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

Kennel owner Audun’s love for his dogs is simply heart warming. We’ve done dogsledding before. But this kennel was unique. And so was Audun. He first let us get to know the dogs so we could cuddle them and give some bellyrubs. After a short...More

Dog sledding with Huskies is obviously an amazing activity. The kennel used by Svalbard Husky is located deep in Adventdalen, by mine 6 so you start your adventure far from the town in a beautiful surroundings. The trip down the valley takes approximately 4 hours....More
