Here is a unique tour - Dog sledding for two days in the winter

Greenland’s East Coast - remote even by Greenlandic standards - offering exciting insights into this unique and exotic land

You note the bays and harbors filled with icebergs as you fly in, but soon see the small villages of Kulusuk with its brightly colored houses. They’re modern looking with electricity, running water, and people are talking on cell phones. You notice the dogs whose barking fills the air, see sleds in the front yards, and soon realize that this is a traditional hunting society. The little harbors are full of boats which seem too small to travel with the icebergs which are swept inland along the rugged rock coast. It’s been only 100 years since the first Europeans “discovered” East Greenland! Ice and landscape has long kept it isolated from the rest of the country -- even today, East Greenland consists of only two towns and the worlds largest national park. East Greenlanders speak a distinctive dialect and have cultural traditions and crafts which are uniquely different from the rest of Greenland..
Yet because of its proximity to Iceland, East Greenland is the place most visitors find easiest to get to. We can suggest several different ways to sample East Greenland, from a day tour from Iceland, a multi day exploration of Kulusuk and Ammassalik, or through a 7 or 9 day combo package with a few interesting days in Iceland and then some days in East Greenland. Hardest part is choosing the package that’s best for you.

Kulusuk Visit
A day in East Greenland

If you can only squeeze one day into your schedule for Greenland it’s still better than not going at all! You can experience a bit of Inuit Greenland on a one day excursion to Kulusuk.
This all starts with a two hour flight from Reykjavik to the east coast of Greenland. Once on the ground at Kulusuk, you’ll have a guided walking tour to the village of Kulusuk on Cap Dan. The one day tour is great for clients who are in Iceland for other activities.
Kulusuk Classic One-day tour includes flights, (with a light meal served both ways) a guided tour of the fishing village of Cap Dan with some time for independent exploration of this village of 360 souls. Weather permitting there is a demonstration of the traditional arts of kayaking and drum dancing.

These prices are with air only from Iceland to Greenland
June 1-14 & Aug21-Sept 11 $701
