About this hunt

We offer a 4 days Caribou hunt near Kangerlussuaq, West Greenland. The hunt bring the hunters into the real arctic wilderness, this is a hunting adventure in the worlds “Last Frontier”. Our hunting camp is remote and close to the magnificent Ice Cap. The camp is equipped with all necessary gear and placed in the center of Caribou land. We trek to the caribou herds and spot the strong bucks and then the hunt begins. We trek light and if necessary we put up a flycamp for the night, normally we have time to trek back to the base camp. September Is a good time for Caribou hunting because of the upcoming rutting season and because the Caribou has cleaned velvet off the antlers.

An Amazing Hunt Above the Arctic Circle

This is a real adventure hunt. You will be travelling down frozen fjords, river, lakes, and the rocky overland terrain of western Greenland. Old muskox bulls are abundant as the locals selectively harvest only the cows and calves for meat. Caribou are numerous as well but you will not see any large bulls at this time if year (3x3 or spikes were typical). The small game hunt was exciting and very challenging, we saw a good number foxes including both white and black versions right outside of camp. Camp itself was comfortable and food was satisfying. I would recommend taking a caribou each day for fresh meat in camp as they are very delicous and Thomas does an excellent preparation.

This is nothing against the hunt itself, but travel to Kangerlussuaq can be a bit complicated especially in winter when flights are less frequent. It can also be expensive if you have to spend a few extra days in Kangerlussuaq - make sure you stop in the duty free shop to load up before leaving the main terminal.

Be cautious

Nice muskox and nice country.

We stopped and looked at Raindeer and small game but didn’t hunt them because outfitter wanted to hunt muskox first. I saw rain deer behind camp the first day but he wouldn’t let me hunt them. Never did get a rain deer and only one of the small game.
