Dog Sled Discover Tour
The Sled dog is an important part of the Greenlandic culture, and has historically been the only means of transportation when the landscape was frozen and covered in snow.
The dog sled ride will be exactly as the locals have always done it. The dogs are owned by locals who use them for hunting and fishing as well as tourist attractions, but some just own the dogs as a leisure activity. Both types of owners play an incredibly important role in the preservation of the dog sled culture in Greenland. Which one of the dog sled owners you will join on a ride, depends on which one is available on that given day. Some owners are talkative and are multilingual, whereas some are more quiet and introvert. But what both have in common, is, that they want you to have a unique experience.
You will be seated as a passenger right behind the dog sled owner, who sits in the front of the sled to control the dogs. On the tour you drive in a varied and hilly terrain where you truly experience sled dog work-ability and the driver’s skills.
We do not recommend any dog sled tours to people with back problems.
Remember to comply with the distance rules. Before the trip keep a good distance with the sled, and when the driver allows you to, you can take a seat on the sled. When coming back from the sled trip, say goodbye to the driver, and then keep a distance to the sled. These are safety rules, considering how the dogs can act.
