 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.

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.

True Arctic Silence

Mushing under the northern lights

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.

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.

Standing behind the dog sledge and letting your fateful dog team pull you through the white scenery gives you time to appreciate the beauty of the Arctic.
