Philipp Bergau grew up as an ordinary Berlin city boy with no intention living in the outdoors. A decent education, a study after that, then working as an event lighting technician- that was the plan. But 10 years ago, it all changed when he got his first sleddog out of a dog shelter. Since then it was a constant improvement from city life, to a cabin in the woods of Germany, to 4 years of guiding people in northern Sweden. And finally, coming up to Svalbard with 5 of his own bred dogs. During all this time he learned allot from different people/musher and he did read all he could. The rest of the time he spent on multiple week hikes during summer and on the sled and skis during winter time. Now he and his 8 Alaskan Malamutes are living between Åre and Svalbard.
The trail is a mix of lake and forest trail until we reach the lake of Stor-Rensjön and its vast open area of 75km2 and view towards the mountains around, on which we will be alone and have our snack break. The chance to see wild life is always given and moose are plenty in the area, as well as fox, ptarmigan and reindeer. Old abandoned and inaccessible farm and hunting places in the area are possible to visit, too.
For any extra infos please feel free to contact me. More than 2 guests? Contact me and we will work it out.
