Northern Lights Safari by Dog sled

with Greendog Svalbard

The darkness and the snow arrive at about the same time in Svalbard – and the white cover makes the polar night seem less dark. Dancing northern lights, glittering moonlight, and the dark skies contrast to the white snow cover is something you don’t want to miss out on!




After having harnessed the impatient dogs, the guide will lead you into the wilderness of Bolterdalen. The dogs are eager to go out on tour and we are sliding fast on the snow, it’s almost as if we are flying!

Out there in the polar night, we will switch off our headlamps and on a clear sky day, the shapes of the mountains will be very sharp and visible. If we look south, it will be a bit brighter on the horizon. The snow-covered landscape reflects the lights from the moon, the stars, and the northern lights. It is an amazing sight and it gives you a feeling of being in the middle of a fairytale.

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.

From 1/11 to 1/12, you can join us twice daily at the tour “Sled dogs in the polar night”.
