Dog Sledding

Dog sledding difficulty chart Dog sledding in an Arctic landscape is both peaceful and beautiful. In winter, the dogs pull the sled across a snow-covered landscape, while in summertime they pull specially made wheeled sleds. Regardless of the season, it’s an unforgettable adventure.

Experience dog sledding all year

The sound of eager dogs breathing is all that breaks the silence. Powered only by your new four-legged friends, the sled is pulled at a pleasant pace so there is plenty of time for impressions to sink in. You can admire the white-covered Arctic desert both day and night, in the moonlight, beneath the magical Northern Lights or in bright sunshine. It depends entirely on which season you visit Svalbard. But no matter when you choose to come, you will have a close-up experience with the huskies and the nature.

Experienced guides ensure your safety and fulfilling a unique experience. You will get a chance to be a musher (driver) as two people generally share each sled and you can swap midway. When you return to the dog yard, the dogs are always keen for some extra attention and play. If you are lucky, you will get to greet the cutest puppies too.

Customize your dog sledding adventure

The various providers offer different types of dog sledding trips, so you have many options to choose between. Would you prefer a half-day or full-day trip? Do you want to visit an ice cave during the trip? Would you prefer to explore one of the valleys or would you rather visit a cosy cabin during the trip? If you feel like a real adventurer, you can choose a multi-day trip – a genuine expedition, which will enable you to experience even more of the beautiful and wild Svalbard nature.
