The Real Sirius

Meet the real Sirius Sledge Patrol and their amazing dogs. The characters and dogs from The Ice Star are based on the real life Sirius Sledge Patrol and the areas they patrol in Greenland, but with a lot (can’t emphasise this enough) of artistic licence and drama. Here’s the link to film maker Morten Hilmer.

If you’re looking for the real patrol, this video (in Danish) does a fantastic job of revealing the lives of the men and dogs on patrol. If you’re looking for a thrilling read based on the patrol, The Ice Star is available for pre-order from Amazon at a reduced price.
