Lapland V. A day with the Huskies

When I started planing this trip to Lapland, I was sure I wanted to do one special activity there. For a region where snow covers everything for most part of the year, there are so many things to do there… Cross country ski, snowshoeing, ice fishing… I can do a […]

Our first days in Lapland were a great adventure. Driving close to the Arctic circle on frozen roads, hiking and snowshoeing in forests out of a winter fairy tale… (you can see photos from these previous days here, here and here) But as the end of the trip was coming […]

Oeschinensee

One of the things I missed the most when I was in Spain these last holidays was the snow. Even if some snow flakes fell in Madrid during Christmas, they melted right away… So I was looking forward to come back to Zurich and enjoy the winter landscapes here. But […]

Kings Canyon National Park

The next stop of my trip in California was Kings Canyon National Park. I didn’t spend a lot of time there, it was the second part of the second day I visited Sequoia NP, as the two National Parks are very close to each other. And you can see almost […]
