Dogsledding Night Tour
2 hours

We have prepared an adventure that marries the beauty of the night sky with the energy of half a dozen dogs. Prepare to glide like never before. Our dogsledding night tour is perfect for those who are always looking for new ways to experience life; an opportunity to break away and try something completely out of the ordinary. Forget about the common methods of travel for a night and become a musher.

Arctic nights awaken the senses and allow for a complete connection between you and your surroundings. The lack of sound and light pollution provide the perfect environment for a serene and spectacular snow ride. Imagine feeling the rush of the sled as you witness millions of night stars rush past you. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to catch a full moon or better yet the Northern Lights!

What to expect on your Dogsledding Night Tour

Join us in the middle of the wilderness where silence can be felt like never before. We will have hot drinks and biscuits during dogsledding breaks. We will tell Inuit stories and talk about the nature and lifestyle of Greenland. This 2-hour tour gives you the opportunity to make new friends regardless of whether they walk on two legs or four. It also allows you to put your own life into perspective. See the world through a different set of eyes. Driving through deep untouched snow, while seeing a blanket of a billion stars with the mountains silhouetted against the moonlight is not something you get to do everyday.

Previous experience is not a requirement. We provide all the necessary equipment. Our expert guide will teach you everything you need to know about the dogsled as well as the handling of the dogs. All you have to do is show up excited and ready for adventure and we’ll do the rest.

Itineraries with a heartfelt destiny

The Kangia Icefjord is not just an ice paradise. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 20 million tons of ice that are generated each day, give rise to some of the biggest icebergs on the planet which rise more than 100 meters above sea level. It is not surprising that the expeditions carried out in this place are truly incredible.

The dogs sledge highway, Sermermiut Valley, or Disko Island, are part of this unique orography, and can be seen and admired by following our itineraries.

Holmens Bakke, the famous place where the greeting of the sun is celebrated after the long winter darkness. And the settlement of Sermermiut, cradle of the first Inuit culture, are other destinations we reach.
