The arrival in Rovaniemi was nice and smooth, despite my host not being around at the time (she was working as a nurse at the ER). Her brother was there and he kept me company in the evening. We tried out the house-sauna and afterwards jumped in the snow. Freezing amazing! (quite lame, I am aware.)

Working in a hostel, you often hear people visiting specific attractions or, perhaps, you might even be the one suggesting some of those places. For us, the problem was that we hadn’t had the chance to go around much in the first few days.

Where we went kayaking was simply awesome; it really reminded me some places in World of Warcraft (I played that game soo much, that now every place reminds me a zone in that game).
Obviously I did not take any pictures while kayaking, I did not want to risk to ruin my brand-new camera.
Here is some shots of the area:
