Walking amongst Giants

* Requires 1 night at Igloo Lodge

This excursion is a combined snow mobile and snowshoe adventure. The excursion begins from Igloo Lodge, from here, we go by snow mobile to Aattartoq – the local hunter and fishermen community base throughout the winter. It is a beautiful drive, with numerous unique and spectacular views that greets us on each mountain top. We have repeatedly view of “Sermeq Avannarleq”, the dead glacier and the enormous ice sheet in the background.

We arrive at “Attartoq” after approximately 40 minutes’ drive. Here we are met by the frozen fiord Sikuiuitsoq. From the meter thick sea ice icebergs emerge in distinctive formations with nuances of blue and shinning white. But the area offers more than ice, in the cabins by the fishing grounds local fishermen and hunters find shelter from the darkness and the cold. Close by the sledge dogs rest on the sea ice.

We attach our snowshoes at arrival and give ourselves plenty time to move among the icebergs – the Giants of Greenland. We also get insight in the life as a hunter/fisherman in present Greenland, before we return to Igloo Lodge.

The excursion is an extraordinary possibility to experience a unique part of Greenlandic nature and culture at the same time.

Snowmobile Extended

* Requires two nights in Igloo Lodge

This extended snowmobile tour takes you deep into the backcountry around Igloo Lodge.

We go off the groomed tracks and into the endless landscape of desolate mountains and lakes that continue as far as the eye can see. 
Out here, we hunt for the most beautiful peaks and best view points the area has to offer - it doesn't get any better. When we start the trip from Igloo Lodge, it allows us to get further into the wilderness in less time. 

It's all about a genuine adventure for those of you who want to go "off the beaten track" and who love a little action.

A packed lunch is enjoyed where it tastes best - outdoors in the snow in good company.
