Divided into zones of Tasiilaq, formerly Ammassalik (Kulusuk Airport) and, further north, Scoresby Sund (Constable Point airport), this is the most mountainous part of Greenland whose few inhabitants, isolated from the world until a century ago, have retained their traditional style of life, including the use of sled dogs to go hunting during the long winters. As for Scoresby Sund, this is the world's largest fjord, with exceptional icebergs and polar wildlife. To visit and enjoy all this becomes a reality during a week on board of a sailing boat with stops for hiking excursions in the most interesting areas.
Ammassalik is possibly the best part of all of Greenland for backcountry skiing before the arrival of summer, either on day excursions with nights back in a comfortable bed or in a consignment of several days dragging a "pulk" (sled) by glaciers and mountains that give access to unsurpassed views of both the Inlandis as well as the sea ice. Besides the dogsled itineraries, Ammassalik is getting well known for undertaking Heli-Skiing with a base on the island of Kulusuk.

Environmental sustainability. We believe in a responsible tourism with unspoilt nature of Greenland, so all our trips are planned to have the least possible impact on the environment.
Safety. All our guides are expert about Greenland and know when either it is or it is not convinient to carry out an activity. Our safety records are unmatchable.
Local population. Our Inuit Climate Change Patrol ensures the maintanance of Inuit traditions by involving local people in utilization of a sustainable tourism.
To collaborate in the deepest knowledge of the most unfamiliar places on the planet and do so without affecting ecosystems. This is the philosophy that marks the Inuit Windsled Project, the only totally ecological vehicle designed for research in Polar lands.
Based on the ancient knowledge of the Inuit peoples, the Windsled developers have managed to create a means of transportation that combines tradition with modern means through kites that harness aeolian energy.
Inuit Climate Change Patrol;
In Thule today sled dogs are still used and the inhabitants go in search of their livelihood in cloth-lined kayaks, but we are witnessing the last generation of true Inuit hunters. Most of these people are between 45 and 60 years old and the next generation aren’t continuing in these traditions… Are we witnessing the last dynasty of the Kings of Thule?
This fear is the germ of the Inuit Climate Change Patrol, current project led by Ramon Larramendi (founder of Greenland.net)
