About the trip

Dog sledding is a summer activity, as there is no snow for an ordinary sled ride. We will pick you up at your hotel and take you by car to our kennel in Bolterdalen, which is located 12 km from Longyearbyen. Here the dogs wait excitedly, but first it’s time to change: suit, boots and mittens. We then greet the dogs and strap them on. Now we are ready to buckle up for the dogs and start the trip.

On this trip all guests drives a cart in pairs of 3, with 6-7 huskies in front.

The trip goes through beautiful Adventdalen towards Endalen, which offers unique arctic scenery and often lots of reindeer! The dogs pull eagerly and we stop several times along the way to give them water.

The colors of the vegetation in Adventdalen, in contrast to the mountains and the sky, in combination with the clear arctic air, are refreshing to the eye and mind. After the tour, we go to the main kennel and enjoy a hot drink and maybe a brandy in our heated log cabin. Your guide will also show you our youngest generation of Green Dog puppies!
