    This tour is purely about dogs and dogs only. Cuteness factor is HUGE! The guides are not very knowledgeable about nature though. They try, which is cute, but a random flowering weed was introduced as a lingonberry bloom at some point (they didn’t even look remotely similar). So - go if you’re a dog lover, don’t go if you’re curious about nature.

    We have visited the Alaskan huskies center, they have explained to us the breeds of dogs, their food and exercise routine. We have seen all the dogs hanging out with them on the premises. Then we have helped feed the puppies and then we have taken them out to do various exercises in a nearby field, then with more adult puppies and finally they have prepared a hut with a very cozy bonfire and they have served us a very rich plate of cod with Coffee or tea, and a delicious chocolate dessert. Katherine and her partner have been very kind and attentive at all times, we send them a hug. Thanks

    We had lots of fun

    Pick up at the meeting point went very well. Yes, the dogs are chained. One can judge this or ask oneself how one could otherwise solve this with 300 dogs. However, the dogs seem to be doing very well. Most of them are very trusting and love to be petted. Of course we came for the puppies ;-) Our daughter (11) and we got our money's worth with the huskies of different ages! Thank you for the great experience!
