Forget about the Mercedes S-Class, Porsche Cayenne, or Porsche Panamera, dog sled planeside pickups seem way more fun! These would also be quite helpful here in New York where we are once again experiencing another major winter storm. The Kirkenes Snowhotel in northern Norway recently launched the taxi service using a team of eight Alaskan huskies. The service picks up guests planeside from their flight at Kirkenes Airport (KKN) and transports them on a scenic 45 minute ride through the snow to the hotel. The hotel will charge guests 2300 NOK ($372) for the service and guests will be provided with thermal suits and given time to get acquainted with the dogs before the ride. They are also advertising this as the world’s first dog-sled taxi service. Full story in Norway’s The Local.
