Where I stayed

Set off at 9.15am for a 450k drive to Arvidsjaur, heading north.
Roads were a nightmare we must have come across approx 10 other vehicles on the way, made good time and arrived at 2pm.
Mark was on Mousse and Reindeer watch and after mistakenly pointing out 2 boulders and a wooden chair we found loads of wild reindeer (and a cat) great drive over, the roads here are amazing.

Decided against the campsites today as we needed a bar and a restaurant as well as other human life.
Checked into the Hotel Laponia which blew the budget a bit but hey, we have stayed on a campsite for the past 4 days.

Had dinner in the Hotel, we ordered Reindeer and Sirloin steak and shared, Rudolph was quite tasty but a bit chewy in parts, lovely chocolate fondant for desert.

A walk by the lake resulted in us making a camp fire, it was a good one.. see the pics.

Back to hotel for a few beers with the Irish, good night.

Bed for midnight, in time to get a picture of the midnight sun!
