Tour description

Immerse yourself in the local Inuit culture through the dogsledding. Your English speaking musher will help you to understand importance of this essential winter travel way.

For us it is important that you, as a visitor to Ilulissat, get involved with its people and take time to immerse yourself in the local culture through activities such as dogsledding. It is not only about the ride, but also about learning about the art of dogsledding. Our guide speaks fluent English and will explain and show you which are the steps to follow before starting a dogsled journey: how dogsleds are built, how to maintain and fix them, how to use the whip (a good use of the whip never touches the dogs), how to take care of the dogs, how to feed them and how to educate them.Once you have experienced and learned about the preparation, everything is ready to start our journey. The backcountry of Ilulissat offers great landscapes to be discovered, and we give you all the ingredients to make that possible. Dogsledding is probably the most authentic way to explore the snowy valleys, mountains, frozen lakes, fjords and the sea ice around Ilulissat.The route we choose will always depend on snow and ice conditions. Our main choice is going to the UNESCO site in Ilulissat, where we can find astonishing views of the Icefjord with a vibrant winter atmosphere. In our favourite spot we will have a break with hot drinks and biscuits.
