Be an arctic adventurer and ride the old snowmobile track across the frozen sea to reach Oqaatsut: an authentic Inuit settlement (where less than 40 hunters and fishermen live all year around). This 3-hour tour includes heart-pumping snowmobile riding, snacks and coffee/tea at a the settlement.
The snowmobile guided tour takes about 3 hours and starts in front of Hotel Arctic and follows the old trail to the north crossing lakes, frozen fiords and hills with breathtaking views of Disko Bay and Disko Island. Finally we cross the frozen sea to reach Oqaatsut (1 hour away from Ilulissat by snowmobile) where you will have a break to drink coffee or tea, eat snacks and discover the traditional settlement and its inhabitants’ way of living.
We ride back to Ilulissat taking a different route to explore the back country, visiting a spectacular frozen waterfall and the dramatic rock cliffs that dominate the scenery.
If conditions do not allow to go to Oqaatsut, we offer you an alternative with unbeatable scenery. We go up the mountains, see dogsleds doing their route to ice-fish in the icefjord, and reach a series of viewpoints of Ilulissat, Disko Bay and the Ice Cap.
