Finland to Japan



Excursion to the husky park
My booking for an ice fishing tour was canceled due to the weather, so I chose instead to join a husky tour. It was the husky park called "Husky Point" and it was about 30-minutes drive from downtown.

There were many uncommon items for Japanese on its property....

There were 6 people in the tour and we were all Japanese. It seemed that Rovaniemi was very popular for Japanese tourists. It was very different from Levi, the place I had visited before I came Rovaniemi.

We were supposed to drive dog sleds by ourselves. Because the dog sled course in the forest was really icy, it was too dangerous for us to drive ourselves. I really wanted to drive myself this time...it was really too bad.

There were lots of sled dogs, Siberian Huskys, Alaskan Huskys and maybe Alaskan malamutes. An Alaskan Husky was a dog I had'nt heard of before. It was a mixed-breed dog and it was bred for the specific purpose of sled races. So, actually the Alaskan Husky wasn't just a type of dog. It was generally defined only by its purpose, for breeding and sled racing. In short, it's sort of a mixed-breed, however every one has an all-round physical strength and ability for sled races. People said that they could run faster than other kinds of sled dogs and they could run a very long distance.
