If you want to hike in Finland in July, you need to prepare for two things. July is the hottest month in Finland, which is a blessing and a curse.
This is continuation to last week's post. This time our goal was to walk 100 km in 24 hours. Did we succeed this time? And what are the important things if you mean to walk very long day marches?
Have you ever wondered how long a day march is possible for a hiker with normal physical condition? Would 127 km be possible? We tried that one June.
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.
