Flag of Norway  , North Norway,

During this trip I've used and will use many and varied modes of transport;




  • plane


  • taxi


  • train


  • bus


  • ferry


  • ship


  • and of course walking


This is however one piece of equipment that I didn't use.  But to my surprise and joy, many of the local people in the north of Finland and Norway use a wooden sleigh.  They kind of look like the image below but even more simplified.  They use it in the same way you would use a push scooter.  Kick with your foot and then slide.  Obviously they need good snow cover so I assume that's why I didn't see any south.

I nifty piece of equipment I thought and cute to boot!
