... their nature and training program. The huskies truly love the cold climate as well as running and pulling the sleigh. The hosts will then guide you through on how to drive a husky sledge and once the lovely huskies are harnessed in teams, take off with the howling dogs. After this amazing and unusual experience, have a coffee break at the kota and hear more about the life at the farm. Transfer back to hotel.

We started with the snow mobile ride. Serene drove her ...

Quite unlike the US where I very often get, “George?” [Have I mentioned how I dislike being called that? If you’ve known me in the past 40 years, of course you have.] So we’re off to a good start. [And it ...

Don't throw stones in glass igloos

... and not much else. Granted, we have arrived too late in the season for summer activities and too early in the season for winter activities but still!!!
