    Three huskies moving south

    It has now been a year since our company had to declare bankruptcy. At the beginning of June last year, the bankruptcy estate was auctioned off. I still remember exactly how Johanna, Mona, and I sat in the garden and had to watch the buyers as they gradually carried everything from the property. I can still remember the feeling of anger, worry, uncertainty, sadness, and sheer horror. Back then, many people said to us that there is something positive in everything negative. I admit I couldn’t quite believe it. But now, in retrospect, all I can say is that you were right. The last year has influenced us all a…

    Donation-Stories No.01

    We got a phone call… Most of you know that we asked for help to support our dogs in end of March. If you are new on my blog here is a short summary about the last weeks: Due to the Corona crisis we lost our income from one day to another – all our tours got cancelled – now until September 2020. We usually offer nature-based travels to Northern Scandinavia, canoe and hiking tours around our homestead in Miekojärvi and trekking tours on the Lofoten Islands are just some examples. To be honest, I was shocked for a while. The fear to not be able to feed and take…

    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 not have to change significantly yet. A huge thank you to everyone who has helped us so far. You make it possible for our dogs to live the life they are used to … And what it looks like now in spring-winter , get some impressions… Morning routines It is…
