I am visiting my oldest daughter who has practice as a nurse in Kirkenes for the moment. Kirkenes is near Russia and Finland in north of Norway. It is very cold up here, and yesterday it was about -15 C when we started our adventure with eight young Alaskan Huskys and our guide Dennis. We selected Kirkenes snowhotel Husky experience. One because it is just 30 min from Kirkenes sentrum, and two because we had been there Thursday and looked at the dogs and the snowhotel. I had dreamed about it in whole my life to stay on a slide with several dogs running me up in the mountains. So yesterday the chance was there. We were choosing two ours run, but we get out nearly in two and a half our and a little bit more. We learned to handle the slide and the dogs, how we get the dogs to run and how we stopped the dogs. When we were on the fjord, we got to drive the sled, first my daughter and so did I. It was amazing, and it went fast. When we drove up the mountains it was Dennis our great guide that was driving the sled. He had to shout out where the dogs should run left, right, and so on. But the dogs are smart and follows the track, but it was several tracks, so they had to be told which track they should choose.

I recommend all that are visiting Kirkenes to do this adventure. Maybe you think it is too expensive, but I think that this people live of this job, they shell pay for the food to the dogs, veterinary, all the equipment that shell be tip top, and they shell earn enough to feed themselves. And seriously they give you an experience for life time! So we did it, and I want to do it again. It was really an amazing experience.
