Dog sledding in Svalbard

Join us on one of our dog sledding trips and learn how to mush your own team of huskies across the frozen fjords and glaciers of Svalbard. Become a real arctic explorer!

The barking stops as the eager dogs lunge forward. Relax and smile, and let the pulling power of the dogs lead you into the arctic silence.

We offer day trips or multi-day trips to our basecamps located in the heart of the arctic wilderness. We also do summer dog sledding on wheels. Find your next adventure below.

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.

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.

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.
