National Geographic Traveller (UK) has teamed up with Air Greenland to offer an incredible nine-day trip to magical Arctic landscapes
Take in the epic scenery passing silently by on a dog-sledding adventure. For thousands of years, humans and their dogs have lived together in this harsh and stunning part of the world. The sled dog is an important part of Greenlandic culture — once the only means of transportation when the landscape is frozen.
Snow & stillness
Greenland’s landscapes are magical; the snow and the tranquillity breathtaking. Blue skies, blinding white snow, packs of sled dogs and the chance to watch the Northern Lights unfold in the night sky are just some of the sights and experiences awaiting you on a winter trip to Kangerlussuaq and Sisimiut.
A Northern Lights tour is included. Kangerlussuaq is the perfect spot — the stable weather ensures clear skies. The tour ventures into the tundra landscape, free from artificial light, to marvel at the ultimate show by Mother Nature. Later, back in a warm room, listen to the guide’s stories while enjoying a Greenlandic coffee with a touch of Northern Lights.
A nine-day winter trip for two to Kangerlussuaq and Sisimiut. Includes flights from London to Greenland via Copenhagen, hotel stays, breakfast, a dog-sledding adventure, Northern Lights tour, and a dinner at Hotel Sisimiut (excluding drinks). greenland-travel.com/7050
Deadline: 31 October 2017 at 23.59 GMT
