On a recent trip to Finland, I became a Finn, or at least I felt like it. I went ice fishing near Oulu Finland, ate reindeer meat (sorry Rudolph), went snowmobiling in Iso Syote, dog sledding, and tried snowshoeing on the Baltic Sea. Of course my research wouldn’t be complete without trying a few Finnish drinks. Read in German at: Hundeschlittenfahren in Iso-Syöte, Schneeschuhwandern am baltischen Meer in Oulu (Finnland), or Reisen wie die einheimischen Finnen.
And Rudolph was actually his name. Visit Rudolf in Oulu, Finland.
Cruising at top speed through the forests of Iso-Syöte in Finland got my heart racing, well OK, it wasn’t exactly at “top speed” but it was fast enough for me. How fast have you gone on a snowmobile?
Love the bright colored buildings on Pikusaari Island in #Oulu, #Finland, would love to come home to this after snowshoeing on the Baltic Sea.

View from dog sled in Syote, #Finland - so much fun and I loved that these dogs had a very good “benefits package” Finding Peace while Dog Sledding in Iso Syote, Finland.
Great day of dog sledding and loved knowing how well taken care of the dogs were: Finding Peace while Dog Sledding in Iso Syote, Finland.
Good morning Iso Syote #Finland - not a bad view to wake up to before dog sledding nearby.
Discovering #Finland - Finnish cocktails go perfectly w/ karaoke. Had no idea karaoke was so popular in Finland. (Taken with instagram)
