Horsefeathers trip to Finland

Once the spring slash disappeared from the Central Europe, Horsefeathers crew set off for Finnish resort Ruka to meet some proper snow. How did it all turn up?

At the end of past season, in late spring, our Horsefeathers crew consisting of Petr Horák, Zoltán Strcuľa, Måns Hedberg and Antti Jussila went to Finnish resort Ruka. We made a serious road trip; 36 hours in the car, 2.750 kilometres, 10 food and beer stops and 0 killed reindeer. After this journey, we arrived at Ruka and spent there awesome seven days. Difficult to describe the vibe with words, so better if you sit comfortable, put the volume up and hit play.
