Two weeks ago we packed our things with Rasmus and his family and headed on a little family trip to Himos, Finland.  It was a three-day trip and was filled with fun activities. Just before Christmas I spoke with his mom about that I have been wanting to go someplace more north with a lot of snow and few weeks later I got this letter from Himos that we could do this together. I had never been there so it sounded like a great plan! :)

Right after we arrived, we had planned a husky farm visit. It is called McAhon husky farm ( find it HERE ).  They had over 40 happy pups and we got a chance to go on a husky-ride safari as well. I had never tried it and it was sooo much fun!! 😍We got to 'harness' the dogs and pet them and spend time with them. They also shared loads of fun facts about the dogs.

On the next day after breakfast we went to try out Arctic floating. They give you this fully water- and coldproof suit, that it big and looks weird. Then you put this on and go into the ice cold water. You have to kind of squeeze the air out of your suit once you are in. It's super strange feeling, haha. You can also try to walk on the thin ice and fall through. It's actually pretty funny thing to do with the suit on as you never know when you'll fall but you'll be still fully safe. These suits are used by the rescuers that drop down from the helicopters into  the water to save people. Anyhow.. it was the sooo much fun again. Aand it was so amusing to see Rasmuses little brother ( 11 ) wearing grown ups suit - he looked and moved like some weird cartoon character. 😃Find more about the Arctic Floating HERE 

During these two days we ate tons of pizza, enjoyed SNOW ( omg I loved it the most ) and went onto the slopes. There were so many different slopes to choose from and you we rented our equipment also from there. Their team was quick and super helpful. I will drop a link to them here as well - HERE. It was a true winter wonderland.

On the last day, just before heading back we went to Nurmolandia Animal Farm. It was like a tiny zoo with some awesome happy animals like donkeys, goats, cows, horses, sheep, bunnies,  chicken and so on. :) It was cool to feed them and pet them and get to know a bit more about them. The goats where the coolest because all they wanted to do was to follow us around. They were adorable!!😍

Himos was great! It you want to find out more about the accommodations and all the fun things you can do  - find it HERE & HERE!
