About Green Dog Svalbard
Green Dog separates from other commercial dog kennels at Svalbard, since our dogs are a mix between the Greenland dog and husky – and also, since our family, consisting of 2 adults and 4 children – and our guides – are living at the kennel, year round. We put dog welfare above all, so it was a natural choice to live at the kennel, to be present with our 4 legged friends, at all times. When our dogs retire, we put great effort in finding new families for them and this has resulted in many happy relationships. You can read about some of our pensioners at the blog at www.greendog.no. We offer tours with our dogs year around - on dog sledges in winter and on carts or by foot, accompanied by a happy Green Dog, in summer. To give you the best experience, our sled tours are for maximum 8 guests and everybody gets the chance to steer the dog sled. All of our tours includes coffee & biscuits and we offer a 50% discount for children up to 12 years. We look forward seeing you!

Excellent hospitality! My wife and I got married at Svalbard in october, and Green Dog offered to make the wedding transportation into a memorable one, for free. Amazing experience, and a really fun way to arrive at your own wedding!

We are a family of four, two adults and children aged 6 and 9. We had a great experience with Green Dog Svalbard. The trip was amazing. We were allowed to cuddle with all the dogs, and also the seven weeks old puppies, which our children absolutely loved. We would love to visit Green Dog again.

Just returned to Denmark after 5 amazing days on Svalbard. We were a big family of 13 people (grandparents, children and grandchildren aged from 76yrs to 12yrs) who visited Green Dog 20th October. Kudos to Green Dog Svalbard for an amazing experience riding a dog sleigh on wheels. Everyone in the group felt secure and confident and the ride were well organised all the way from pick up at the Hotel in Longyearbyn to the camp were we got equipped with good quality clothing (boots, gloves and clothes) and back to the hotel again. Before the ride we helped putting the dogs (they were very friendly and eager to get out running) in line, after a good instruction on how to steer the sleigh off we took on an amazing trip. We stayed mainly on the road due to lack of snow at this time of the year, this however didn’t change the fact that we all enjoyed the experience. After the ride and after putting the dogs back to their "house" we drove the the camp where hot drinks and waffles were prepared for us. Here we got the chance to say hi to some of the puppies. All together a great experience from finish to the end. Once again kudos to Green Dog Svalbard for making this trip possible and for delivering a high quality experience with happy healthy dogs in a difficult (I imagine) post COVID-19 period.

Great trip with people who love these dogs. Good knowledgeable staff If you like animals you will have an excellent time because you are allowed to interact with the dogs before, during and after the sledding. They are all different characters so it was great to get to know them for a few hours Beautiful surroundings Magical and unique experience
