Enjoy the fascinating relationship between man and dog working together in nature. Make sure to look up, the northern lights might be dancing above you.

Customer Reviews

“...But those views were nothing compared to the sight that awaited us as we rounded the corner to the main bay. A sea of icebergs stretching out to the horizon, barely a gap that wasn’t filled in. The scale of it was truly awe-inspiring, like nothing I’ve ever seen before. We sat there for ages staring at this otherworldly sea of frozen whites and blues, a stark contrast to us sitting in t-shirts, warm under the sun.”
