The Call of the North

The frozen north calls to me every so often and I just have to go – it makes me feel like I am heading to Narnia. There is something magical about the Kamoos light in the month of December which only happens when the daylight and arctic mist meet to shed a radiance of cloud berry coloured light across the snow. Pristine, sparkly, yet inviting, the arctic is a site to behold. Frozen lakes, powder snow and fells await as the cold crisp dry air nips around my nose. Wearing layers of specially designed Finnish romper suits, I have my family in tow where we head to Taaivanvalkealt to seek out Santa Claus at the special Tonttula Elves Cottage.
