Pulking

A pulk (from Finnish pulkka) is a Nordic short, low-slung small toboggan used in sport or for transport, pulled by a dog or a skier, or in Lapland pulled by reindeer. The sled can be used to carry supplies such as a tent or food, or transport a child or other person.

 

There is no better way to unload your back.

      1. I’m sure it was loads of fun for the children! Just a perfect trip for a family. Not too cold. It’s -15 deg C. here in Canadian prairies, Alberta. 🙂 Several days each winter we hit as low as -35 to -40 C.

      2. Yeah, kids loved it! We packed them well in the sleeping bags, but I don’t think we would do a prolonged trip at -30. 🙂 Good thing we live close to the coast and get some heat from the Gulfstream. 🙂
