If you’re headed to Norway, you can immediately experience the local culture right after you step out of the airport and grab a cab. A different kind of cab, that is. The Kirkenes Snowhotel offers a quirky and adventurous way of getting from the airport to their front door: the world’s first dog sled taxi pick-up service.

For US$372, guests will be picked up by a guided team of eight Alaskan huskies and be given thermal suits, because you know, it’s freakin’ cold in Norway. They will then embark on a 45-minute ride that involves stunning views of snowy landscapes. At the hotel, guests can bond more with their furry cab drivers through tours, wilderness trips, and dog sledding lessons.
