About Greenland

Hunting in Greenland is a wonderful Arctic experience. Greenland has two hunting seasons Spring and Fall. In the Spring only Musk Ox can be hunted. In the Fall a combination hunt for Musk ox and Caribou is possible.

The outfitter has been conducting these hunts for a number of years and runs a very good operation. You will hunt with local 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 are generally very cold and physically demanding 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 muskox in this area are typically 15% larger in body size when compared to muskox 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, Denmark. For clients coming from North American you will need to arrive in Copenhagen and spend the night before taking your early morning flight on Air Greenland to Kangerlussuaq. On your return journey you will also have to overnight in Copenhagen before taking your flight home the following day. We strongly recommend planning a few days stay in Copenhagen before going to Greenland or on your way back as it is a beautiful European city and well worth seeing. Many of our clients have arranged for their wives and non-hunters to meet up with them in Copenhagen turning it in to a nice family vacation.

Spring Hunts

In the Spring season only musk ox can be hunted and a hunter can up to twoanimals o n 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.

Musk ox are abundant in the outfitters area 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. Other activities include a dog sled ride and a visit to the polar ice cap which is an unforgettable experience. While it cannot be guaranteed there is a good chance that you will get to see the Northern lights which is indeed a special sight.

You will be met by the outfitter on arrival in Kangerlussuaq and drive about two hours across the frozen fjords to camp. The hunt itself 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 proper layers of clothing and an outer seal skin jacket and overalls that can be rented from the outfitter it is quite comfortable.

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 typically 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. One needs to be prepared to hike in these mountains to hunt the Caribou and be in a good physical condition.

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.
