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.
