Our first visit beyond the Artic Circle was done with the aim of seeing and photographing the Northern Lights. What we got was a lot more. The trip included Finland and Norway, snow mobiles and dog sleds, saunas and boat trips, good food, reasonable prices and some really nice folks!

Here are some of our experiences in -27 degree Celsius temperatures
