This was not only a highlight of this holiday, but of any holiday we’ve ever taken. The dogs are gorgeous and the people are extremely friendly. Once in a lifetime experience for those of us from the Southern Hemisphere.

The husky ride was exhilarating and great fun. The huskies were full or energy and you can pick up a lot of speed during the ride. Totally recommend it.

I wouldn't have thought so as the ship docks early morning but sails again around 5 in the evening to sail to the next fjord.
