Trips

Winter

Dog sledge

Let a pack of strong dogs lead the way, as you enjoy the beauty of the breathtaking Winter landscape. In cooperation with local sledge drivers from the Aasiaat Dog Sledge Association, we arrange two separate dog sledge experiences. On both trips we provide transportation to the location of departure, as well as tea, coffee and cake for the trip.

Trip 1: A one hour ride around the island of Aasiaat, with a view of the Disco Bay.

Trip 2: From Aasiaat you cross over the frozen strait to ”the Hot Springs”, where you can drink from the clean spring water. This is a two hour trip.

*Customized overnight trips can be arranged.
