This morning was - 17 C down here in the river valley. When the sun rose everything came alive, and the frost and snow twinkled.
With the clear winter sky it is time to come and watch (and make some photos of) the Aurora Borealis. These pictures of Northern Lights over Rajamaa are taken by Xavier Girard, who will be the tour-leader on some photo safaris this winter.
The activity in the sun is strong and this winter we expect nice Northern Lights. The surroundings of Rajamaa is optimal for watching and taking pictures as there is very little disturbing lights.

The sun sets early over Muonio River, and the last beams twinkle in the icy branches.
Soon the sun will not rise at all. 6 weeks between the first of december until the tenth of january.
After that it will start to be lighter and lighter every day.

Today some reindeers wanted to cross the ice of the River Muonio from Sweden to Finland. It is still open water where is the strongest current, so they had to turn back. In a short while there will be ice over the whole river, so then they will try again.
More ice sculptures from the restaurant roof!
After some days of cloudy, snowy weather, the sun came out today.
Ice angels and more art works by nature.
Yesterday evening arrived the Polish National Ski Team. Trainer is Ivan Hudac, our old friend, who has been at Rajamaa also with national teams from Slovakia and Slovenia.
The conditions for skiing are exellent, with 28 km of good tracks at Olos. Down in the valley at Rajamaa it is around zero and wet, but on the mountain by Olos it is below zero.
Now the team has left for their first training, so we will here what they have to say, when they come back for lunch.
