Polar nights in Lapland

Days are short just before Christmas...
...it's like a fairy tale landscape, a winter dream...

On the Kungsleden in Jäkkvik

The plan was to hike a week or two on the Kungsleden (King's Trail) but cold weather and a feverish cold forced us to cancel the tour only after two days... :-(
Start in Jäkkvik

Two years and a visit at Storforsen

Another year has passed. It's been two years since we came to live in Swedish Lapland. Time is flying!
The untamed waters of the Pite River (Piteälven).

Very nice trail along the Storforsen (rapids).

With fire places and firewood...great place for barbecue!

Snowmobile, icefishing & suovas

We don't have our own snowmobile just yet (still saving money) but some friends invited us to go ice fishing with them.

Didn't catch any fish but with suovas (smoked reindeer) our day is saved!;-)

Jan smoked some meat in the backyard. Beef (left) & Moose ribs (right)

Reindeers! - Rentiere!



We saw a big reindeer herd today!
Aren't they beautiful animals?


The Sami give their reindeers extra food during winter time to make sure they get enough to eat.

We are lucky to enjoy lots of beautiful sunsets.
