In May in Northern Finland you can expect heavy snowfall, extremely hot weather (+25°C), or anything in between. See paddling pics from May 2017 and May 2018 and be surprised!
Ahvenanmaa is one of the very best places for bicycle touring in Finland, and May is a brilliant choice of time for a flower lover.
Right now there's plenty of snow in Northern Finland and I've been writing about skiing much, so it's time to see how the hiking conditions look on the opposite side of the year. Autumn is a magnificent time for hiking! The 12 km loop Pieni Karhunkierros (Little Bear's Trail) in Oulanka National Park is one of the, or maybe the most popular day hiking trail in Finland. Here you'll find three hikes around this trail.
A tale of a 165 km unsupported solo skiing expedition off tracks. Isn't it dangerous to solo hike? Especially in winter, and in a large uninhabited wilderness? Well, yes it may be, but when you know what you are doing, not much.
In Finland we have this thing called 'Skiing holiday'. Of course you may do whatever you wish during your winter holiday, but personally I think the best option is to ski. 🙂 But - the ski track has to be beautiful! I'm not skiing for exercise, at least not only for that. I want to get a feeling of hiking.
On the opposite side of the year from February is August, which is a very good month for hiking in Finland. Let's see some hiking and paddling in two national parks.
What do you mean by word skiing? And what about winter hiking, can you do it in your country without skis? This is a long post.
