Visit our idyllic cabin in untouched, silent Tverrdalen. The only way to get there is by foot, skiing or dog sledding since motorized transportation is not allowed here. This trip provides a very special opportunity to experience the Svalbard wilderness in all its splendour with the help of our furry four-legged friends.
Day number 1 goes through wide valleys and over glaciers. Lunch will be served close to a very beautiful ice cave which we will visit. Thereafter, we continue over a mountain pass with spectacular views before we sled down to our cozy cabin in Tverrdalen where no other human installation exists. Here, we enjoy the fire in the oven and relax with a lovely meal while our faithful huskies are placed outside around the cabin to serve as our trustful polar bear guards. When darkness arrives, the non-existing light pollution from human settlements makes this the ideal place to explore northern lights and the amazing surroundings!
Day number two, we leave the cabin and dogsled home taking another route to explore even more of Svalbard’s fascinating landscapes.
We pick you up at your accommodation in Longyearbyen at 10 am Day 1 and drive to our husky kennel located 12 km outside Longyearbyen. Here, we will inform you about the trip, equipment and safety. Then we dress you up with warm clothes and shoes, get the sleds ready and harness the dogs. The trip is a round trip with the night spent in our cabin in Tverrdalen.
Day 2 we will take another route home and expected arrival at your accommodation in Longyearbyen is approximately 6 pm. You do not need any previous experience from dog sledding to participate, but you should be in average physical shape. The weather in the Arctic is unpredictable and can change within a few hours. With cold temperatures and wind the weather can be challenging.
