Whether it's culture or nature you're seeking, Greenland has the answer.
The Polar Circle Marathon is more than just a marathon - it's a journey through Greenland! Explore all that the country has to offer - from the dazzling northern lights to towering glaciers to the vibrant town of Ilulissat.
Wander down to observe the sled dogs and meet their mushers.
29 Oct, 30 Oct | 1.5 hours | 40 EUR
We willl begin our excursion at Arctic Living where Flemming, a local musher, will meet us outside next to his dogs. He will tell us about raising the pups, the expeditions he has been on, and mushing itself. We'll also be able to observe the dogs, but please remember that these are working animals and not pets - they are not meant for cuddling.
This excursion does not include dog sled riding, but will, unlike a dog sled riding tour, give a very thorough and interesting look into the history and life of dog sled mushers in Greenland.
