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.
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.
