The goal for the trip is Spitsbergen Expedition Lodge,a new and well-equipped cabin which is beautifully located in Brentskaret. From the cabin we can enjoy the wild landscape– a snow-covered universe where hunters and trappers have lived and hunted throughout history.
The eager polar dogs will drag the sleds loyally through Spitsbergen’s amazing valleys, up narrow river paths and over soft, snow covered plains.
The entire day is spent outdoors with the dogs. As evening approaches you can truly enjoy the Arctic night in a cosy cabin in front of the fireplace.
The lodge is cosy with four bedrooms which sleep up to 10 guests on comfortable bunks, a simple bathroom, gas cooking facilities in the kitchen and a great fireplace. We will stay here for two nights before returning to Longyearbyen.
Our expeditions are always led by experienced guides, and the polar bears will be kept away by the dogs and trip flares.
You do not need to have experience in dog sledding. No previous winter camping experience is required, just an adventurous spirit! However, you should be in average good physical condition to participate on this trip. The participants will be asked to help out with the camp, feeding of the dogs, preparations for the trips etc.
The weather in the Arctic can change within hours and it might be both cold and windy - even down to -5 to -10° C in May and June.
The guide will take care of the guest's safety, and will bring all necessary safety equipment.
