River Råne and Jokkmokk

The river Råne runs close by to where we live and the other day I took my parents to one of the many cabins along its route, which have been built for public use.

Accompanying us on our visit were Sebastian and Emma, who enjoyed playing there despite the thousands of moquitoes!!

We made fire in the stove in the cabin and cooked coffee and grilled sausage

The next day I took mum and dad to visit the Sami museum in Jokkmokk to learn about the people, their way of life  (here is a traditional turf dwelling)

the land and harsh conditions

and how they survived in a demanding climate and environment
