Arctic Dog Sledding - Svalbard Husky

Book

The best way to experience the beauty and endlessness of the Arctic landscape is on a dogsled. During this time, the light has returned from the long polar night and everything is awake again. As always, our huskies are ready to run.

The best way to experience the beauty and endlessness of the Arctic landscape is on a dogsled. During this time, the light has returned from the long polar night and everything is awake again. As always, our huskies are ready to run. When you join us for the tour, you’ll get to meet a lot of happy dogs and learn how to prepare your own team before leaving on an adventure.  

When you arrive to the dog yard, your guide will give you an introduction to the dogs and tell you about our dogsledding lifestyle. You’ll have the chance to walk around the yard and cuddle with the dogs, who are always eager to make new friends. One of the best parts of dogsledding is connecting with your dog team, so you’ll learn how to harness your own dogs and drive the sled. Once we’re ready to go, we will drive out into the wilderness and into one of the many valleys surrounding us.

During the trip you will experience the power of the dogs and their passion for running, all while traveling through the wide-open Arctic. You might even have the chance to see other wildlife such as reindeer or foxes wandering by. Once the dogs have taken us home to the yard, we’ll put the dogs back at their houses before warming up in our cozy BBQ hut with hot drinks and biscuits.

- Sled trip duration: 1 - 1,5 hours
- This is a physical activity where you get involved in handling the dogs. Please contact us if you are pregnant.
- Minimum age limit: 8 years
- You will be provided with thermal suit, gloves, hat and winter shoes. We also have headlamps and goggles if it's windy with snow.
- Minimum number of participants: 2
