Adventure Tours in Greenland

More than three times the size of the state of Texas, Greenland carries the distinction of being the world’s largest island. Geographically, this glacial landscape is a part of North America, being separated from Ellesmere Island by a mere 26 kilometres; however, for administrative purposes, Greenland serves as an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark. Known for its vast stretches of tundra, deep coastal fjords, long mountain ranges, and massive ice sheets; Greenland is an outdoor playground for winter enthusiasts that are looking for a more rugged adventure. The island’s modern inhabitants are largely of Inuit descent, having migrated there from North America around 2500 BCE, and their traditional culture has historically coexisted with that of the Nordic settlers on the island. This has created a truly unique and resilient cultural experience that can be found nowhere else on earth.

Guided tours in Greenland are an epic adventure that will take you from picturesque coastal villages to rugged mountains and mammoth glaciers. The most popular methods for exploring this northern land are trekking across the tundra by foot, or travelling efficiently across the snowy landscape by dog sled. Temperatures in Greenland peak in July and drop well below freezing in the winter, meaning you’ll likely need to pack a few layers to stay cozy in this winter wonderland. If you are looking for a unique adventure in a rugged and lesser-travelled destination, then exploring the mountains and glaciers of Greenland should be at the top of your list. Check out these truly spectacular tours that we’ve put together in Greenland.

The Dog Sledding in East Greenland Tour invites you into the unique lifestyle of dog sledding between isolated communities in East Greenland. Greenland has few roads and none that connect the villages, so dog sleds, snowmobiles, boats, and helicopters transport travellers around this icy land. This adventure tour reels you into the traditional way of life. While travelling by dog sled across vast snowy lands, you’ll witness Inuit traditions, visit isolated communities, and very likely get to see the northern lights. The dog team will get a rest mid-week while you will explore the Sermilik Coast on snowshoes. Take this tour as an opportunity to unplug from your connected world—there’s no cell signal out here.
