An exhilarating way to explore the world’s most beautiful, wintry landscapes!
From the snow-carpeted terrain of Europe’s northernmost regions, to the remote, arctic wildernesses of North America, dog-sledding has been used as a mode of transport by indeginous populations in some of the planet’s coldest destinations for thousands of years and is a truly unique and exhilarating way to travel!
The world’s largest and most sparsely-populated island, Greenland is a truly beautiful and fascinating place, characterized by wild and spectacular terrain, encompassing, hulking glaciers, giant fjords, snow-capped mountain ranges and charming villages.
Dog sledding remains an important cultural practice for the island’s indeginous Inuit population who have been using it as a means of transport for over 5 thousand years, and there is truly no better place on earth to try this unique activity.
For most destinations, the best conditions are during the winter, and early spring. However, northern Alaska offers great conditions all year round.
Most husky-sledding destinations are located in the far north where it is possible to see the northern lights, although this depends on the weather conditions and the time of year.
As the sleds are open-top, and temperatures are extremely cold, you will need to ensure you are wearing suitably warm clothing. Some operators will provide additional items such as boots and thermal suits, though this should be checked prior to your trip.
