Owner description: Get ready for the best husky holiday in Kirkenes. Our 180 huskies are ready to take you for a ride! During Winter, there will be 2 persons per sled, driven by our skilled dog musher. The tour goes in scenic surroundings over the fjord, and on the mountain plateau. All our tours include warm outfits, mittens, balaklava and shoes. During the Summer season, we arrange two different tours with our huskies - Husky Mountain Hike and Husky Wagon. You will greet dogs, puppies and even our reindeer before we head up to the mountain where you can enjoy the wonderful view and grill your own reindeer sausage on the fire. All tours include transfer from/to Kirkenes hotels.

We had a great time fondling puppies, stroking the dogs, photographing the reindeer and listening to the presentations. They also have cabins to rent which would be awesome for winter stays as one would be looking out at the Northern Lights through enormous windows.

Get warm for this but then let them do all the work while you get taken around an amazing snow crystal landscape. to make it even more of a treat they stop at an open fire pit for a warm drink and a sit on a log to view the world. I truly wish I had spent another few days in this town.

We were taken by bus from the harbour to the Ice-hotel. The hotel is built every year and takes just three weeks to construct. The ice sculptures are incredible. There are reindeers nearby. Male reindeer do not have antlers in winter, so Rudolph is a lady!!
The highlight of the trip was the dog sledding, the dogs were so friendly, excited and noisy. But, when they started pulling the sledge........ silence. This has to be one of the best experiences.

We embarked from the Hurtigruten, and were picked up by the shuttle bus that took as directly to the Snow hotel (we booked the excursion with the Hurtigruten)

At the Snow Hotel, we could interact with the Husky's, there were about 180 of them. They all looked happy, excited and well cared for.

The Husky sledge was an awesome experience, the sound of the dogs running in the snow, the beautiful landscape, everything was just perfect. This is certainly a once in a lifetime experience. Loved every moment.

After the husky sledge ride, we had the opportunity to go for a walk through the Snow Hotel. Beautiful.

The shuttle bus took as back to our hotel in Kirkenes.

We stayed at Snowhotel in Kirkenes.
They have a bunch of really well trained huskies that are so friendly.
They allowed us to pet the dogs, get to know them and play with a cute little puppy. It's nice to know the dogs are well cared for and healthy.
The tour was well organised. We got all help with dressing up for the trip. It was quite adequate.
There was a briefing about how to drive the dog sled and how to order the huskies while driving.
Thereafter, a guide seated us in pairs on the sled and off we went.
We were allowed to drive the sled and the guides were not in a hurry to take the reins back. They were very patient.
Halfway through, they lighted a bonfire and served us warm juice. It was delightful.
I would not mind coming back for this again.
