You get picked up at the harbor and drive out to Bolterdalen, where everyone will receive an exposure suit, boots, mittens, and hatfor the tour. The guide will give you an introduction to the mysteries of dogsledding and help everyone harness the dogs and fasten them to the sleds. The dogs maybe noisy before we start out, but as soon as we head off they will be silent.
An amazing and authentic way to experience the Arctic
The guide will drive and you will follow on your sled. We follow the riverbed, surrounded by beautiful mountains, into Bolterdalen.By the moraine we may gain some speed between the mounds of stone. Reindeer are often seen on this tour, and sometimes Svalbard grouse and polar foxes as well. We will stop several times during the tour to take pictures and petthe dogs. At the Scott Turner Glacier we will turn the sleds and set a course for the dog yards. Back atthe camp you will help unharness the dogs before the guide serves a cup of tea orcoffee, and shows us the newest litter of puppies.
