6-7hours of unique adventure! Travel with your own dogsled to the magnificent ice cave, which can only be reached by dogsled. We enter the ice cave and in the lights from our headlamps we experience ice as few people has seen it. The still standing air in the cave gives the ice perfect conditions to form fantastic shapes and beautiful colors.
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 outerclothes 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. The group will stop at a beautiful ice cave hidden inside a glacier, and explore the cave whilst 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. The group will then return to the dogs who will be well-rested, and eager to head downhill back to the dogyard.
At all trips,at all times an experienced and armed guide will be around to protect you from polar bears. At Green Dog safety is our number one priority.
