Simon Rowland
Managing Director

Our Alaskan huskies need just as much love, attention and exercise in the summer as they do in the winter and that’s why we are happy to offer a summer dog sledding trip that will be as thrilling for you as it is for our dogs. On the day of your trip your dog sledding guide will meet you at the Basecamp Hotel in Longyearbyen where you will receive a briefing on the itinerary for your trip and some safety demonstrations. You will then be taken to the Trapper’s station where you will meet your team of beautiful Alaskan Huskies and learn the basics of how to handle the dogs before setting off on your Arctic adventure.

As an alternative to wooden sleds we have specially constructed wagons that make for an even more enjoyable and exciting experience and mean there is no need for any previous experience or knowledge, just nerve and instincts.

It is two people to a wagon and whilst one is driving the other can enjoy the rich countryside of the Arctic in summer. You can expect to see abundant amounts of arctic plant life, and birds and reindeer in their natural habitat. After the tour you will help the guide settle the dogs back into the yard before enjoying some hot drinks and biscuits in a traditional trappers cabin or outside amongst the vast nature if the weather prevails.
