Join our polar heroes Barents, Nansen, Nobile on a 1 day dogsledding trip in Svalbard beautiful and interesting surroundings. All our dogs are named after polar heroes of the Arctic and Antarctic. Regardless of the weather; good or bad, starry sky, full moon, or northern lights, this will be a little different tour. The dogs will be your engine the next couple of hours and they will bring you on an adventure you maybe never have experience earlier. The nature is stunning and the landscape is covered by a white layer of snow.
Svalbard Villmarkessenter pick you up at the hotel of your preference in Longyearbyen. After getting dressed we will give you instructions of the dog sledding tour, about the route and you will learn the theory of driving dogs, for next step you will learn it by practicing. You will be two people per sledge, one person will be standing and the other sitting, there will be stops on the way, so the person sitting will have the chance to drive if they wish to. If you wish to drive your own sledge alone, the entire trip, it is possible by paying an additional cost. If so, it is important that our guests give us feedback about it in good time in advance.
Lunch and warm drink will be served on the way or back at our wilderness center, depending on the weather conditions that day. Everyone that needs can borrow a warm dress, shoes, winter hat and/or gloves.
