We’ve almost come up as far up North as you can possibly get on Finnish ground. The drive through Northern Lapland has taken us through beautiful and remote landscapes. After leaving Karigasniemi for a quick stop in Norway we travel up along the Tenoriver to meet our friends who have the most wonderful riverside cottage close to Utsjoki.
Coincidence had it that we first met this family all the way down south in Christchurch / New Zealand for New Year’s 2018 when we had just recently found out I got the job in Finland. Now after 1,5 years we find ourselves reunited in the completely opposite side of the world. We spend two relaxing days here enjoying the remote and untouched nature, fresh fish from the river, campfires, sauna, a small hike, lots of coffee and lovely company before heading to Norway.
