Day 2. Visit to the Port of Kalajoki, winter games, museum.
The day started off with a visit to the commercial and fishing ports of Kalajoki. There was very little activity, but the guide showed us around the facilities and we learnt that timber (wood used for construction) is the main exported product.
Then, we went to Pakka, an adventure park where we enjoyed some delicious soup, made our own “Tikkupulla” and played some winter games in the sand, as there was hardly any snow.
The Huskies were very sad about not being able to pull the sleighs, but we loved playing and running with them in the sand.
In the afternoon, we learnt about the Baltic Sea and how to protect it at the Marine Museum.
We ended our second day in Kalajoki by learning how to enjoy a proper Finnish sauna, which involves putting your feet in the cold iced water of the Baltic; an experience that we will never forget.
