East Greenland is probably the most isolated part of this great country, and here old traditions are still very much upheld. In winter, hunting and ice fishing are a part of the way of life and dogsledders are used to travel between locations and for hunting. For visitors, dogsledding is a great way to experience both the magnificent landscape and nature of this isolated area and to get a feel for the traditional arctic way of life. On this tour we will set out from Tasiilaq -East Greenland‘s largest town - for a tour of Ammassalik Island powered by strong dogs and experienced mushers. With good luck we may be treated to the mesmerizing show of Northern Lights. This is a breath-taking tour that takes you deep into the arctic world of East Greenland.
