About the trip

Vi henter dere på hotellet og kjører til Bjørndalen, der hundene venter ivrig på oss.Du har mulighet til å hjelpe guiden med å sele på de 12-14 hundene og sette dem inn på linen som trekker vognen. Når alle hundene er spent fast, starter vi turen som går langs kysten av Isfjorden og inn mot Bjørndalen. Hold øynene åpne for her er det mye liv og røre! På turen har du chance til å se reinsdyr, polarrev, rype, sel og kanskje hvalross og hval. Fugleverdenen er godt representert med blant annet alkekonge, rødnebbtærne og tjuvjo.

På turen kommer vi vekk fra byen. Etter ca. halvannen time med hundekjøring kjører vi til vår hundegård. Her kan vi hilse på valpene, og kose oss med te og kaffe i den koselige tømmerhytta.

Hele turen tar rundt 3 timer, inkludert transport til og fra hotellene. Ha på gode og varme klær til å være ute, og si ifra på forhånd hvis dere ønsker å låne klær.
