Huskysled­ding in Swe­den

Lonely Planet (UK) - - In This Issue... -

While stay­ing at the Ice­ho­tel, 90 miles north of the Arc­tic Cir­cle, my wife Eleanor and I were lucky enough to experience a husky sled across the frozen Torne River. Af­ter paus­ing for tra­di­tional fika (cof­fee and a cin­na­mon bun) along the way, we met and bonded with the dogs. The two pic­tured are sis­ters and are ap­par­ently in­sep­a­ra­ble. They were so con­tent in each other’s com­pany, I couldn’t re­sist capturing them cud­dling in the bit­terly cold sun­shine.
