About Greenland

Hunting in Greenland is a wonderful Arctic experience. The hunts are conducted in the Spring and Fall seasons.

The outfitter has been conducting these hunts for a number of years and runs a very good operation. You will hunt with Inuit guides who know the species and the land and they will ensure that you have a safe and successful hunt.

Unlike most Arctic hunts which can be very cold and physically tough our hunts are conducted from a warm log cabin and even the Spring hunt is very bearable and can be done by hunters of all ages and physical condition.

There are two species of big game that can be hunted in Greenland. The caribou and the musk ox. It is not clear as to which species of caribou are hunted in Greenland as these animals were introduced at various times years ago. However they look very similar to the barren ground caribou. The musk ox in this area are typically 15% larger in body size when compared to musk ox found elsewhere as the forage is very good.

Small game that can also be hunted are snow hare and ptarmigan during the Spring season.

Getting there:

The best way to get to Greenland is via Copenhagen in Denmark. The price of the flight from Denmark to Greenland and back is included in your hunt cost and the booking of the flight will be done by the outfitter. We recommend planning a few days in Copenhagen before going to Greenland or on your way back as it is a beautiful European city and worth seeing for a few days.

Spring Hunts

The Spring hunt is for musk ox only and a hunter can take one or two animals on this hunt. This is the best time to hunt musk ox as the coat and hair is thick and you will get to experience the Arctic.

There are plenty of animals to select from and all hunters can be assured of getting a 100% shot opportunity. After your musk ox is down, time permitting you can hunt for snow hare and ptarmigan. A dog sled ride and a visit to the polar ice cap is also an unforgettable experience. While it cannot be guaranteed the Northern lights are often seen and this is indeed a special sighting.

The hunt is conducted using ATVs or snow mobiles. Once the animals are spotted a stalk on foot is conducted. Archery hunters also enjoy a very high success rate. While the temperatures are cold, with the correct inner layers of clothing and seal skin outer clothing which can be rented from the outfitter it is quite comfortable for both hunters and non-hunters as well.

The cabin has an indoor toilet and heated water can be used for washing up.

A typical itinerary is as follows:

Fly from Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq where the outfitter will meet you and drive you to camp, about 2 hours. You will arrive in time to hunt that afternoon and the next two full days. On day 4 you will return to Kangerlussuaq in time to catch your flight back to Denmark.

Dates of the hunt are March to early April

Fall Hunts

In the Fall hunt a hunter can do a combination hunt for musk ox and caribou.

The Fall hunt is conducted using small boats to cross the fjords and go along the shoreline. The musk ox are found feeding close to the shore and once spotted a stalk is done on foot. The caribou are more challenging to hunt as they are found at higher elevation in the mountains close to the fjords. And this involves climbing and walking in the mountains.

A typical itinerary is as follows:

Fly from Copenhagen to Kangerlussuaq where the outfitter will meet you and you will fly by helicopter to camp. You will arrive in time to hunt that afternoon and the next two full days. On day 4 or 5 depending on the hunt schedule you will return to Kangerlussuaq in time to catch your flight back to Denmark.

The cost of the helicopter charter is included in the cost of your hunt.

Dates of the hunt are August to early September.
