Musk Ox hunting

Musk ox hunting in Greenland

The Greenland Musk ox originates from North-East Greenland. During the eighties, animals were moved to South – Greenland, where they have prospered, due to very good environmental conditions. We obtain 30-40 trophy tags per year in this area and the numbers are increasing.

We offer summer hunting only in South – Greenland. All travel goes via Iceland and staying overnight in Iceland is often necessary.  We offer 7 - 8 days trips with 2 - 5 hunting days, depending on the number of hunters.

The Hunt
We scout for trophies by sailing along the coast in a 30-40 feet boat with a warm and comfortable cabin. When a trophy is spotted, we go to shore in a smaller open boat, to stalk and further evaluate the trophy. This is repeated until we have found a good old trophy bull that the client is happy with.

There are both steep and flat coastal areas.  Hunters can most often choose how hard terrain they want to deal with. We are the only outfitter in Greenland, working in an area, where you do not nesseccarily have to be very fit and walk your ass off.

Food & Accommodation

We operate from our lodge in Ivituut, when hunting Musk ox. Our lodge offers all comforts you can think of, as in your own home. We may spend 1 night at Hotel Narsaq on the way to the airport. This is the best hotel in the town of Narsaq. No tent camps, no outdoor toilets. We offer 3 meals per day, snacks, soft drinks.  Musk ox and reindeer are on the menu, if the clients wish to taste the game.

Other activities
Free time after trophies have been harvested can be spent sightseeing, hunting seals, sea angling or fishing for Arctic char. We will provide a 22LR rifle and fishing tackle at no extra cost. An extra Musk Ox trophy can also be considered, if available.
