Visit our idyllic cabin in untouched and silent Tverrdalen. The only way to get there is by foot, skis or dog sled 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 installations exist. Here, we enjoy the warmth of the fireplace 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!
On day number two we will do a day tour in Tverrdalen with our dog teams, exploring this valley’s many exciting glacial and mountain formations.
Day number three, we will leave the cabin and dogsled home using a different route to explore even more of Svalbard’s fascinating landscape.
We pick you up at your place of 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 will dress you up in warm clothes and shoes, get the sleds ready and harness the dogs.
The trip is a round trip with 2 nights in our cabin in Tverrdalen. Day 2 we will take a day trip exploring the beautiful surroundings around the cabin. Day 3 we will take a different 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 good 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
