Reindeer Sledding

A travel blog entry by bkerr

Last nights reindeer sledding was fantastic. The weather wasn't so great though. The -10 deg C was good but the snow was annoying sometimes. We first met up with our guide who told us some rather interesting reindeer facts and information about the Sami culture and people.

... Nona and the sled against a thin tree, which is when Thomas got off his sled to shout at me like I was a 3-year-old (or a dog..). Yay(!)

I finally did get the hang of it - literally. The trick is to move your entire weight onto one of the two gliders and then tug really hard in the direction you want to go.. don't think dog sledding is easy going!
