with Greendog Svalbard

This dogsledgetrip goes through beautiful Bolterdalen, which offers unique arctic scenery and good chances of observing artic wildlife, such as reindeer and ptarmigan.


Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and by car take you through beautiful Advent valley, to our wilderness kennel in Bolterdalen. Here you will change clothes and get a throughout briefing from the guide, before we harness the dogs and set off into the beautiful valley of Bolterdalen.

We are sledding in pairs and in front the guide will be mushing with two guests. We take turns in steering the slsedge, so all who wishes to steer can try it.

We are mushing next to the frozen riverbed, which is surrounded by majestic mountains. When we reach the morrain, the dogs will be excited going up and down hill and the fun will last all the way back to the kennel. Back at the kennel, we will meet the latest generation of puppies and the guide will offer hot drinks, warm waffles & brandy in our heated log cabin.

This is a wonderful trip for all, who wants to experience the beauty of Svalbard on a non-motorized mean of transport. No previous expereince is needed.

Dog sledding is a fantastic and also an authentic way to experience the Arctic. This trip will give you a good introduction to basic mushing and you will know the joy of working with sled dogs. The guide will be driving in front with two guests on his dog sled and others will follow, two and two. We all take turns in steering and sitting, but it’s also an option not to steer if you don’t feel like it.
