The day started with a quick breakfast and -14 °C. Good that we had put our car’s engine heating cable 😀 though it did not prevent ice crystals from growing on the tyres
After having scratched most of the ice from the car windows, we drove to Kiilopää Fell Centre from where we started a short hike through Urho Kekkonen national park. Meanwhile, the temperature had dropped to -18 °C. I have to admit, in the first minutes this might feel a bit uncomfortable despite all the layers of clothes. But once you have walked some hundred metres – which is not an easy task if you sink into deep snow every few steps – you start to get warm. Anyway, the stunning view over the fells makes you forget that it is bloody cold. I hope our small selection of fotos helps you to get an impression about the beauty of Finnish Lapland.
