Greenland Muskox and Caribou Hunts

Our main muskox hunting camp in northern Greenland out of Kangerlussuaq is located 30 miles away from the nearest settlement, accessible only by helicopter. This way, we leave behind easily accessible areas with high muskox hunting pressure. The feeding conditions are excellent, and bulls are big.

This is a most unique and unusual escape from everyday life. Hunting in Greenland attract a group of like-minded people. People sharing experience on an isolated journey creates strong bonds and friendships.

This region has the highest density for muskox and Central Barren Ground Canada caribou in all of Greenland.

This remote hunting concession is untouched, and prior to our hunters, no modern hunter has ever taken a trophy bull in this area. Since 2012, our Greenland muskox hunting clients have enjoyed 100% success and recovery rate. The 30 miles helicopter transfer to our camp is what secures that 100% success rate for big mature trophies.

World Record caribou
“Besides filling both our Muskox and Caribou tags with world-class trophy’s, and a SCI new 502” world record, the scenery was spectacular and absolutely breathtaking. I was a completely satisfied customer. The hunt was well worth the 2-year wait.”

Typical Daily Schedule

Setting out from camp, we cruise the river through the lush valley in duck boats. This way we can cover a lot of country, searching for the largest bulls. From the river, we also hike up on the tops for caribou hunting, but they do also sometimes come down in the valley. After a successful hunt, you can enjoy the peaceful Arctic surroundings while hunting Arctic fox, Polar hare and ptarmigan. Or you can hunt an additional trophy bull on a trophy fee basis.
