"...She is a fantastic, loving lady and I have yet not met anyone she couldn’t charm completely".
At Green Dog Svalbard, each guide is responsible for his own 30 dogs. In a very short time, those 30 dogs becomes your best friends. Most of your day is spend with them. Each of them are fantastic. They have their own personality and should be treated and handled different ways.
Getting Andrea into our family has been and is a great pleasure, she is incredibly good company and an amazing hiking buddy.

This is the story of when Ida, Ingeborg, Anette, Barbro, Guro and Monings traveled on a three-day dog trip on Svalbard. About when the world took a break. About laughter, cold temperatures (-35 chillfactor to be exact), silence, frost in the mustache, dogpoop and northern lights.
Days were going so fast and now it is already almost 2 years and I m happy and proud to be part of company like Green Dog. For us it is not job, it is lifestyle and pure passion to create experience which will stay with our customers for lifetime.
It was love at first sight, when we met Vegi at a dogsled trip with Green Dog in May 2017 and in September the same year, she came to us on the mainland. No doubt, we had to adopt this Lady!
It is late September and in the Advent Valley outside Longyearbyen autumn and winter meets. The tundra is deep red, the mountains have a new layer of powder on top.

That is how the days, weeks and months at 78 degrees north are dancing away and if you like this dance, it is difficult to stop. Hard to leave the Arctic.
