Guests will travel by guided bus to a husky farm, where dozens of cheerful, friendly and hard-working Alaskan husky dogs are waiting to say hello.
The visitors will be greeted by their hosts and given a tour of the farm. The highlight of the tour are the husky dogs: well-mannered champion athletes that love to get hugs and cuddles from everyone they meet. The guests will have a chance to pet and photograph the huskies while at the farm.
As part of the tour, guests will be served refreshments around an open wood fire and hear stories about racing and raising husky dogs, including stories from the 1000-kilometer Finnmarksløpet race that starts and ends in Alta each year.
The tour requires approximately 100 meters of walking over uneven and occasionally icy snow.
