Green Dog Svalbard has a staff of 10-12 guides year around.

Most of our guides stays for minimum 1 year and we employ new staff regularly.

While working for Green Dog, we offer a place to live at the dog yard or close to. All staff share the work-load, so the work routine involves guiding all the different tours we are offering and handling the dogs. It can be physically hard work and the winter darkness can be a mental challenge. But you also get the chance to live and work in high arctic nature with your international colleagues and 250 friendly dogs - and you get to meet a lot of interesting people.

  • Previous dogsledding experience - minimum 1 years mushing.

  • We prefer guides with life experience and we keep an average age of around 25-35 years amongst our guides. We are not interested in "partyguides", but responsible people who enjoys being in the nature.
