Details

Visit our idyllic lodge in the untouched Tverrdalen. The only way to get there in summer is by foot. This trip provides a unique opportunity to experience the Svalbard wilderness in all its splendor, joined by our furry 4-legged friends.

Visit our idyllic lodge in untouched, silent Tverrdalen. The only way to get there in the summer is by foot. This trip provides a very special opportunity to experience the Svalbard wilderness in all its splendor joined by our furry 4-legged friends.

Day 1: We pick you up at your accommodation in Longyearbyen at 10:00 am Day 1 and drive to our husky kennel located 12 km outside Longyearbyen. Here we will inform you about the trip, equipment, and safety, pack our backpacks and meet our furry friends that will join us. The hike will lead us over mountain plateaus and glaciers with a spectacular view. We will descend over ice and rocks and climb a mountain pass before we reach our cozy lodge. Our furry friends can relax outside and serve as polar bear guards, while we enjoy the evening in front of the fireplace with a good meal inside the lodge with the Svalbard nature surrounding us.

Day 2: We enjoy the nearby surroundings with a light backpack. Hiking on the glacier just behind our lodge, exploring the moraine area or climbing a mountain top – all is in reach and we will still have time to relax and bond with our cuddly husky friends. If we are lucky and patient, we can maybe spot a polar fox or observe reindeers close by the cabin.

Day 3: We leave the lodge after breakfast, follow a gentle uphill incline to a mountain pass and a valley back to our starting point.at the dog yard. On the way we will cross little streams and rivers. We have good chances to spot reindeers around us and have a look at the Arctic flowers and plants. Expected arrival at your accommodation in Longyearbyen is between 4 and 6 pm.

You should be in average good physical form, able to carry a backpack for the first and last day between 10 -15 km. We will hike about 15km on day 1 and 3, while the 2nd day can be adjusted to the group and conditions.

The weather in the Arctic is unpredictable and can change within a few hours. With cold temperatures and wind the weather can be challenging.

Minimum age: 14 years. If younger contact us for a tailor-made family trip.

Included: Guide with necessary safety equipment, Sleeping bag for the lodge, all meals and rescue guarantee for Svalbard are covered during the trip.

Important information: Minimum number of participants is 2. In cases of only 1 participant the trip will be cancelled or completed with an additional fee.

We will send you an equipment-list before the start of the tour.
