Caribou hunting in Greenland

It is hard to find places that are unique and impressive like Greenland. The extrordinary landscape and wilderness is something that you needs exploring and the Caribou hunting in Greenland is quite unique. We use a boat for traveling between areas which is ideal for sight seeing, you get to see enormous icebergs floating around. The Caribou stay mostly on the islands in the area where we sail, so we search for the right trophy and then the stalking or hunting begins.

Itinerary

There is so much to see in Greenland

Sightseeing around the icebergs where the ice cap meets the ocean is what you can expect to see on this trip. The mountain is popular for hiking, but if that's not your thing then you can go for a guided walk around the town and learn about Greenlandic culture and their food.

These sightseeing trips are flexible so the Viking settlement or other options can be done at the beginning of the trip or not at all.

Please note that weather and water level is the key factor in Greenland, so we may have to adjust our program according to any situation.
