About Green Dog Svalbard
Green Dog separates from other commercial dog kennels at Svalbard, since our dogs are a mix between the Greenland dog and husky – and also, since our family, consisting of 2 adults and 4 children – and our guides – are living at the kennel, year round. We put dog welfare above all, so it was a natural choice to live at the kennel, to be present with our 4 legged friends, at all times. When our dogs retire, we put great effort in finding new families for them and this has resulted in many happy relationships. You can read about some of our pensioners at the blog at www.greendog.no. We offer tours with our dogs year around - on dog sledges in winter and on carts or by foot, accompanied by a happy Green Dog, in summer. To give you the best experince, our sled tours are for maximum 8 guests and everybody gets the chance to steer the dog sled. All of our tours inludes coffee & bisquits and we offer a 50% discount for children up to 12 years. We look forward seeing you!

Great trip with people who love these dogs. Good knowledgeable staff If you like animals you will have an excellent time because you are allowed to interact with the dogs before, during and after the sledding. They are all different characters so it was great to get to know them for a few hours Beautiful surroundings Magical and unique experience

We were a large group of people coming to this trip, and the nice guides helped everyone feel comfortable handling the dogs and the sled. We had a very nice experience all in all, and the guides were very friendly and helpful.
