A young Norwegian who quit his job to travel his country with his husky Akiak has fired imaginations across the world with his Instagram portraits of the dog in spectacular scenery.

Henrik Vikse, a 28-year-old from Bergen, used to work in construction, but found he could not find the time for his favourite hobby -- spending time in nature with his dog.

“I've been working in construction for about 10 years. I love being active so the work I have isn´t a problem. I could never have an office job that keeps you sitting all day," he told Nextshark.com
 
"It was that 7-to-4 job with no flexibility that was the problem. I couldn't just go on long hikes whenever I had the need for it. That's also why I decided to start my own business — now I am my own boss." 
 
“The only thing I regret is why I didn´t do this years ago. I now have the freedom to work a lot in periods, and truly have the passion to follow my dreams. It´s gone surprisingly well.”
 
His Instagram blog, Akiakthehusky, subtitled "A dog with a nose for adventures", now has more than 10,000 followers on Instagram.
