Do you want to experience a musher's holiday?

Together we choose our teams, get them harnessed and put them on the line in front of our troll carts.

As soon as the last dog is in place, we are ready to go.

2 guests are driving together on each troll cart (1 driver and 1 passenger) and you can each drive half the way or switch places along the way just as you like.

With our dog-teams we will be cruising along the coastline, stopping for water at the rivers and taking photo stops at interesting places.

When we reach our destination, we park the dogs, get them well secured and then we can take a nature walk to a bird cliff and have time to explore the Fauna and Flora of the Arctic Tundra.

Somewhere along the way we will enjoy a simple expedition lunch surrounded by Svalbards amazing nature.

After our little excursion we drive back to the kennel where we give the dogs their well deserved dinner.
