Wonderful authentic adventure!
Exciting stories from polar expeditions and magic darkness dogsleding. We watched reindeer crossing the slopes while riding the sleigh. Lunch was eaten inside private home while listening to stories. Highly recomendable trip for all ages!

The dog sledding with ice cave visit, billed as the "Ultimate Svalbard Experience" lived up to its name and was our favourite trip of the holiday. We were picked up and upon arrival at the cabin met Tommy who was leading our daytrip. He was calm, professional and clearly lives for his dogs and the lifestyle. Very experienced with many stories to tell.

We were supplied with boots, gloves and a full insulated suit, keeping our own baselayers and a jumper underneath. (Was -6C outside, turned out to be plenty warm and I had the suit top open for half the day). Didn't take spares with ous out for the day so didn't need to take bags as they have all provisions.

After plenty of instruction and a brief time getting the dogs all harnessed we were off (us on one sled and another couple on another), following Tommy. We were followed on a snowmobile for ten minutes or so to make sure it was all going smoothly before just being with the dogs into the breathtaking tundra.

It gets quite physical as you need to help the dogs up some of the slopes by kicking off the side of the sled but it's rewarding and after some time we arrived at an igloo, helped tie up the dogs to some posts to rest, and have a good hot lunch (choice of real turmat packets) and good conversation inside.

After that we walked over to the ice cave and explored inside, Tony telling us how it is formed, that it's new each year and some more stories.

After that we headed out, now quite dark, got the dogs ready and sledged all the way back downhill in half the time (didn't realise how far up we'd come).

Couldn't recommend more. Was very personal, like going out for the day with a friend, and an experience we'll never forget.

Very professional. A quick meet and greet with our tour guides and the dogs and we were on our way. A bit of physical activity is required if you want to stand on the sled. A great lunch in a bench we made in the snow. Was lucky enough to see some of the Northern lights. Sledded back and met all the dogs with some back stories how they care for them. Over 6 hours long so be prepared for a long day. Thankyou for the great day

This was probably the highlight of our entire trip! Tommy and team do a great job teaching you about the dogs and sharing experiences of races, trips, adventures, and everyday life. The small intimate group sitting in Tommy's living room listening to him share his passion was simply amazing! The dogs are so well trained and loved to see us and go for a ride. This is not a "tourist attraction" like many other dog places have become......this is spending time and seeing how every day of a passionate person's life is and how much he cares for and respects his animals. If you do nothing else in Svalbard/Spitsbergen, you MUST try to spend a few hours with Tommy and the dogs. Yes, you get to ride a dogsled....but this experience is MUCH more!

Really had a great time with Tommy and his team. We were picked up at our hotel as appointed and headed to the dog camp and cabin where we were handed warm, comfortable clothes and informed about the ride and the dogs. Great to see how much they care for their dogs and interesting to hear about the dogs lifes as sled dogs. The dogs were really friendly, cuddly and nice to be with - so you can tell they are being well kept. As a small group our experience felt very secure and special, and we were able ti Ask questions at all time. We drove in pairs and had a great time on the sled. Magical experience in the dark! Thank you Tommy and team.

We had an amazing experience. It was just the two of us with Tommy and Lisa. Instead of a guided tour it was more of a "family friend inviting us over" feeling.

Although there was not enough snow for the sled, the alternative on wheels was almost equally awesome!

After taking care of the dogs and giving them their treats, Tommy showed us around and shared some of his day-to-day chores. We could get a good underwear of life (with the dogs) on Svalbard. Afterwards, we shared a lovely home-cooked meal Lisa made and she gave us more stories about Tommy's adventures and well as her own journey up to today.

We would definitely recommend any of the tours Arctic Husky Travellers are organizing! We were honored meeting Tommy and sharing his passion for the dogs and nature! We'll see each again for sure!

Note: Even with the provided gear it could get cold, so make sure you dress very warm.

The trip to the icecave was mesmerizing! The icecave was very beautiful and interesting and Tommy knew so much about it and made it such a beautiful experience. The trip down was exciting; climbing a latter and going through narrow passages. When we were down in the Cave surrounded by ice, Tommy really made us take in the special feeling it is to be in a 600-year old icecave. The dogsledding trip was a whole other level of amazing. You disappear into nothingness with the sound of nothing but dogs and sleds. These are dogs that have been around the arctic and are treated well which you definitely see! They are very cuddly and also do their job amazingly. Tommy and Einar were amazing on the trip, both helping to inform and direct (for a first-timer as I was it was needed!) but also by just being totally amazing down to earth nice people. Tommy also has a lot of great stories to tell! We had so much fun and were sad to leave, but isnt that the best feeling to have? We are definitely coming back for more! Also, we got to meet the amazing arctic legend Foxy (one of the huskies)! All in all 10/10.

Wow, I don't know that I can truly express what this experience meant to me.
Tommy and his family & crew have found a way to share their passion and love of their dogs with others. From start to finish, everything was wonderful. We were given extra warm clothing, in-depth safety instructions, time to get to know the dogs (including the amazing Foxi), the actual sledding time (or in this case, a wheeled cart) where we could enjoy the scenery and then get to drive ourselves! We got to tour the facilities and find out how the special bond and trust is developed between Tommy and his dogs. Lunch was so tasty - it felt like we were visiting dear friends - and we got to see fascinating video and photos of these incredible people and dogs. The hike was also fun... we got to walk with a couple of puppies, and see some of the beautiful nature.
One of the most authentic things I've ever experienced :)

We had an absolutely brilliant day with Tommy and his quite beautiful dogs. Tommy picked us up from our hotel and took us out to his dog yard to meet his best friends. You can tell how proud he is of his dogs and they are all so clearly happy!

We were provided with all the warm and waterproof clothing we needed and once all set up headed out with the dogs. We each got at least one opportunity to drive the dogs on a 12km round trip.

Once back we went out for a short hike with Tommy and a couple of the dogs to see some whale fossils. After this we headed back to his house for some traditional Norwegian soup and some pictures and a film of thr adventures Tommy, his family and dogs had been on across various Arctic races.

A thoroughly wholesome and fun day out with a real intimacy that you don't get on bigger group trips.

This was a wonderful and extremely rewarding experience. As others have said, this was not simply a tourist experience but a highly informative and educational exposure to a way of life. We have the utmost respect for Tommy and his guides and their tremendous care for their extraordinary dogs.
This is one of the most rewarding experiences we have had and highly recommend this for those who truly want to learn more about life in Svalbard.
Thank you Tommy and all your four legged friends, especially Foxie.
