Dogsledding in Finland...

Dogsledding karelia
A funny thing to do in winter (and of course somewhere with a lot, lot of snow) is dogsledding! I had the pleasure to experience a tour, my dear Finnish friends Henna and Lauri organised in the region Karelia, some kilometers away from the Russian border.
Dogsledding Karelia
The small, family-run husky farm Bearhillhusky is hidden from the outside world, in the middle of the wilderness. Barking of 40 Alaskan huskys greeted us. The first picture shows how excited the dogs were, when being prepared for the sleigh. The 1-hour-tour in the middle of snow-covered lake-forest-landscape was an amazing, but also pretty freezing experience. One person was steering the sled (pulled by 6 dogs) and 1 person was lying covered in warm fur....

 And the blue-eye-beauty, a bit tired after the tour:-))
