My daughter Victoria and I traveled to Svalbard in the fall of 2019 with a few friends. It’s a place I have dreamed of going to for a long time and I don’t regret a second of it. It’s the place where your pulse immediately goes in resting mode, when the mighty mountains approaches the flights – the air so fresh that it freezes in the cheeks. I was overwhelmed.

It all started with a call of the Arctic: it sent me to East Greenland as a 15-year-old teenager and at the same time, Martin started his dog sledding career on Svalbard, which then led him to become a member of the Sirius Dog Sled Patrol in Greenland.

The Arctic Experience​

At Svalbard 78° North​

”Something hidden, go and find it.
Go and look behind the ranges.
Something lost behind the ranges.
Lost and waiting for you. Go!”

Rudyard Kipling »The Explorer« (1898)


Just imagine it … and suddenly you are there!

Welcome to the Arctic, welcome to the wilderness and welcome to the trip of a lifetime!

Whether your path leads our way in summer or winter, during the polar night or under the midnight sun, we will do our utmost to give you an extraordinary experience and share our arctic passion with you. For us it is not just a job, it is a lifestyle and pure passion to create experiences that will stay with our visitors for a lifetime. Imagine that you are pulled by mighty dogs through the stunning scenery of the high Arctic. The moon is guiding your path and the bright northern lights are flickering in the sky. It is just as if we are flying! Discover yourself on a dog-pulled sled, soundlessly sliding over the new fallen snow; the ringing from the dog collars, while the dogs’ paws are hitting the track. And all that is left is the sound of silence.


… What is it about Svalbard and the raw nature that makes us almost obsessed and makes us want to return again and again? A longing. A mood. The light. The cold. The silence. The colors. When we are out in this nature, the wilderness, it is as if our senses come alive again. As if something clicks into place and we become whole individuals again. We use the senses in a completely different way here in the ice. We are present. Keeping up. We are alive.

And the summers! When the valleys blossom with arctic flowers, the whistle of migrating birds fills the air and the midnight sun patrols the sky in almost identical circles. Imagine a dog pulled wagon along the stunning coast of Bjørndalen, seal heads curiously looking at you from the sea, while numerous numbers of little auks are filling up the bird cliff and the blue sky above it. We hike over glacier, down the mountainside and across the Adventvalley, always in the company of a happy four-legged companion. At the end of August, the sun goes below the horizon for the first time and after this, we move quickly into the polar night.

… We climb down into a small opening in the glacier. Down there, the ice glows blue in the light from the headlamp. A pure blue color. Some people have this color of eyes. Otherwise, it is rarely this ten-thousand-year-old color from the ice. We reach the end of the cave. Deep under the ice we stand, 30 meters below the ground. Shall we turn off the headlamps and see how dark it really is in here? Marcel asks. We do. Then we stand there with our eyes open and see nothing. We are just taking it all in. It’s as if the old ice is sharing all its wisdom with us there in the dark. We switch the headlamps back on and climb up and out into the daylight and the young snow. The dogs welcome us back.

Green Dog Svalbard A/S

Karina & Martin

As a sleigh traveler, you encounter the truth of an era of life itself. You embark on a part of your life’s journey as the loner who has burned all bridges to society, and along the way feel both the coldness of life, its restless quest, its beauty and joys in a stronger/more powerful form. And like a dying person, you also dream on the sleigh journey about what will come when the trip is over. Constantly it is with you in the long track – this feeling of correspondence between the sleigh journey and life, and therefore the sleigh journey becomes something quite different from other journeys: a clarification, a calm by – perhaps for the first time – having full and direct contact with it the true function of living, and only that/nothing else. A joy at how beautiful and easy it is to travel on this exciting journey of life, where you are constantly drawn towards the unknown by your innate, powerful urge to discover, your desire to experience new things, find riddles and their solution.
