7F: Husky Sledge Adventure, Kirkenes

Medium

You are met at the quay in Kirkenes for a short drive on to the intriguing Snow Hotel, situated next to Gabba Reindeer Park. Here you will put on warm outdoor clothing – with snow overalls, shoes, gloves and hats all provided for you. Then it’s time to meet the dogs! The huskies are harnessed to your sledge, eagerly waiting to transport you across the frozen landscape. There will be two passengers per sledge, with each sledge travelling with its own “musher” (guide). All of the guides have plenty of experience in dog sledging, many having taken part in competitive dog races. You can also have a go at driving the sledge yourself, or if you’d prefer, you can simply sit back and enjoy the ride. The track is just over 5 km long, and is set against the most picturesque of landscapes, so you can experience the real feeling of wilderness during your adrenalinfuelled ride! At the end of the trip you gather around the fire for a hot drink, and also have the option to visit the Snow Hotel or the reindeer enclosure.
