THE TRAPPER'S TRAIL
2- days dog sledding adventure to expedition cabin
Your guide will pick you up in the hotel reception at 10 am, and together you will drive to the Trapper’s Station. The dog yard is situated in Bolterdalen, about 10 km outside of Longyearbyen. You will be greeted by a 100 excited Alaskan Huskies, some of which will be a part of your hard-working team of huskies on your 2-day adventure. Listen carefully to the dog sledding lesson given to you by the guide. When you are ready, it is time to mush our teams of dogs across the white and open landscape of Adventdalen.
The goal for the day is the expedition cabin. During the trip we will find a nice spot to enjoy an outdoor lunch. When we arrive at the cabin in the afternoon, your first mission will be to organize a night camp for the dogs. Your guide will be there to assist you. Our four-legged friends will sleep outside while we will have the luxury of a comfortable bed in the cabin. We will prepare dinner together, and sit down for a well-deserved meal after a long day on the frozen tundra.
Morning routines on a dog sledding adventure involves making sure the dogs are cared for before you can enjoy morning coffee and breakfast. When we have finished packing and the cabin looks clean and tidy, it’s time for new day of exploring the snow-covered valleys.
Today’s route will go southwards through a varied landscape where you might have to assist the dogs through heavy snow or uphill. We arrive at Basecamp Trapper’s Station in the afternoon. The huskies will return to their doghouse and you will have time to enjoy the last minutes of a day filled with impressions before heading back to Longyearbyen.
