    Revontulet (Northern Lights) #5

    March 19, 2019 in Finland ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    Another fabulous look light show in Finnish Lapland. This time from our little cabin in Äkäslompolo. The night sky was awash with the lights dancing across the heaven and a much deeper green than previously. Sonia braved the cold to get the photos as I have been unwell and was just as delighted to view them from the cabin window. They never cease to amaze us.Read more

    Day 2 in Äkäslompolo has brought us snow. It is so quiet as it falls. I am still surprised by its stillness. I woke up to find the cars outside completely covered in snow. I am also beginning to perfect the art of bed making Nordic style. Yesterday was a day of rest as we have booked a series of things for the next few days. First up - ice fishing.Read more

    Cabin fever

    March 21, 2019 in Finland ⋅ ☀️ -1 °C

    After a day staying in as I was not feeling up to it, we set off for a trip to visit a reindeer farm owned and run by a Sami family. It was so good to see that pulling tourists through a forest is not the only business these reindeers do. This really was a reindeer farm where they are bred and well looked after. We learned so much and best of all the place was so peaceful. Even the family expressed how peaceful their lives were, with the work changing season by season. A truly wonderful day.Read more
