Activity description

Come and experience the hardship and real beauty of a traditional expedition. Enjoy this magical expedition with man's best friend and your expedition member. Appreciate the shelter of a traditional expedition tent, a good fatty meal and a cup of hot chocolate heated up by a paraffin stove.

Get ready to be taken out on a classic expedition! You'll pack a big inuit sled and be dressed in cotton and wool clothes with Mukluks on your feet. Lastly you'll strap on your expedition skis and you're set for your big adventure!

As you travel along the polar dogs will pull hard, waving their tails in excitement. Deep valleys and majestic mountains, sea ice and clean silence. You're going to live 8 days of breathtaking views!

Since the dogs will be staying out for a month, you'll be transported from Longyearbyen to the camp site by snowmobile.

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.

The route will be adapted to your wishes, fitness level and weather conditions, as customisation is the team's forte!
