Activity description

Polar dogs, deep valleys and majestic mountains, sea ice and clean silence, only interrupted by the breathing of running dogs, the sled and skis gliding on the hard-packed snow surface. Take your time to enjoy 5 days of breathtaking views!

Experience one of the most spectacular parts of nature you will ever find, together with the incredible and loyal creatures called man's best friend. 

If you want to really experience the wild, astonishing beauty of Svalbard, there is no better way than going back in time. Pack a traditional inuit sled with a tipi tent and pemmican trail food, strap on your skis and give the polar dogs the command to go.

Are you ready for a real adventure?
You'll go out on a traditional inuit sled and a strong team of big expedition dogs, a tradition that has been maintained for centuries.

Dressed in expedition outer clothes, wool and Steger Mukluks, you'll put on expedition skis and travel along with the dogs. When you get tired you can jump on the runners to rest for a while. You can decide the route with the help of Philipp, adapting it to suit your mushing expectations and what you might want to see.
