We will pick you up from your hotel in town and take you to the Green Dog kennel, which is around 12 km away from Longyearbyen. You will be properly dressed in coverall suit, mittens, hat & boots, before we pick up the dogs from the dog yard and continue by car to Foxfonna (approx. 400 metres above sea level), passing Mine 7 on the way. Your guide will help you harnessing and handling the dogs and attaching them to the sledge. In the moraine the sledding conditions are great and we drive our dog sledges while enjoying the fantastic view towards the surrounding valleys and Isfjorden. On the trip, the guide will drive the first sledge with two guests who will take turns at steering the sledge. Behind the guide sledge, sledges with two guests apiece will follow. The sledges are being pulled by 5-6 dogs each.
The trip is approximately 4 hours in total – including pick up/drop off at your hotel in Longyearbyen. You will be equipped with a suit, hat, mittens and boots. Remember sunglasses and sunscreen – the mountain sun is very strong !
