Greenland is like a fairytale come true for the nature lover and hunter in us all. The magnificent nature is overwhelming. Something you will remember the rest of your life. Greenland offers pristine hunting districts, fresh air, there are no electricity pylons on the horizon, and the only sounds you hear are nature’s own. At night the stars are clearerthan you have ever seen before, unless they are eclipsed by the endlessly beautiful Northern Lights, which if you are lucky, can be see at these latitudes in their full glory. The hunt for musk ox is really exciting. This animal must be treated with respect, it can attack if it feels threatened. Hunters will be in the company of guides who have years experience of hunting musk ox, the districts and conditions in Greenland. There will always be somebody there who can speak English. It is possible to hunt for artic fox, artic hare and ptarmigan at no extra cost.
The hunt for musk ox is carried out on an eight wheeled (Argo 8) or ATV vehicle. These have proven to be more effective than using dog sleds. These vehicles are used to spot the game, once this is done the hunt begins. The stalk can take over a distance of 200 - 1500m.
Hunters will be met in Sdr. Stromfjord and driven 1 to 1.5 hrs to camp by snow scooter or similar.Hunters you should be have an average level of fitness. The hunting party will return to camp each evening. After the hunt our customers will be taken back to Sdr. Strøm by snow-scooter.
If the weather is favourable, it is possible to arrange a dog sled tour after the hunt.

At the start of the 60’s 27 musk ox were released near Kangerlussuaq - a hunting district with no borders covering 6,600 km2.
The population has grow over the last 40 years or so, and the population is estimated to be at least 7000 animals. The vegetation and feeding in the district is so good here that the musk ox grows 15% larger than in other parts of Greenland, fully grown bulls reaching 375 kg.
The hunting district is in a beautiful location by a large lake close to the Inland-ice, around 35km from Kangerlussuaq in West Greenland. Søndre Strømfjord or as it is called in Greenlandic - Kangerlussuaq - is transected by the Arctic circle, which means in summer it never really gets dark, while in mid-winter there is nearly no light apart from moonlight and the fantastic...Read more
We have a wonderful working relationship with Inuit Outfitting run by Mathias and Malene Ingemann. They were the first outfitters to arrange trophy hunting for tourists after the Greenland Home Rule opened up the possibility to do so back in 1996, and since then they have built up a lot of experience in this specialised field.Read more
