Our four-legged friends are ready to give you an experience of a lifetime. Try your hand as a musher and steer your own pack of dogs, or enjoy the view as a passenger. Huskies, the breed commonly used for dog sledding, are strong and know their way around the country better than any GPS system. The adventure starts when you feel the first pull of the dog sledge. As your sled runs through the greenlandic winterland and your cheeks get red, you will get a taste of what life was like in the old days, when dog sledding was the only way of transportation on the mainland.
There are different versions of this trip between 2 and 6 hours, depending on the destination of your journey. The trip itself is an unforgettable experience and the magnificent scenery at its end is just a cherry on top.
