Skiing at Äkäslompolo above the Arctic Circle

Candle at Velhonkota - hut

It has been for awhile since the last blog writing. Just few seconds ago temperature outside was -18 degrees and 2,5 hour ski exercise has been done for today. The sun is not raising at all here, but there's still couple of hours light during the day, after 3 PM it's getting already dark.

The view from today's ski track

The aim is to gain good amount of kilometers by skiing during this visit to Äkäslompolo, above the Arctic Circle.The skiing events in January and February require some training before them...
