Ice Fishing in North Greenland

A special winter experience is a ride on a dogsled out to the fishing holes on the frozen fjords of North Greenland. Many local fishermen still have their daily workplace here.

In Uummannaq it is only a few kilometres drive to the first fishing holes in the fjord. In Ilulissat the traditional ice fishing has diminished in recent years, as the fjord is often ice-free in winter.

Remember to bring a good lunch box and hot coffee. The temperature can easily sneak under minus 20 degrees.
