You will be fully equipped Arctic sleeping bag, sleeping mat, sledge outfit of nylon, boots , so that you are only responsible for bringing a minimum of extra clothes and other equipment. On this 6-day-long sledge journey, there can be one or two guests on each sledge besides the guide who is driving the sledge. We do offer the option of just having one guide and one guest per sledge, but we know from experience that it is much more enjoyable with three people.
Along the route there are hunting huts scattered throughout the area, where we will cook Greenlandic food in the evening. A primus or two can easily heat up the hut and make it nice and cosy. Most nights though we will overnight in our tents. Before and after the journey you will stay at the local guesthouse in Ittoqqortoormiit Scoresbysund. The guesthouse, located in the heart of town, has TV, shower, washing machine and a well-equipped, modern kitchen for you to cook your meals.
Please keep in mind that it is a self-catering guesthouse. Later, we will meet at the tourist office where you will be equipped for the sledge journey. It is possible to store your luggage at the office the next morning if you do not want to bring everything along on the trip. You will be picked up at the guesthouse and escorted to the sledges where your guides will await you. The sledges will be prepared and the dogs will beput in front of the sledges, excited to start the journey.
We will divide into teams — each sledge is being pulled by a dog team of Every day, the trip will start a bit dramatically, since the dogs are very impatient in the mornings — especially on this first day of the journey. We will start out on the fjord ice and head for Kap Hope, a deserted village 12 km from Ittoqqortoormiit. We will make a short stopover there, which will give you time to take a look at the village. Afterwards, we continue on the ice and turn into the mouth of Hurry Fjord.
From here it is a nice stretch on sea ice to our next destination and the dogs will eagerly pull the sledge. We will stop for lunch at a small cabin at Dom Brava. There is also the chance of spotting seals on the fjord ice, and with a little luck, our guides may catch a seal for dinner.
