Green Dog Svalbard

About us

Green Dog Svalbard is located in Bolterdalen and being managed by Martin Munck & Karina Bernlow. They came to Svalbard after many years in East Greenland, where they made a living from hunting and tourism.

Green Dog is different from other commercial dogkennels at Svalbard, since the dogs are a mix between the Greenland dog and husky – and also since the family, consisting of 2 adults and 4 children – and all the guides – are living at the kennel year-round.

The dogkennel is divided up into smaller kennels, so each guide is in charge of his own kennel with 6 dog teams (30 dogs), which only he uses on tours. This means that the sled trips consist of relatively small groups of max 8 guests- and always with the guides own dogs.

Part of the dogfood is being caught by the couple themselves. Further, all doghouses and dog sledges are being built on spot. The dog sledge is a modernized edition of the Greenland hunting sled and all over the kennel, you will find traces of the family’s Greenlandic past. All of this creates a different and very personal atmosphere for the visitors.

It is not unusual that you’ll see Martin building a dog sledge or toys for the children – or guides cutting up seal meat for dogfood.

Green Dog is often visited by local school classes and kindergartens, which the place clearly shows, with its own trampoline, swings and sandbox. The pirate ship and the fortress, not to be forgotten! Here you find puppies year-round and this is something which puts a smile on the faces of all of our visitors.
