Activity description

Join the expert team for a dog sled excursion of a lifetime that you can customise to your needs. This will be a ride you'll never forget!

Naturally dogsledding is all about the dogs and so the first thing to do after your arrival at the kennel in Bolterdalen, is to get to know your four-legged companions. Just make sure those heavy love bugs don‘t topple you over and lick you all over your face.

You'll be dressed in expedition cotton, wool clothes and Steger Mukluks to keep you warm and comfortable. If there's two of you going together then you'll be sharing a sled, which gives you both a chance to sit back, relax and just enjoy the spectacular scenery while the other is driving.

Your qualified guide will be accompanying you on his own sled. If you are going alone then your guide will be riding with you and you can drive as much as you want, or spend the day as his passenger - the choice is entirely yours.

If you want to experience the old style of exploration travelling, then your guide will take you out on a big sled. All the dogs will be in one team and you'll strap on your Amundsen skis and travel along with the dogs the old-fashioned way.

The routes are adapted to suit your fitness level, which parts of the land you would like to discover and, of course, the weather conditions.

Either way one thing is for certain: the team will be doing their very best to make this the best and most memorable experience of your entire stay in Svalbard!
