Short dog sled tour

The Sled dog is an important part of the Greenlandic culture, and has historically been the only means of transportation when the landscape were frozen and covered in snow.

The dog sled ride will go excactly as the way the locals do it. Which are owned by locals who use the dogs for hunting, fishing aswell as tourism, but some just own the dogs as a sparetime activity. Both types of owners plays 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 dog sled 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 an 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. This tour goes to the foot of Niujarfik, where there will be a stop, before the big climb northeast of Sisimiut. Before heading back, there will be a short stop where there is time to take photos while the sledge driver will take care of the sledge liners.

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 take a seat, you can seat yourself on the sled. When coming back from sled trip, say goodbye to the driver, and then keep a distance to the sled. These are saftety rules, when considered how the dogs can act.
