The unique and authentic dogsledding in Greenland!

Unlike in other parts of the world, dog sledding in Greenland is not a tourist activity – it is an authentic part of Greenlandic culture and is deeply rooted in the local lifestyle. Dog Sledding Discovery tour is the perfect way to explore this unique part of Arctic culture and the bond between sledge dogs and the humans.

The Discovery Tour is approximately 2 hours long, and you will go through a mountainous area with experienced local hunters who always oversee their dogs. The given price is based on 2 person per group during this excursion. 

Historically, dog sledding is the only transportation in Greenland, and it is well preserved till now. When winter comes and snow starts to fall, it’s the season for dogsledding in Greenland. Dogsledding is an authentic experience compared to other modern types of winter transport like snowmobiles.

Seated on the sledge with a local musher, the mountains around you seem slightly higher and you are closer to the snow-covered ground. Everything around you is calm, all you can hear is the panting of the sledge dogs, their paws pounding against the squeaking snow. You are moving forward fast, but still, you have the time to observe the breath-taking nature around you. Imagine this tour as a time machine, taking you back hundreds of years, doing exactly the things the Greenlanders did at that time.

Sledge dogs are not pets! They are working animals and trusted buddies of their owners. Even though they look fluffy and cute, the wild instinct remains strong within their genes. You should always keep a safe distance with them and never approach, pet or feed them, no matter what!

Respect the rules and have fun!
