About the Book
There is an almost magical stillness in winter, and though the sun barely skims the horizon, for a few hours a day the sky glows deep blue and the snow seems almost luminous in the oblique light. Meet the local Sami people who survived and thrived in the remote north for generations on a diet of reindeer.
After the sun disappears, the sky lights up again with the mesmerising swirl of the Northern Lights – a phenomenon more moving in person than could ever be portrayed on paper or in film. Late into the night, explore the dark forest by dog sled, and cross the frozen rivers by foot. Enjoy the unforgettable journey.
