Ich denke gerne an meine Woche dort zurück. Ist leider schon viel zulange her. Beat und Rena waren die Camp/Lodgemanager.

Es waren super schöne Tage

Wir haben es dort nur im Dunklen erlebt, und es war noch die ‚ungemütlichste‘ Hütte, vielleicht genau weil es Strom gab?! Wir denken soooo gerne an unsere Woche bei euch zurück, es war DER Urlaub unseres Lebens! Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!

Electricity was at Tiurajärvi, wasn't it? 🤔 I hope I remembered the name right. The mökki at Kangosjärvi is lovely too, though 🤩

Since when is there a big window and electricity at Kangosjärvi?

Report from Yle: Finland’s largest grocery retailer, the S Group, reported soaring profits last year. Its operating result for 2023 was 447 million euros, up by 37.5 percent from the previous year – while consumers saw food prices rise throughout the year.

The S Group's pre-tax retail sales grew by 5.5 percent from the previous year, totalling 14.2 billion euros.

Now I understand, why tomatoes cost up to 23 Euro per kg and cucumber more then 5 Euro per kg. The food market in Finland (and Sweden) is manimpulated by few companies. No competition at all.

Love the colours of the Lapland skies ... 💖

In 2012, we had -41 on Sunday and 0 on next Saturday... I remember this feeling of warm at 0 😅

Temperatures are already much more comfortable. "Only" -30 feels ok when it was -40 before. If the weatherforecast is right it will be +2 on Monday... The Arctic Redpoll already comes for food ... See MoreSee Less

Last days had been pretty much in the minus degrees. So we have to stop for a few times to let people walk a bit in deep snow to warm up. Actually the coldest - many years back - we run tours had been below 50. So 40 seems to be quite ok ... See MoreSee Less

I remember my advance Tour with -40. It was awesome

😍

I remember a -42 in 2012... My husband's toe also! 🥶

We were there when it was -15 sounds like summertime compared to this...

Best Moments in 2016. Never Forget

Ich hoffe, die Temperaturen steigen bis Ende des Monats wieder.🫣

All the best for 2024. The new year welcomes us with a bit of low temperatures which might even drop to the minus 40. This is also promissing as the sky will be mostly clear and we will see the first sun after a month. ... See MoreSee Less

I hope nobody was hurt 💜

Almost exact 38 years ago - on my first day driving dog sledges - my handle bar did crash like the photo shows, without any droppings. Old Äkäskero guests may remember old Gerd. He did fix the sledge - as far it was possible in the swampy region - I got his one - he did drive home with the broken utility.

Ich sehe, das ist eines der neuen Modelle. Doch nicht einer von denen, die ich im Sommer gebaut habe🙈

Last time they were running after my snowmobile 😍. I miss it so much.

They are looking so patient in this photo. And is that black puppy Xia? Or is it a W-puppy amidst the Vs??? 🤔

Meine Güte, ich erinnere mich noch an meine erste Überquerung des Kangosjärvo. Hatte mich so etwas von verfahren und wurde per Handy gelotst. Passt alle auf euch auf und geniesst die Saison.

By now the males are already loosing their antlers. Females and castrated males keep their antlers during the winter which gives them a higher position in group.
