Ilulissat Excursions Winter
A guided city sightseeing with introduction to Ilulissat and the everyday life, the town´s history and the culture along with Greenland´s history in general. We pay a visit the historic part of the town back to the start of the Danish trading station and the fishermen at the harbour by their trading post “Brædtet” and learn about administration and politics in the modern Greenland. At the Knud Rasmussen (polar explorer) you will find an interesting excibition and outside a model of a turfhouse standing next to modern concrete buildings. Duration approx. 3 hours.
These hour-based dogsled tours with experienced local fishermen are the perfect solution if you do not want to spend a full day outdoor or if you want to do a "test-drive" before going on longer tours. You will get this unique opportunity to experience the dogsled pulled by approx. 10 dogs into the an Arctic Wonderland with the only sound of the dogs and the creaking runners beneath you. Requires good physics and proper clothing.
It is very important to note that the right equipment is essential when travelling by dogsled. Not only need security be seen to, but wrong clothing can easily spoil your tour. Please contact us for rent of polar clothing.
Operation of all excursions is depending upon weather conditions. We therefore reserve the right to cancel or alter the operation of excursions if the power of nature should hold us back. We will of course always seek to offer an alternative. We also kindly ask you to pay attention to the special WAIVER RELEASE AGREEMENT REGARDING DOGSLEDDING IN GREENLAND - PLEASE CLICK HERE!
