Snow, Snow Mobiles and Tumbles



A visit to the Finnish Lapland is quite out of this world! It was an outstanding experiences, particularly for people who rarely get to see so much snow fall or winter sports. There was piles and piles of snow all around!! Yet at times the stark grey scenery was quite desolate.snowmobiletrader

At the winter sports resort in Ruka, Finland, very near the Arctic Lapland the first experience was at the Pohjanseita Camp where dinner included Reindeer meat, some thing that is a stable dish along with salmon, red wine and a shot of Finnish vodka taken neat from a small glass. After kitting up for the out doors at the Mosquito Kitting station at the Kuusamo airport and then for a unique transfer to the Camp on sledges pulled by Snow Mobiles, six to a sledge. Our snow mobile driver took a tumble and had to be righted; the sledge remained upright so we didn’t take a fall. At the camp we huddled around a camp fire and were served mugs of a hot brew that warmed us up. It was sweet to taste and slightly alcoholic.

While around the fire an Arctic « Medicine Man » came up to us. He spelt out the rules of fine living in the Arctic region which included preservation of the environment among other things. He then carried out a small initiation ritual post which presumably was for acceptance and protection!!! In this part of the world while people owned land, every one was free to walk around, un mindful of whose land it was. Like wise reindeer are mostly owned by some one or the other but they roam around freely in winter.

At the Ruka Resort the team had a thrilling experience of driving around a 30 km course on snow mobiles. It was quite an experience although some took tumbles but remained unhurt and also ran into a piles of snow and had to be bailed out. A13 km ride on sledges pulled by huskies to Kammi for diner was another highlight. There where outstanding snow laden scenery all the way down to the beautiful Chalet Ruka Peak Restaurant
