Basecamp Explorer have a 90 huskies that are eager to take you out on a trip while in Svalbard. On this adventure you will learn how to handle your own team of six dogs. They all have their own names and a friendly personality.
The Alaska huskies are the most social animals in Svalbard, and we give them just as much love and attention all year around.

The adventure is finished up with a warm drink in our trapper’s hut, and in good weather we can enjoy the snacks under a sun that never sets.
