Availability: March 5th - 8th, 2018
The perfect tour for adventure hunters who want to experience the arctic winter. The hunting brings you into the remote arctic winter wilderness. It is hunting in extreme conditions with temperatures from around 0°C to -40°C. It is an adventure in the world’s “last frontier”.
The hunting is by ATV/snowmobile and on foot on a spot and stalk hunt. Depending on conditions, you will travel on ATVs or snowmobile to the hunting area, after spotting the animal you start a stalk on foot. Hunters often come close to big arctic musk ox during the hunt. The last part of the hunt is exciting and can often test the hunter’s nerve system! The hunting takes place under extreme arctic winter conditions; therefor the hunter’s physical health has to be good. The hunting camp is approx. 45 km from town, in the middle of the wilderness, to get there the frozen fjord is crossed on an ATV or snowmobile.
