Meet The Man Who Quit His Job To Hike Across Norway With His Dog

Capture

28-year-old Henrik Viske left his steady job to pursue his dream: exploring the natural wonders of his home country with akiak, his much-loved husky.

Henrik told Mashable Australia, he’d always wanted to travel – but like many of us – his job prevented him from living his dream.

But with support from his girlfriend, and his canine best friend, Viske quit his job to experience the natural wonders of Norway.

Now that he’s started his own small business, Viske and his beloved dog have more time to travel together and to document their adventures on Akiak’s Instagram. More than 10,000 users follow Viske and Akiak’s travels across snowy mountains and great green expanses.

Five billion star hotel.
