Husky Mountain Hike
When thinking about what to do in Kirkenes in summer season, going sightseeing or visiting the museums are obvious choices, as in most towns you visit along the coast of northern Norway. But to really get max value of your nordic summer vacation, get out of town, and explore the fantastic arctic nature! Only a few kilometres from Kirkenes centre the wilderness starts, and stretches out for miles and miles in every direction.
Time to explore the northern wilderness
We will pick you up from Hurtigruten harbor, or your hotel in Kirkenes, and take you to the Snowhotel Kirkenes summer camp in the idyllic Sandnesdalen, by the mountains and fjords of northern Norway. Enjoy arctic summer life and meet our 4 reindeer, and feed them with their favorite food - tundra lichen. Visit our husky farm and meet our 180 friendly huskies and adorable puppies.
When you have found a fourlegged friend in our dogyard, we are ready for a Husky Mountain hike in the mountain ranges above the Snowhotel Kirkenes camp. The terrain is easy, and not to steep, so this is an excursion suitable to all. If you should get tired, your strong husky are more than willing to give you a pull!
At the top of the mountain plateau
we rest, and admire the breathtaking view. We build a fire at the campsite, by the remains of a world war 2 plane, and grill reindeer sausages - northern Norwegian touring style.
Make new friends you will never forget.
Learn about the north from our knowledgeable guides and get to know our amazing Alaskan huskies.
Husky hike and Dinner.
Go for an afternoon hike followed by a 3 course dinner in the unique Snowhotel Restaurant by the fjord.
Ooops! Did we mention we have puppies?
Remember to cuddle them before and after your hiking trip.
