This trip to Longyearbyen was mid of December 2020. The absolute top of this trip was the dog sledding. Into the polar night behind 14 dogs and with Audun as the perfect guide. It was early afternoon, but in December it is dark all day. After a short while when the eys adap to the darkness it is fatastic to see the suraunding mountans. It was fantastic, smooth and quiet. Only the sound of the sled over the snow. And great to see how happy the dogs are when they are running in front. The sledding tour was 2 hours and was about 15 km up a valley between great mountans, and the same way back. Before and after it was much time to play with the dogs and puppyes. All the dogs are happy to play and try to get attention. A great thank to Audun as the perfect guide, and also Mia who helped with the dogs. Will absolute come back.

This adventure was even more fun than we expected! We loved to work with Auduns dogs and it was also fun to ride the sledge.

I did not really know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. We (2) were picked up at the hotel by a representative for Svalbard Husky. We were transported to the office where we got appropriate clothing. The there was a 10-15 minute drive to the kennel where we familiarized ourselves with the some of the dogs. The dogs were lovely - very social and could not get enough cuddles. The guide expected us to do some work, so we had to get the dogs for the team, put the harness on, and attach them to the tugline and neckline. Hard work, but fun with the added benefit of getting to know the dogs - and vice versa. The trip itself was fun. The wagons were relatively easy to steer. The dogs just followed the guide in front, so there was no need for verbal commands. We had 2 quick water stops for the dogs, and one stop at "Vinkelstasjonen", a part of the coal cable way where two lines met and where brought together to one. Back at the kennel there was time for a small snack and a hot drink, before taking a look at and cuddling 3-week old puppies. The guide then took us back to our hotel. Thank you so very much for a wonderful experience!

What an experience! Audun is such a great guy and his beloved dogs are his over 100 children. You can feel the the passion for each other and the whole day at the dogyard is so much more than only being driven by a couple of animals. I was so lucky to get these impressions, the daily work with these friendly animals in a fantastic landscape and feeling the freedom in the nature. The dogs are so well trained and such intent, intelligent and beautiful creatures. Felt in love with them from the first moment. You never have to be scary. And I learned from Audun so much about his dogs and his buisness but even more about his way of living! I highly recommend this company, because for city-living office-working 9to5 people like me, it is a once in a livetime experience with these wonderful dogs in these great nature. Matthias
