About the trip

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and by car take you through beautiful Advent valley, to our wilderness kennel in Bolterdalen. Here you will change clothes and get a throughout briefing from the guide, before we harness the dogs and set off into the beautiful valley of Bolterdalen.

We are sledding in pairs and in front the guide will be mushing with two guests. We take turns in steering the slsedge, so all who wishes to steer can try it.

We are mushing next to the frozen riverbed, which is surrounded by majestic mountains. When we reach the morrain, the dogs will be excited going up and down hill and the fun will last all the way back to the kennel. Back at the kennel, we will meet the latest generation of puppies and the guide will offer hot drinks, bisquits & brandy on our heated log cabin.

This is a wonderful trip for all, who wants to experience the beauty of Svalbard on a non-motorized mean of transport. No previous expereince is needed.

Magical experience!

When we visited Svalbard, we had the great pleasure of experiencing the landscape through Green Dog Svalbard. They are incredibly professional and also very friendly. It is impressing to meet the dogs and slide through the nature on a dog sledge. We are already dreaming about revisiting Green Dog. Thank you, it was a great experience!
