We start this trip with a short drive from Kangerlussuaq to lake Tasersuatsiaq from where we start a scenic hike to our base camp. Our base camp is situated at a beautiful lake in an area perfect for a musk ox safari. This area can only be reached by foot and is rarely visited by man. We will go kayaking looking for musk oxen and go ashore to get a closer look. We might even be so lucky to be able to observe musk oxen close by the shore directly from our kayaks.
