Yesterday there was a HALO flight towards the North Pole to measure polar stratospheric clouds. On that flight HALO followed the CALIPSO satellite track to compare the measurements. During this flight the ground crew had some hours off during the afternoon. This opportunity we took to visit the nearby village of Jukkasjärvi. The village is next to a big frozen lake. So we walked over the lake where we met some dog sledges and jetskis. Afterwards we could warm up with tea and coffee in a Sami tipi at an open fire place.
