Husky Taxi Service
In the snow-covered landscape of Norway dog sledding has always been considered an efficient form of transport. It is perhaps no surprise then, that a “dog taxi” transfer service has been launched to collect passengers from Kirkenes airport, one of the country´s most northerly airports.
Up to two passengers can fit on each sled, but if there is a bigger group the hotel will send more dog teams, who arrive with thermal suits – as well as everything you need for a comfortable journey. The 45-minute trek takes a scenic route around the local countryside from the airport to the Kirkenes Snowhotel.
Price from $495* per person
*The price includes two people sharing a sled, driver and protective clothing. Your main luggage will be transported separately. Minimum 2 participants. Only available from the airport to Kirkenes Snowhotel for flight arrivals between 11:00–15:00.
You can book the "Husky Taxi" on Hurtigruten sailings starting in Kirkenes along the Norwegian coast.
