Dog sled tours
The land around Qasigiannguit are ideal for different types of dog sled tours. The tours can go on flat ice along the land-coast and on lightly hilled terrain. The tours can last from a couple of hours to several days.
The level of difficulty can be described on a scale from 1-3. This means that most people in all ages can join a sled dog trip. You can have a great opportunity to experience the thrilled feeling of getting a close look at the enormous inland ice. In the summertime the sled dogs are relaxing and being prepared for the coming winter season.
Hiking and trekking
Beautiful viewpoints to the icebergs in the water, and in land waterfalls, springs and rockslides and of course signs of the former total cover of the ice cap are exposed. During the hikes a lot of culture and natural history is revealed.
Evidences of the very old Saqqaq culture can be seen around the Qasigiannguit area. People with interest in geology and speleology can have much fun in short as well as longer hikes. Longer hikes – trekking – can be done to the nearest smaller village.
