Visit our idyllic cabin in untouched, silent Tverrdalen. The only way to get there is by foot, skiing or dog sledding since motorized transportation is not allowed here. This trip provides a very special opportunity to experience the Svalbard wilderness in all its splendor with the help of our furry 4 legged friends.
Day number 1 goes through wide valleys and over glaciers. Lunch will be served close to a very beautiful ice cave which we will visit. Thereafter we continue over a mountain pass with spectacular views before we sled down to our cozy cabin in Tverrdalen where no other human installation exist. Here we enjoy the fire in the oven and relax with a better meal while our faithful huskies placed outside around the cabin serve as our trustful polar bear guards. When darkness arrives, the non-existing light pollution from human settlements makes this the ideal place to explore northern light and the amazing!
At day number two we make a day tour in Tverrdalen with our dog teams, exploring this wally’s many exciting glacier and mountain formations. Day number three we leave the cabin and dogsled home taking another route to explore even more of Svalbards’ fascinating landscape.
We pick you up at your accommodation in Longyearbyen at 10 am Day 1 and drive to our husky kennel located 12 km outside Longyearbyen. Here we will inform you about the trip, equipment and safety. Then we dress you up with warm clothes and shoes, make the sleds ready and harness the dogs. The trip is a round trip with 2 nights in our cabin in Tverrdalen.

Day 3 we will take another route home and expected arrival at your accommodation in Longyearbyen is approximately 6 pm.
