Arctic Holiday Day 3: Karesuando Church & Husky Safari
We didn’t last very long, we had managed a couple of hours sleep & even with hand and feet warmers Abbey woke up shivering. It was 4am and time to call it a night. Although I was pretty snug and warm, I struggled to get much sleep. We retreated back to the lodge and jumped into our warm bed.
So inviting and warming was this bed, we managed to sleep through the alarm and miss breakfast. Hungry again we suited up and made our way down the valley to a small cafe for some brunch, it wasn’t nearly as good as the Scandinavian breakfast we had at the lodge but it filled a hole!
Just across the bridge was the small Swedish town of Karesuando. We were on the northern border of Sweden & could see the village across the Muonio River from the lodge. Most notably seen is the church, it’s spiral can be seen from the top of mountain that we had been star gazing the night before.
