Green Dog Svalbard is a family run business, located in Bolterdalen 10 km from Longyearbyen. We have more than 20 years of experience in dog sledding from Svalbard and Greenland. Green Dog have more than 200 polar dogs and every year 20 new puppies are born. Green Dog offers guided trips with sled-dogs year round in Svalbard's high arctic wilderness. Drive a dog-sledge to a rare ice cave in Winter with our skilled guides or join us at Bolterdal hike, dog cart trips or hike over the Foxfonna glacier in Summer.
