The dog sledge is one of the strongest icons of Greenland. An Inuit tradition, dating 2000 years back in time! You will not find many other means of transportation, which has survived for so long without any changes. The basic principle is still the same as in the Viking age; dogs tied to a simple construction of wood. The experience cannot be explained – you have to try it while in Greenland!
Ilulissat is the biggest sledge district in Greenland and offers many great dog sledge experiences. The sledge dog driver may take you towards “Brede bugt” where you can enjoy the view of the Disko Bay. He might even take you onto the sea ice if this is thick enough.
Minimum age of 8 years apply.
If you book two people you go on the same sled, whereas if you are a single person you will be put together with another guest on the same sled.
On sledge rides, there is no guarantee that the driver speaks Danish or English. However, we can promise you that a lot can be understood using gesticulations.
You can rent arctic jacket, trousers and boots.
