the modern Home of arctic Trappers
Trapper’s Station - home to the Arctic trappers and their 90 Alaskan huskies, raring to take you for a ride through the wild Arctic scenery.
barking of the Alaskan huskies is the first thing you'll notice as you approach
the Trapper's Station located 10 km outside Longyearbyen. Despite the noise
they make as they greet you, the dogs are friendly and eager to take you for a
sled ride through the valleys and glaciers of Spitsbergen.
trappers came north with dreams of freedom, adventure, and the big catches to
be found in the vast wilderness. Soon they would have to cope with the dangers,
loneliness, and isolation of the Arctic in the quest for their dreams.
husky sledding, at Trapper's Station you’ll experience how it was to be a
trapper making a living from winter hunting, and listen to the great stories.
We will serve a meal that will take you back to the trappers’ daily lives, and to
times of celebration when they would prepare a real feast!
