Kenneth and Yvonne

Eventyret venter den, som forstår at gribe det.

(Adventure awaits he who knows to seize it)

~Knud Rasmussen

Kenneth and Yvonne shear their passion for the Arctic, dogsledding, trapper & Inuit life and hunting. They have both lived in the high Arctic on the island of Svalbard (Spitsbergen) where they went on numerous shorter and longer trips by dogsled, snowmobile, boat, foot and ski. “Some call it expeditions, for us they are trips in our backyard.”

They got hooked on mushing on Svalbard and decided to build up their own kennel of purebred Siberian Huskies in 2011. Yvonnes first race ever was the 500km Finnmarks race in 2012. Everyone had a great time, except the race was too short… Plans for longer races were made.

In 2013 they moved with all of their dogs for two years to Alaska where Yvonne is working at the University. In 2014 Yvonne was the first German woman ever to finish the Iditarod, and the first German to enter and finish the Nadezhda Hope International Sled dog race in Chukotka, Russia.
