This trip was full of “firsts” for me. First time in a survival suit, on a dog sled, ice climbing, driving a snowmobile. First time hanging out in an ice castle. Kemi’s castle is impressive. The amount of thought, design and work that goes into creating the castle is astounding. Yes, this is another activity that’s on the tourist track, but it’s fun nonetheless. For winter-lovers like me, I was in heaven! Drinking a hot beverage and eating dinner in the restaurant, sleeping on the thick animal pelts on the ice beds, surrounded by sleeping bag – this is all my idea of great fun! And the ice chapel? A perfectly lovely place to say one’s vows, in my opinion. Ice castle = check!
