Husky Safari - winter 13:00
Can you hear the call of the wild? Our huskies are ready to run!
The Snowhotel Kirkenes Husky Safari has become a well-known arctic adventure, since we started up with dogsled tours 10 years ago. The professional mindset, the deep care for our dogs, the passionate dog mushers and most of all, our 180 strong and beautiful Alaskan huskies, has made us one of the most popular and reputable husky ventures north of the arctic circle.
Travel by Dog Power – the sustainable way. Our huskies may seem fierce at first, but once you make the bond, you will experience the warmth of these fantastic animals. That is why we also have an open dogyard where our guests can get to know all our dogs and puppies.
After a short ride from the city (15-20min) you will arrive at Snowhotel, where we prepare for the dog sledding trip. We will provide you with warm clothing and winter boots before meeting the Huskies and heading out in the wilderness. On this dog sledding trip, you will be sitting in the sledge (two persons per sledge) and our experienced mushers will take you on a ride along the fjord in the scenic Sandnesdalen. If conditions allow, the guest may get to try driving the dog sled part of the tour. After the dog sledding trip, you will have time to reward our Huskies with cuddles.
