Enjoy the beautiful coastal landscape whilst the guide drives the large cart, pulled by strong sled dogs along Vestpynten, outside of Longyearbyen.
This tour start with a transfer out towards the coast, where the dogs eagerly await. Here we will help to harness the 12 - 14 dogs to the large wagon, which seats eight passengers. When all the dogs are ready, the tour
will start along the coast of the Arctic sea and in towards Bjørndalen.
Keep your eyes peeled - there is a lot of wildlife in this area! On this tour you may see Svalbard reindeer,the cheeky Arctic fox, local ptarmigan and if your are lucky, seals and possibly walrus or whales in the water. During the nesting periods, birds are prolific, and auks Arctic terns and common!
This tour takes us away from the town, onto an unsealed gravel road. After exploring the coastline in the wagon, we will drive to the dog yard to return the hard-working huskies to their kennels. Whilst we are here, we can say hello to the husky puppies, and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the cozy log cabin.
