We were looking for something to do in Longyearbyen for a morning before we departed on our expedition cruise and when we found Svalbard Husky during our research we were initially hesitant due to the cost involved. But we are so pleased we went ahead and booked – what an amazing experience it was! If you have come all this way you HAVE to give this a go. We loved how hands on the morning was from meeting the dogs, loading them into the trailer, harnessing the dogs onto the sleds then heading out onto the mountains. The dogs could not have been more willing or eager to pull us through the breath-taking landscape – the views were magic and the ride was exhilarating! My husband and I shared a sled and each had a turn “driving” and being “passenger”. The guide was in the lead and we were with a group with about 4 other sleds as well. The dogs (mainly) follow in a row behind the leader. There doesn’t appear to be any particular path we followed, just let the dogs run free across the mountain with us controlling the speed with the sled. A great thrill, and a really well run authentic experience – not a “tourist” attraction. If we are lucky enough to find ourselves in Longyearbyen again it will be the first thing we book.
