A unique adventure!
Travel with your own dogsled to a magnificent ice cave, accessible only by dogsled. Within the ice cave, the lights from our headlamps let us experience ice as few people have seen it.
The still air in the cave provides the perfect conditions for the ice to form fantastic shapes and beautiful colours. You will be collected from the hotel entrance and driven to the Green Dog dog yard which is located approximately 12km from Longyearbyen.
Once there you will be supplied with outer clothes for the tour and given an introduction to dogsledding.
Each sled will take two guests, and you will have the opportunity to enjoy the ride as a passenger and try mushing for yourself.
You sled With 5-6 huskies , but the leading sled with the guide and two guests, will run a 12 team. It is around 10 kilometres of sledding to the ice cave and when approaching the glacier,you may have to help the dogs,since the icecave is located at a height of 400 metres.
The group will stop at the beautiful ice cave hidden inside the Scott Turner glacier, and explore the cave while the dogs rest.
During the summer the ice cave is a bubbling meltwater river, and you will be able to see how the water has cut a path through the ancient ice, leaving beautiful formations in the walls and roof.
After we’ve visited the ice cave, we will enjoy a light lunch and a hot drink in our heated tent.
The group will then return to their well-rested dogs, who will now be eager to head downhill, through Bolterdalen and back home to the dog yard.
