If you come from abroad, national parks are very good destinations to hike in, for they naturally present the very best Finland has to offer. However, if you live in Finland, or stay here for a longer period, you should know that national parks are just a tip of an iceberg. There are hundreds of hiking destinations suitable for weekend hiking, and thousands of great day hiking destinations. Short description of a paddling hike to one of those not so known places, and also thoughts about autumn.
What kind of a month is August for hiking? And how does Hossa National Park suit for paddling? Long story tries to answer these questions.
Best way to spend a hot day? Nice beach and lots of swimming, in my opinion. Are there many people in your favorite beach? In ours there is usually only our family. See a short video.
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!
