlussuaq.
The dogsled driver lets you experience the true Greenland the way the locals have done it for centuries. Do not miss out on this great little adventure. It’s the perfect distillation of all things Greenlandic.
On this 2-day trip, your driver will take you out on the Kangerlussuaq Fjord before ascending the terrain of the surrounding mountain sides. In this area you are all alone, surrounded by the magnificent Greenlandic nature.
Dogsledding in Western Greenland is only allowed above the Arctic Circle and this has made our communities in Sisimiut and Kangerlussuaq the southernmost destinations for practicing one of the oldest, strongest, and emotionally invested activities in the country. In Sisimiut dogsledding goes hand in hand with coastal fishing and hunting, and your drivers out here are often hunting for subsistence or fishing from small boats when not out dogsledding. The terrain around town is mountainous and has good climbs, long descends, and lots of views from high up above the fiords. Kangerlussuaq dogsledding is all about the huge, wide expanse of the fiord, and about backcountry hunting. Weather in here is unbelievably stable, sunny, and cold, and it makes for crisp, clear days of great driving.
