6 day dog sled expedition to Svalbard's East Coast - Experience true Arctic wilderness life!

On this tour you will learn and experience what Svalbard can really offer from experiences off the beaten track. Arctic Husky Travelers will make the long trip a memory of life. We have over 20 years of experience from dog sledding and expeditions in the Arctic. We have run the longest dog sled races in Alaska and Europe and been to the North Pole several times with dog sledging. On this tour, you will - in addition to unforgettable experiences - also learn the skills of dog sledding and winter outdoor life under challenging conditions. You do not need any previous dog sledding experience to participate, but you should be in average good physical shape. The weather in the Arctic is unpredictable and can change in a matter of hours. With both cold and wind it can quickly reach temperatures down to -15 ° C in May, but generally the first week of May is the best time for winter expeditions on Svalbard with 24h daylight, good heat from the sun and often fine weather.

Overnight in expedition tent on the sled trip. Day 0 and Day 5 accommodation in Longyearbyen.

I did a half-day dog sledding trip with Arctic Husky Travellers about a week ago. I researched the different tour groups very carefully before deciding to go with them. As a dog owner, the care and well-being of the dogs was very important to me. I was not disappointed. Tommy
