From book reviews: "This really is guidebook writing at its best." "Overall, this is one of the best guidebooks I’ve seen on backpacking in Scandinavia." "The book does a very good job at its two main tasks. Does it make me want to go hiking in Finland? Yes. Does it give me the information I need to do so? Yes." (I stuck this post to the top of my blog, so the newest post is below this one.)

Have you ever skated on a frozen lake? That is one hilarious activity!

I had a magnificent birthday present for my 50th anniversary: I got a possibility to do a five weeks long hike trough five large wildernesses. See the long hike as a slideshow one pic per day!
More pics of wild beauty, and pics from our family hikes, and more cloudberries than I've ever seen...
In this twelve post series I've told about over one hundred wilderness huts, about their origins, and with map links. After this it's time to write about something else... But first welcome to see 15 more hut pics! 🙂
Many cozy and personal wilderness huts are built by hiking associations or such. See some examples.
