World’s 1st dog-sled Taxi Service Launched in Norway

World’s 1st dog-sled taxi service launched in Norway

Forget stretch limos. In Norway, the fanciest way to get from the airport to a hotel is a ride on the dog-sled taxi, MSN News reports.
Just launched this week, the new service takes passengers from Kirkenes Airport to the nearby Kirkenes Snow Hotel via a 45-minute trek through snowy mountains.

The service, which employs a team of eight Alaskan huskies, managed to get approval from Norway’s defence services, the local government, and the wildlife authority in control of reindeer in the area.

According to a representative of the Kirkenes Snow Hotel, this one-of-a-kind experience is geared toward the “high end market”. That would explain the 2300 NOK price tag.
