Northern lights safari with dogsledge, 3,5-4 hours,November-February

The darkness and the snow arrive at about the same time in Svalbard - and the white cover makes the polar night seem less dark. The features of the landscape are very visible on days with clear sky and moonlight, and the soundless way you move when dogsledding is simply an amazing experience. The sledges don’t need to get far away from the dog kennel before the stars and northern lights shine very clear overhead. Throughout the summer and fall, the dogs have been pulling dogcarts along the road and they are extremely happy to get fresh snow under their paws again. Eating snow and rolling over in the snow, polar dogs are almost a bit strange in their joy over the new-fallen snow... Join us for the first sled trips of the season and experience the newly-created winter wonderland. If we are in luck and its sky clear , we may see the Northern Lights.

You will be picked up at your accommodation and taken to Green Dog (approx. 12 km outside Longyearbyen). Here you will be equipped with clothes and boots for the trip. You will meet the dogs and be taken through what you need to know before we start putting harnesses on the dogs.

In pairs you will take turns mushing (driving a dog sledge team) a team of 5-6 dogs. It is a perfect trip for those who would like to experience dogsledding but do not have too much time available. 

The trip goes through beautiful Bolterdalen, which offers unique arctic surroundings, including a chance of observing  ptarmigan and reindeer, even in the darkness.

This trip does not require any previous experience with dogsledding.

After the trip , you can meet our puppies and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with a bisquit and a brandy in our heated russian cabin.
