Venturing off on a dog-sled adventure is an incredible experience in and of itself, but making some new canine friends while you're at it... well, that's something that no words can really sum up quite as well as these heart-warming pictures captured of Olga Turilova during her Husky Tour in the Wilderness of Lapland in early March.
The winning photo shows a smiling Olga happily resting with her four-legged travel companions.
Of her adventures through Lapland, Olga says "I've met so many great people and had such a splendid time, that I will never forget. My main purpose was to see the Northern Lights, but I've got so much more and everything was just beyond my expectations."
GOOD TO KNOW: If you're planning a winter Lapland trip like Olga's, you'll want to pack some warm and wind-resistant clothing. See our tips here.
