This dog sledding experience was a gift from me to my mother on the day of her birthday. My mum has a quite a lot of health problems so doing something like this was, for the both of us, a trip of a lifetime, but also very risky. Jan was simply the best! He understood how important this experience was to my mum and he made sure that she was fine throughout the entire experience. He was funny, informative, and caring. Thank you, Jan for making this experience unforgettable!

If you are interested in animals and dogs this is a must!. We went for a short sled trip, but the most important part is the mingling and the handling of the dogs. Quite exiting when they sometimes get a bit exiting and you need to point them in the right direction. We liked it very much

Despite sitting uncomfortably for hours on the actual sled, this expedition was an amazing experience. The dogs are fabulous, especially MORON ... she is a highly intelligent lead dog with a beautiful personality.
Jan, our guide is THE most capable, energetic, friendly person and made this adventure a worthwhile experience. Jan is a super hero in my books!!
Thank you Jan.

I've tried dogs sleds before, what's different about Green Dog? More freedom.
You will be ask to attach and detach your own dog team (supper friendly and can't wait to take you for ride) to the sleds and hold them until all four sleds are ready.
Way to ice cave leading up hill and is bit slow but weary much picturesque, cave is so so but way back down hill...pure joy.

My wife and i had a 3 day dog sledging experience with our guide TIA and her handler. Three fantastic days in the most beautiful of places in temperatures below 20. The dogs where fantastic, friendly and very strong. We loved every minute of the time we spent with the dogs and made new friends as we glided through the snow. If you are ever fortunate enough to visit the wonderful Svalbard then this trip should be very top of your list, AMAZING..
