    Onze overnachting in Saariselkä, Finland

    March 3 in Finland ⋅ ☀️ -18 °C

    Na een gezellige avond met team 88 hebben een heerlijke eerste nacht gehad in Saariselkä Finland; buiten temperaturen van -30 binnen heerlijk warm.

    We zijn fris op gestaan en na een heerlijk ontbijt klaar om een stukje te gaan rijden met de sneeuwscooter.

    Nu onderweg naar Rovaniemi, Dorp van de Kerstman 🎅🏽Read more

    Enerverende dag

    March 3 in Finland ⋅ ⛅ -11 °C

    Lekker bakje koffie drinken. Telefoon. Of we even een ander team willen helpen. Uiteraard doen we dat. Kost even tijd, maar dan zie je nog eens wat 🤗

    Getting better and better

    March 12 in Finland ⋅ 🌙 -12 °C

    The amazing Aurora Borealis once again showed us her lights. This time we were prepared and were able to set up the tripod. Using a Gorillapod in below freezing temperatures is quite difficult. It really is get the camera ready with reasonable settings inside, rug up, go outside, set up the camera on a tripod, point the camera in the right direction and go! I’ve found it best to set the camera on a timer and also set it take 3 shots at a time. Tonight’s light show had different colours including blue and purple. Simply amazing!Read more

    Heute noch Snowmobil u. nach Oulu

    March 3 in Finland ⋅ ⛅ -14 °C

    auch eine Super Sache,
    mal Snowmobil fahren in einer Hundskälte.
    Wir sind fast erfroren, ich hatte auf jeden Fall zu wenig an.
    Dann weiter nach Oulo, oder wie das Örtchen sich nennt.

    Go south!

    March 11 in Finland ⋅ ☀️ -19 °C

    We left the north and Norway behind this morning, docking at Kirkenes (and probably as close to Russia as we ever need to be - just 57km to the nearest border station) and travelled into Finland. The scenery changed quite quickly from the barren icy shores of the north to forests of pines. The landscape dotted by what appear to be nature parks or reserves with cabins and signs advertising summer activities such as kayaking and hiking. There is still of course snow, lots of it! Tonight we are staying in a glass igloo and the heavens are clear. Fingers crossed for a Northern Lights showing.Read more

    Light show

    March 11 in Finland ⋅ 🌙 -16 °C

    An amazing light show last night and we saw it all from the comfort of our beds inside the glass igloo. They came and went, waxed and waned but show up they did. Hard to capture on camera as I’m no expert.

    Kakslauttanen - Finnish resort

    March 12 in Finland ⋅ ☀️ -18 °C

    Today’s snow adventures have already included a husky safari, having frozen nostrils (because it’s so cold at -25c this morning) and sore ear tips. The snow resort is made up of an east and west village. Each village has glass igloos, log cabins and combo cabins (half igloo, half cabin). There is also a restaurant, bar and small shop, with loads of activities to keep everyone busy. The huskies are kept nearby, and they have about 200 dogs. All they do is pull tourists along. When they’re not working they are individually chained up near their kennels. I’m not sure if I actually agree with this. The dogs seem happy enough and eagerly greet visitors and are keen for the run. The guide told us that they are working to build individual enclosures for each dog, but this is an expensive process. Tonight we move to a log cabin which has its own sauna.Read more
