To get a feeling of the real polar expedition is easy. Follow the footsteps of Barents, Nansen and Nobile in the dog sled!

No need to have much experience in dog sledding in order to get united with Arctic nature and have a getaway from loud vehicles and crowds - this day dog sledding tour is perfect for everyone!

After we pick you up from your place of accommodation in Longyearbyen, you will get to our kennel and meet the dogs. Our guide will get you familiar with all the necessary instructions on how to drive the sled, specifics of the itinerary and communication with the dog team.

The environs of the town are covered with the snow-white blanket, silence and mountains around will amaze you with its natural immensity and the dogs will be your only engine during this northern adventure!

You will be two or three persons per sled and during the stops along the way, you can always exchange with your partner and try driving the sled yourself.

Lunch and warm drinks will be served on the way or when back to our wilderness center, depending on the weather conditions that day.
