Towards the very top of the Northern Hemisphere lies the Svalbard Archipelago. It is the most accessible high Arctic area in the world, yet its vast expanses of pristine nature appear almost completely untouched by humans. Large parts of Svalbard are national parks and nature preserves outside the few human settlements. There are no roads connecting the settlements, making Svalbard one of the few remaining areas of unspoiled wilderness.

A 5-day tour program in Longyearbyen, with dogsleds in the Tempelfjord, across glaciers and icy fjords and plains, miles away from civilization. Silently the dogs lead us through valleys, over frozen fjords and snow-covered glaciers. Three days are spent in the wilderness. The Polar dogs have long traditions in Arctic areas, for centuries man and dogs have experienced blizzards, pale blue moonlight, winter landscapes and midnight sun together. Up to the 1960`s the dogs provided the only means of travel during wintertime at Svalbard. We spend the night in a tent camp by the fjord with the dogs as Polar bear "alarms" around the camp. The camp is placed under a bird mountain with a wonderful view to the majestic Tempelfjellet and the Tuna- and Von Post glaciers in distance. The camp will work as base camp, as starting point for the day trip. Our experienced guides will decide each days plan dependent on the weather and snow conditions. The interaction between man and animal could be both rough and fun. A dogsled trip gives a whole new meaning to the words freedom and peace. The only sounds are the sledges and the dogs paws against the snow.


Individual arrival in Longyearbyen. Transfer on your own to the hotel. The guesthouses contain a good number of bathrooms with showers and toilets in the corridors just a few paces from your room. The guesthouses also have common rooms with TV, radio and a small kitchen. Info-meeting. Overnight at the Spitsbergen Guesthouse.


Breakfast at the guesthouse. Transfer from the hotel for preparations and packing of equipment. Instructions and briefing on how to drive dogsleds before we start off towards Tempelfjord. Light expedition snack during the trip. Dinner and overnight in tent camp by Tempelfjord.


Day 3 Sat TEMPELFJORD  (B, L, D)
After breakfast we get ready for a day trip. The route will be decided by the guides dependent on the weather and snow conditions. If the sea ice is solid we take a trip to the end of the Tempelfjord to magnificent glacier fronts and under huge bird mountains. Dinner and overnight in tent camp by Tempelfjord.


Using the whole day on dogsled to get back to Longyearbyen. We will try to choose an alternative route to the one used out to Tempelfjord. If the weather permits we will return via the higher mountains and glaciers north of Longyearbyen.
On arrival Longyearbyen we check-in at Spitsbergen Guesthouse. Farewell dinner in a restaurant in the evening. Farewell dinner in a local restaurant in the evening. Overnight at the Spitsbergen Guesthouse.
