Greenland is traditionally a hunting culture, where the cycle of the animals, have been essential for the survival of the tribe. This tradition is still noticeable to a very high degree, in all aspects of life, and in all cities and settlements in Greenland.
As trophy hunting guides, we are very humble about this, and we do everything we can to respect the traditional hunting methods, and at the same time give our guests a completely unique hunting experience, in the Greenlandic mountains.
Hunting in Greenland will be experienced as very different from hunting in Denmark and central Europe and, in particular, very different from a trophy hunt in Africa and other major destinations.
This is wild and largely untouched nature. Here it is the weather, wind and the animals that are in charge, and we are the guests.
In the areas we hunt, there is virtually no infrastructure, which of course also places great demands on safety equipment and signalig devices.
The terrain is very hilly and in places quite impassable. You must be able to hike between 10 and 20 km a day up to 1000 meters in altitude and then you must expect to be able to carry your reindeer back down from the mountain. A large prize bull may well weigh 75 to 100 kg.
It is important to wear good hiking boots that are well worn, as well as sensible hunting clothes that can cope with snow, rain and sleet, but can also cope with sun and heat. The weather can be very changeable, so you can quickly get caught with the wrong clothing.
The terrain is very open, so we typically shoot at slightly longer distances than in Europe, so it would be a good idea to train a little at distances of up to 200m, if possible. (we use 308 WIN on our rental rifles)
