A dog-sled team had to be sent out to rescue two tourists in Norway's Arctic north after their GPS sent them down the shortest line between two points.
The only problem is that the shortest route between Garga and Masi has been closed since the 1960s to anything but off-road bikes and specialty vehicles, and was never used in the winter at all. The road crosses a perilous mountain ridge.
According to TheLocal.no, “The two tourists took it all very well.” A rescue service spokesperson told newspapers that “we decided to salvage the car when it got light again the next day, and as a result the two were picked up by a dog team. It seemed like they had a good time.”
