In Finland there are a lot of bogs, about 30% of land area. Does that mean Finland has a difficult terrain for a hiker? No, not at all. Let me tell why.
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.
See some example pages in advance from my new book! Book Suomen autiotuvat (Wilderness huts of Finland) is going to be published at the end of this week.
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.
