This really was the highlight of our tour. We booked a hurtigruten trip from bergen to kirkenes aboard the Richard with. We also stayed in kirkenes at the thom hotel to give us a chance to book a husky ride and to see the snow hotel. The husky ride tour also included a meal at the gapahuken restaurant. It was fabulous and we are fussy buggers .! A great night. . Meal,huskies,lights. An experience we shall never forget. Thank you one and all xx

Our group of 16 contacted Eivind Nordhus (owner/chef) to see if we could arrange a dog sled experience through the Sollia Inn, followed by a dinner at his Gapahuken Restaurant. It was a terrific experience in every way. The dog sledding was great fun (animals well cared for, all necessary gear provided, etc) but the dinner afterwards exceeded every expectation. A lovely three course meal was prepared in front of us - king crab appetizer, followed by a delectable, well marinated reindeer filet, and a molten chocolate dessert that will haunt several of us for years to come, accompanied by home made focaccia. The inn is a little outside of Kirkenes but well worth the effort to visit. Some if us overnighted there; others stayed on town and the inn arranged a shuttle to get us back and forth. We would enthusiastically recommend!
