Dogsledding in Kulusuk or Tasiilaq

Experience the classic Greenlandic mode of transport – the dogsled! It’s the means of transport the old Inuit employed to get from A to B, and it’s still a popular and safe mode of transport.

Explore the magical snow-clad landscape, head up steep inclines and through difficult terrain which your four-legged furry friends are trained to be able to navigate in.
Arctic Wonderland Tours gives you a proper introduction to the classic Greenlandic mode of transport – the dogsled! It’s the means of transport the old Inuit employed to get from A to B, and it’s still a popular and safe mode of transport.

It may look easier than it is in reality as the driver’s position on the wooden sled has a great influence on speed and mobility.

As an example, Arctic Wonderland Tours has trips to the Apusiajik glacier, which means ‘small glacier’, and full-day trips in the Kulusuk area. The trips start from where you’re staying and include various stops en route.

On the website you can see a video of dogsled driving.
