The blogger shared an amazing experience.
Every time I go to any Northern country, everywhere the same… Sooner or later the road ends and begins the endless tundra, with a minimum of human settlements, housing and all the way to the horizon covered with snow.
In these places — not the best option, since gas stations and car service in the tundra is also napryazhenka. But people live and they need to travel long distances. So they do this despite the twenty-first century and nanotechnology — the old fashioned way. On dogs.

1. In recent years I’ve travelled a lot in dog sledding, some places even fairly long distances at a temperature of -30 — Finland, Karelia, Russian North, and now Norway.
Everywhere sled dogs are different. Sledges, dogs, rocks… But all have one thing in common is emotions. Emotions from communicating with dogs. It’s not like a car when you just open the door, sit, start the engine and go. Here you communicate with your “vehicle” — before travel, during when you rest, staying in the path when you come to the final point…
2. Well how not to communicate with them, not to take pictures of these dogs when they are so adorable waiting for them to send him on his way?
3. In Norway we rode the sled near the town of Hemsedal. Here are the husky farm Kim, where everyone can transfer almost to the airport by dog sled or simply enjoy the surroundings. In the Nordic countries this is a traditional service or if you want entertainment for tourists. And if you’ve never ridden on a dog sled, do not take the time and money, get a lot of pleasure.
4. Dogs are resting before the journey. Sometimes it may seem that they really do not want to run anywhere. But this is very misleading…
5. In fact, they only do that glancing at his master, what he was doing, clearly noticing his movement for the preparation of harness and sleigh.
6. When it comes to the end, dogs come in a frenzy of excitement and impatiently squirming in their seats.
7. In fact, huskies love to run and he is simply vital.
8. Start low…
9. We lined up… Ready to go. Ahead about 10 kilometers on the snowy hills.
12. Dogs running so quickly that sometimes the back is literally starting to overtake the sled in front.
13. Wet under foot… the End of March, after all.
14. A break in the path.
15. And again toward the clouds.
17. On vacation, some not even fall. Want to run further.
21. Finally, after about an hour we reached the final point. During this time passed more than 10 km in General, the husky can run in good snow for a very long time, passing per hour to 20 km and breaking the day up to 160 km!!!
22. A three headed dog.
23. And this two-headed dog.
24. Two-headed again.
25. And this is Kim the owner of these beautiful dogs that we drove on the Norwegian tundra.
