Dog sledding in -30°C

Yup, you heard me right the first time. Minus 30 degrees. You wear 2 sets of long undies, 2 sets of fleece pyjamas, inner jacket, outer jacket, yet another jacket on top, glove liners, gloves, big gloves, sock liners, 2 pairs of socks, woolly hat and hood. Then you’re ready to get on the sled.

It’s really fun. You feel the cold a bit, but more than anything it’s quite exhilarating. The dogs are quite fast and you have to be careful not to slide up the side of the path and tip the sled over.

The dogs are gorgeous. They have big eyes and perky ears and lots of thick glossy fur.

We did the dog-sledding in Finland. I’ll talk more about our Finnish winter holiday next time.
