  • Luna – The End Of A Sled Dog Era

Our huskies are howling, as Johanna and her small team of sled dogs have set off on a short tour across the snow-covered lake. Only one voice in the choir is missing. Luna´s voice.

    Summertime Time is a strange thing. Especially the time division in days of the week.

    A day in the kennel

    What are our 8SeasonsHuskies doing all day long in the end of the winter? In the last blog posts, I told you a lot about us and our life up here in the north and how we deal with the crisis. Our dogs are not impressed at all by our worries. And thanks to your help, their everyday life did…

  • March 2020

    “And what have you done for the past two weeks?” Or “Corona can even find you somewhere in the middle of nowhere!” On Tuesday, March 10th at 6:00 a.m. I got into the car with Mona (a friend from Germany) and we drove the almost 700km towards Alta in Northern Norway to the Finnmarkslöpet. During this 1200km long-distance race, we…
