Tented Hunt 1:

This hunt is for Musk ox only from August to end of October near Kangerlussuaq west Greenland. A comfortable tented camp is set up on the Robinson River with separate tents for hunters, guides and a kitchen tent. The hunting is done on foot spot and stalk although with the abundance of game it’s unusual to walk more than 5 klm from camp across the Arctic tundra each day. Trophies and meat must be carried on foot so you need a good level of physical fitness for this hunt. In August and early September its daylight for most of the day so you’re hunting time can be greatly extended if you wish. After your musk ox is taken you take some time to fish for the famous Arctic char in the pristine rivers. Arrival is via Copenhagen with the return flight to Kangerlussuaq around 900 euros. For those hunters who don’t want the trouble of taking your own rifles you can hire rifles from the outfitter for 150 euro including ammo.

1 Musk ox only 5,200 euro
Non hunting companion 3,000 euro
Caribou (if opportunity) 1050 euro
