Lapland

One year ago, I visited Finland or let's say Lapland, which is the northern part of this country.
It's actually a bit weird when I tell people I have already been to the North Pole, I mean, its the place where Santa Clause lives, so more like something out of a fairytale.

We went to Saariselkä, a small town 20 minutes from the airport in Ivalo. Ivalo is also known for its Lake Inari which is the biggest lake in Europe (I think.. it is huge anyways).

We rented a small cabin including a Sauna of course for a couple of days and then we had two days in a glass igloo which was amazing!
There we also saw northern lights for the first time!!!

About the Aurora or Northern Lights, well, people tell you to go up on a hill or mountain, without interference from man made light to see them..
To be honest, we went up a hill twice and still we weren't lucky at all. The weather at this time wasn't on our side. There was a lot of snow these days. So there was just this one day where we got the chance to see them dancing up at the sky.

My personal highlight was the reindeer and husky sleigh ride. And also playing with the huskies afterwards!
