Trap­pers Trail: Spitsbergen’s big­gest dog sledge event

This wee­kend (April 05/06) it’s time again for Spitsbergen’s big­gest dog sledge event, the famous Trap­pers Trail race. This time, records have been bro­ken befo­re the race even star­ted: No less than 22 teams with 38 mus­hers and 199 dogs have signed in to par­ti­ci­pa­te. This is an all time record until now. The Trap­pers Trail race is an annu­al event sin­ce 2009.

As the wea­ther fore­cast is pret­ty good – over­cast, but litt­le wind – the teams, orga­nisers and visi­tors are loo­king for­ward to a gre­at dog sledge wee­kend. The rou­te is on Satur­day from Lon­gye­ar­by­en via Toda­len and Bøda­len to Kapp Lai­la, whe­re Lon­gye­ar­by­en Hun­de­klubb has got a hut, whe­re the par­ticpants will stay until Sunday. The rou­te back is going through Farda­len and up the rather steep slo­pe to the pass over to Lon­gyear­breen. The total distance is 75 kilo­me­tres.

Good trip! Loo­king for­ward to it …!
