Tasiilaq 02


The first thing we noticed upon landing at Tasiilaq was all the sled dogs near the helipad. Many of these are Greenland dogs a large husky-type breed that are used as working dogs on polar bear and seal hunting expeditions. I was told that the wooden boat on the left of this picture used to ferry passengers from Kulusuk airport in the summer until it caught fire and was abandoned. Now there is only the helicopter service.
