Former Guide at Green Dog Svalbard

After graduating from University I spent long hours in the office working for big construction companies, but I knew that I don t want to live my life like this. So I started to travel around the world. After 5 years and 40 countries, I got to Alaska and saw a sleddog – it was the end of life I used to know.

I stubbornly applied in all kennels around North America, stating that I’m the best musher who has never been dog sledding. Big surprise for me was that I actually got a job and started to run doggies in Canmore, Alberta – Canadian Rockies. During the winter I realized that I wanted to become a better dog musher/handle so I applied all around Europe and got a job in Svalbard.

I absolutely love Svalbard and Greendog. The best experience in my life is to live and work with my pack of 30 dogs in the High Arctic all year around. It is wild, it is beautiful and it is fun.

Just join us for ride to see with your own eyes.
