Gabba Reindeer and Husky Park

14 Sandnesdalen

In the Sami language, the word gabba means white reindeer, and it’s great fun to feed lichen to them at Gabba Park, just 15 minutes from Kirkenes. Even outside the winter dogsledding period, the husky compound is open for visitors to make an up-close acquaintance with the energetic furry creatures and to learn about how they are trained. If you sign up for a Barents Sea king crab fishing excursion in a Zodiac, you get to feast on your catch afterward.
