Many of you who are dreaming of a holiday to Greenland are also imagining the thrill of gliding across an endless icy landscape propelled only by the paws of local husky dogs. Dogsledding is a once in a lifetime experience, but it can be challenging (even for the passenger!) and is not always glamorous. In episode 3 of The Insider’s Guide, Ujarneq takes on the Greenlandic winter at full throttle, to bring you all the inside information on how to prepare yourself for dogsledding.
You’ll learn how to make the best of your trip to Greenland from the perspective of a local: from preparing for flight delays, domestic travel and dogsledding, to those everyday practicalities like grocery shopping, and even how to embrace the transformational nature of our enchanting country. This video series is brand new and focused on giving you, the traveller, real, relevant, inside information on some of the most complicated aspects of travelling in Greenland.
