Welcome to Uummannaq
You’ll arrive to Uummannaq in the late afternoon and dine together with the local hunters. Then, we’ll shortly brief you about the plans for the following days.
The start of your fisher/hunter journey
After breakfast, we’ll take a dog sled trip to the winter hut to drop the equipment. Then, we’ll take another dog sled trip to drop the long line for fishing Halibut.
We’ll start the day with a fun dog sled trip to check our fishing line and pick up our catches! After this, we’ll visit the Ikerasak settlement, share amazing stories and have dinner with the locals.
Hunting & Dog Sledding
On this day we’ll take a dog sled trip to the gletcher fiord system to hunt seals and maybe even find snowshoe hares, polar foxes or grouses. Then, we’ll go to our winter hut and sleep in Uummannatsiaq.
Dog Sledding to the glacier
We’ll start the day dog sledding to Sermilik Gletscheren and will watch the glacier from a short but safe distance. Then, we’ll dog sled to another hut where we’ll be speding the night.
LET THE DOGS GUIDE YOU BACK
We’ll take a dog sled trip from our base camp back to Uummannaq. During the trip you’ll feel the fresh air and enjoy the beautiful landscapes around us. You’ll have the rest of the afternoon free to rest, explore or discover on your own.
CITY WALK TOUR AND DEPARTURE
We’ll take you on a city walk tour around the Uummannaq fjord and in the afternoon you’ll depart from Uummannaq. Hoping you leave with amazing memories of your week in the Greenland nature.
