What could be cooler than a journey to the end of the Earth? How about a journey to the end of the Earth… with a personal team of sled dogs? Among its many trips, the tour operator Excursionist offers the opportunity to explore Norway’s Svalbard archipelago with a pack of Alaskan huskies and a local guide leading the way. If a seven-day excursion spotting polar bears and reindeer while braving the arctic elements does not sound like your thing, Excursionist offers hundreds of other experiences, including the opportunity to design your own.
