Today, we head out early for a dog sledding tour through the Safrigai trek to the Safrigai Fjord. The speed and tempo of the dog sled gliding across the snow and ice will make you feel like you are traveling back in time on this tour. As the town quickly fades into the distance behind you, the only sound you hear is the rhythm of the dogs breathing in unison and their feet pounding the snow packed landscape. The wind is whirling past your face and the smell of crisp, mountain air fills your lungs. There is a high chance that you will pass several fishermen utilizing traditional techniques and tools to catch fish for their communities. At the top of a hill, we dismount the sled to take in the view. Your eyes will widen with awe as you take in immense amount of sea ice that has traveled to this area from the North Pole. The calming silence and picturesque scenery amplifies why Greenland is considered one of the most magnificent places in the world for nature lovers.
After hopping back on the sled, we descend the hill to enter the Safrigai Fjord. On this ride you will experience the magnificent power of sled dogs as they charge ahead at full speed. Our expert mushers have perfected the art of safely maneuvering the sleds at this speed. This comfortable and safe joy ride is only topped by incredible view at the bottom of the descent. We take a short break for lunch packs, hot chocolate, tea or coffee that was brought along with us before heading to the coast of the island to capture stunning photos of icebergs, towering mountains and flowing ice sheets. On the journey back to Tasiilaq, we are greeted by the iconic mountain of Polheim on the right. By afternoon, we are back in town, heads still swirling from the adventure out in the wild. You will have the rest of the day at your disposal to relax, reminisce about your experience, and reenergize for the next days activity.
