Emma was keen to see the Reindeer, so we set off to look for them, using her “spark”
Many people use these here. They have two thin metal runners and either a chair or basket on the front. Emma sits in the chair and I stand in the back and move the spark along the ice by pushing with my foot on the ground. You can move very quickly, but of course it doesn’t work in deep snow.
It was not long before we spotted the first Reindeer
As we sat quietly and watched the herd gradually moved closer and closer until they eventually crossed in front of us.
We also had a very unexpected find while we were out……
Roe deer tracks!!
Emma wanted to travel further into the forest to look for animals so we headed off on the snowmobile.
