We really enjoyed the Svalbard Husky experience. Although this time of year you will not go off road, but just along the dirt road and around an old mine shaft. You will see various other dog yards running around with their dogs. The experience is...More

Dog sledding is a bucket list item for me and although it was summer and I went in a trollcart, it counts. If you don't love dogs, this may not be for you. There are 100+ dogs that live outdoors and are a bit odoriferous....More
