    This 12-day Arctic Cross-Country Group skiing tour with sledges will take you to the amazing and isolated Inuit Villages in the eastern coast of Greenland. 

    If you ever dreamed about getting to know the Ammassalik region of Greenland, this is your best option. We’ll guide you across an ancient dog sledding trail, where we’ll go beside impressive tower icebergs.

    All along the way we’ll be staying in the Inuits Villages, which are one of the world’s most recently known civilizations. Plus this very scanty populated area is full of natural wonders.

    We’ll meet in Reykjavík  and fly to Kulusuk, from where we’ll start our journey. From there on we’ll be cross-country skiing for 6 to 8 hours every day pulling our sleds across the Sermiligaaq fjord and through a small glacier and several mountain passes.

    During the trip we’ll be staying in tents under the northern sky, which is the best way for spotting the famous northern lights! We’ll also stay in remote cabins, where you’ll get to know the people from the area.

    We’ll stay in four villages before arriving to the very colorful capital town of the region, Tasiilaq. And with two nights in each village we’ll get to know  the daily life and culture of the local Greenlandic people.

    So send us a request to book this 12-day Arctic cross-country group ski expedition across Greenland and get ready for an amazing adventure!
