Living in such cold temperatures brings with it unique challenges. Animals can't drink water, because it is all frozen. To compensate for this, they need to eat foods that have a high water content.

The sauna is actually built on top of a lake, which is frozen over in winter. There's a covered hole that goes direct into ...
As we had cleaned our cabin and packed our bags the night before, we were quickly on our way to the hotel entrance for the transportion service back to Kiruna, which was scheduled to depart at 7 AM.
