Today I came to the Svalbard Villmarkssenter by bycicle to get some information about tours. The representative guy was taking care about the dogs. He was very rude and agressive. I was dissapointed and I strongly do not recommend this place.

We enjoyed the husky hike with fireside lunch. The dogs were eager for exercise so you were more like a human sled and they walked you. It was a unique experience though. You must have good waterproof boots, warm clothes to survive this. It was...More
