Greenland on all fours

It is also a place where ancient traditions are still maintained. The way of life mainly requires hunting and ice fishing in the winter and dog sledding as a means of transportation.
For visitors, dog sledding is a great way to experience the magnificent unspoiled landscape of this secluded area and as a fun way to learn about the traditional Arctic lifestyle. On this experience, we will depart from Tasiilaq for a tour of Ammassalik Island. We will see the Sermilik ice fjord, visit the small settlement of Tiniteqilaaq, where we will share a meal with a local family. The return trip will go through the center of Ammassalik Island. There we will have time to visit the town or take a walk (optional) with snowshoes to the valley of flowers. This is a phenomenal tour that takes you deep into the Arctic for a up close and personal view of the local culture.
