Lapland and the Kola Peninsula

AFTER FIFTEEN YEARS of traveling to Arctic wastes around the globe, I had come full circle and was back with my first love.

The first time, we were only sixteen years old. Clutching our student discount tickets, we had climbed aboard the train at the Gare du Nord in Paris with our tent, fishing rod, and backpacks, and had stayed on, heading north, until the last stop Kiruna, Sweden, above the Arctic Circle. Wide-eyed at the vast space in front of us, we set off on foot across the great plateaus of Lapland, where a few reindeer herders still lived. This was the start of a life inspired by the north.

Fifteen years later, driving my own team of sled dogs with Otchum in the lead, I was again traveling with friends on the great plateaus, planning a trip further east this time, to the Kola Peninsula (in the Soviet Union) in the dead of winter. Otchum was returning to his native country, a land he would never have left had our paths not crossed on the shores of Lake Baikal. If I hadn’t come along, he would have become a hunting dog.
