Alaskan Huskies

Some of the most important members of Fjällräven Polar are of course the dogs. Around 100 Alaskan Huskies will be active during the expedition. The majority of the dogs are from Kenth Fjellborgs kennel while a smaller number have been brought in from other leading kennels around the world. The northerly location and the long distance expedition make the hardy and hardworking Alaskan Husky the breed of choice.

Working in Arctic weather conditions requires a double coat, strong paws and an athletic build. Just as important, however, are the individual dogs’ character. Only dogs that are exceptionally friendly and easy to handle are included in the expedition.
