You will receive outer clothing and a briefing on the tour before you help to harness the dogs and head into the wilderness. The guide will drive first, along with two guests and the following sleds will each be driven by two guests. The tour follows a riverbed as it meanders back and forth into Bolterdalen, surrounded by beautiful mountains.
Reindeer are often seen on this tour, and sometimes Svalbard grouse and Polar foxes as well. You will stop several times to take pictures and pat the dogs. At the Scott Turner Glacier you will turn the sleds and set a course for the dog yards. On our return you will help to unharness the dogs before the guide serves a cup of tea or coffee and introduces you to the newest litter of puppies.
