Forget the airport bus, grab a husky sledge to your hotel with Hurtigruten

Imagine arriving at your holiday destination, but as you leave the airport, instead of being picked up by a minibus or coach, you are greeted by the sight of a husky, to whisk you off across the snow-covered landscape to your hotel.

Forget the airport bus, grab a husky sledge to your hotel insteadWell, from Winter 2014, Hurtigruten can make that a reality with the introduction of optional Husky transfers between Kirkenes Airport and the SnowHotel.

On arrival at Kirkenes airport, customers will be given all the suitable clothing to make the 45 minute journey by husky sledge to the hotel. They needn’t worry about whether their luggage will fit on the sledge as it will follow by a more common mode of transport – a mini-bus.

The transfers will be available to customers flying into Kirkenes for a ‘Classic Voyage South’, but who are staying overnight at the SnowHotel in Kirkenes for a night before joining the ship.

Hurtigruten offer a six day ‘Classic Voyage South’ travelling from Kirkenes to Bergen, including a night at the SnowHotel from £1,052 per person, on a variety of dates, December 2014 through April 2015. The price is based on two people sharing.

Husky transfers cost an additional £289 per person, based on two people sharing a sledge.
