DOG SLED TOURS
The sled dog is an important part of the Greenlandic culture and has historically been the only means of transport as soon as the landscape was frozen and covered with snow. Dog sled tours will happen exactly the way the locals do it.
There are about 1000 dogs in Sisimiut, owned by locals. The dogs are used for hunting, fishing as well as tourism, but some does only have sled dogs as a leisure activity. All types of owners play an incredibly important role in the conservation of the dog sled culture in Greenland.
Dog Sled Discover Tour
This trip goes to the base of Niujarfik, where we take a short stop before we take a bigger rise northeast of Sisimiut. Before we drive back to Sisimiut, there will be a short break so there is time to take some pictures, while the sledder arranges the lines for the sled.
Dog Sled Adventure Tour
The adventure tour goes to the viewpoint Qiterlinnguaq, where you can enjoy the beautiful snowy landscape after some strenuous climbs. Just below the top is a funny hut shaped like an UFO. The UFO can be entered if requested, and can actually be a nice place to have a meal.
