Dogsledding is one of the traditional Greenlandic forms of transportation during winter.
A form of transportation that causes a lot of debate in terms of treatment of the Greenlandic sled dogs in the media, what I have come to see is a different world and a different perspective on things.
Yes these dogs are of special breed and the only dogs allowed North of the arctic circle in Greenland.
The breeding is rough and unusual to most non natives, but I have witnessed the impressive craft of the drivers the very close relationship between sled driver and dogs, a relationsship which both parties depend on to stay alive in the rough arctic climate. and the dogs actually do not seem to dislike what they are put through.
With that I hope you will enjoy this small but expanding collection, that contains perhaps one of the most fascinating forms of transportation during winter in Greenland.
