I did three different excursions with Green dog during my stay in longyearbyen and they were all very nice with great guides with good local knowledge and good english (they were not from Norway). I give them my best recommendations!

We did the dog sledging on wheels tour. The dogs were cute, friendly and strong. Due to the heat, e had to stop several times to water the dogs and to give them water to drink. We also visited the pups.
