Arne and Stefan hook up with the Støvlbæk Brothers snowmobiling crew for an epic day of riding in the huge Sisimiut backcountry.
The Arctic is more than deep backcountry and fierce outback, it is also vibrant, urban towns with street culture, art, and playful kids. In the “Urban Arctic” episode Arne and Stefan explore everyday life in Sisimiut, Greenland’s second largest town.
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.
Hunting for musk oxen and reindeer is like listening to and learning from the echoes of hundreds of generations past, and the land we travel over has seen countless local hunters over millennia.
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.
Hunting is our main way of life, and we make sure the whole animal enters into a sustainable cycle, and a trophy hunt with us is a 3-4 day adventure where we travel to our backcountry camp, set up for the hunt, prepare rifles and gear, and set off on foot.
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.
All of North Safari’s hunting activities can be combined with helicopter transport in and out of the hunting areas to give you maximum time for hunting and conserves energy for the actual activity.
Hunting reindeer is an important part of local culture and subsistence, and when you join us for a trip into the Kangerlussuaq back country looking for reindeer you walk in the footsteps of countless generations before you.
Summer and Fall are perfect for spending time in the mountains, setting up a camp, and hunting for Musk Oxen in the Kangerlussuaq area.
For that ultimate angling and hunting combo we take you on an 8 day adventure into the heart of the best hunting grounds in the country, looking for musk oxen, and fishing for Arctic charr.
Hunting is a part of every community in Destination Arctic Circle and a number of service providers offer outstanding trophy hunting through the region. Kangerlussuaq is famous for musk ox hunting both Summer and Winter, with Winter hunts based on dogsledding to and from the hunting grounds. Sisimiut is great for reindeer hunting and small game trophies like Arctic hare and ptarmigan, and for hardy souls you can jump on a dogsled, do the 3-4 day trip to Kangerlussuaq and combine the adventure with a trophy hunt. Further south in the region Maniitsoq operators offer hunting in the southern Kangerlussuaq backcountry, using both helicopters, fixed wing planes, and charter boats to access the rich hunting grounds.
