Millennium hike, part 9: Halti

Hiking in Finland - Day Trips and Backpacking Expeditions

Skiing in white-out for many days... How is it going to be with our goal to stand on top of Finland, Halti fell, when the millennia changes? Is it too stormy? No, we get extraordinarily good weather for that very day! Our two months long backpacking expedition across Lapland ends in this post. I also ponder what did I learn/get from this hike.

Opposites week 49, part I

I had first thought I would always tell about one nice hike during the month I'm writing the current blog post, but then I started to think that as I begin the blog in December, I will not lure anyone to hike in Finland if I only describe my hikes in December and January... Those are the harshest months of our year. So I decided I will select always two opposite months! In December I'll tell about a longer ski tour in December, but also about a summer day hike in June. In January the months I'll be telling about are January and July, and so on.
