After the dog sled adventure (see here) the second day was dedicated to snowshoe walking and ice fishing. Again with all the activities, cold and unpractical clothing I didn't take too many pictures, but here's an impression

1: Hiking through the woods

We had a good guide and during the walk he pointed out all kind of animal tracks in the snow.

2: The lake, before we littered the surface with a lot of snow shoe prints

3: Drilled my first fishing hole (through ~25 cm hard ice)

4: Some of the group were really "into it"

5: But we didn't catch any fish, so the lunch had to use the contingency supply of pork sausages

6: Next to our group (~12 people) there was also a lone Finnish ice fisherman trying his luck a bit further on the lake

All A6000 + E18-105/4 G

Next up (in a new post) will be the visit to a reindeer farm the following day.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

If I were your guide I wouldn’t have fed you! Catch a fish!

Quite difficult to get a grip on how big the white emptiness of the lake is. Including the branches was a good idea but not sure how big they are or how far the trees are. A very, very peaceful and almost color-free scene.

No scale issues with the hole!

Is this all a gentlenwarm up for a run at the North Pole?
