Details

Basecamp Explorer have a 90 huskies that 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.
