Dog Sledding Tour, 3 days

Dog sledding is a meaningful part of Greenlandic culture and is a traditional, age-old form of transportation that has been used by the Inuit for centuries when the landscape becomes otherwise impassable beneath blankets of snow and ice.

The trip between Kangerlussuaq and Sisimiut offers a true expedition experience, allowing you to test your limits in a controlled environment and truly begin to grasp Greenland’s enormity. During the 3-day journey, you will mostly overnight in remote hunting cabins, but some time will be spent in a tent.

Together with the sled driver on this expedition, you will experience Greenland’s harsh and captivating environment, where man, animal and nature work harmoniously. You will become an important part of the team and will be involved with preparing food, packing the sled and feeding the dogs. The trip can be quite challenging at times and guests should be in good health and condition. Due to the rough and unpredictable terrain, including ascents and descents, we do not recommend this tour for people who have back problems.

Please note that it is obligatory to rent polar clothing (seal skin or down) and boots, unless you have proper polar equipment of your own. In our experience, very few participants bring adequate equipment to ensure their safety and comfort while on the expedition. Our staff will determine whether you have proper clothes for this expedition.

If you are interested in renting gear, Albatros Arctic Circle offers equipment rentals.

As an alternative, this expedition can begin in Sisimiut. Contact us for details.
