 WOULD YOU LIKE TO MUSH YOUR OWN DOG TEAM?

Join one of our dog sledding trips and learn to mush your own husky team across the frozen fjords and glaciers of Svalbard. Just like a real arctic explorer.

The barking stops as the dogs lunge forward. This is the arctic silence: the only sound is happy husky paws, crunching the snow beneath them. Relax and smile as you feel the power of the dogs pulling you through the arctic wilderness.

Follow the footprints of the old explorers! Mush your own dog team across Spitsbergen just like Amundsen did when he reached the magnetic North Pole in 1904 and sleep at our new North Pole Camp.

The expedition starts from Longyearbyen continuing towards north to Tempelfjorden where we stay in a tent, before continuing deeper into the arctic land to the Nordenskiöld Glacier and Nordenskiöld lodge. The last days we will spend at the lodge making dogsledding trips over sharp mountains, shiny glaciers and frozen fjords.

To step outside Longyearbyen will open a door to the wilderness. On this trip, you will not only visit the wilderness, but you will live and feel the arctic around you. Two night in a tent will give you the real feel what the arctic is about. But once entering Isfjord Radio you will be surprised. The contrast between surrounding rough coastal landscape and the modern luxury hotel inside is a sight to behold. It is easy to forget where you are.

“West coast or death” These words represent the toughness of the arctic nature and the rough conditions also at Spitsbergen. However, when we leave Longyearbyen, fortunately we do not need to set our own lives at stake. Basecamp Spitsbergen is proud to offer you one of the most challenging dog sledge trips on the archipelago in a well-planned and safe way.

The dogs in the summer need just as much love, attention and exercise as in the winter and we are happy to offer summer dog sledding. Instead of being dragged in the traditional way behind a wooden sled, here at Basecamp we have constructed wagons that enable an equally enjoyable and exciting experience.

Dogsledding on Spitsbergen is a unique experience. There is only arctic silence around you. Only the panting of the dogs and the scraping of the sled runners against the snow break the complete silence. At this time of the year, you can see northern light throughout the day, so if you are lucky there might be some dancing on the sky on your lunch break.
