Adorable dogs

It was a nice activity. We were there in October and it was raining so not nice to pet dogs (my hand was frozen to force). The history of the dogs is impressive and I find it beautiful to keep the dogs despite being "retired". Nevertheless, they seemed to be bored and to seek our attention for hugs. It is a good idea to have organized these visits so that the dogs can still have enough affection (which is difficult when there are 200 dogs to cuddle). A very nice experience that costs a bit expensive.

Interesting and worth it. It explains how dogs are bred and kept, the history of sled dogs and the legendary races held in the north of the world. After the tour in which all the big dogs and little dogs jump on you and make you party, you rest in the tent made of wood with hot drinks and cake. Excellent for those who love animals and to see a glimpse of Norwegian culture.

We were incredibly lucky with the weather. Pure sunshine. We were told that this was one of the rarer days with such weather. We were then able to take a taxi back with the Hapag Lloyd crew, otherwise we would not have been able to get to our ship in time. Information about the huskies was great
