Dog sledding

Dog sledding in Svalbard

At Basecamp Explorer we keep about a 100 happy husky dogs. All of them have names and individual personalities and they are the most social and friendly animals in Svalbard. A dog sledding adventure with us is more than standing behind a sled of dogs. This is when you learn how to prepare and mush your own team of huskies. This is when you become a real arctic explorer, as you travel across the frozen Arctic landscape. This is when you become one with nature.

A winter adventure with dog sledge is an incredible way to experience Svalbard. Embark on an authentic trip where you travel with dog sledges through the Arctic landscape. A 1-day mini expedition is your place to shine as a musher for a day.
