I've been hiking a lot lately, and therefore I've had too little time for blogging. I try to be more active now! Here's some pics from first snow hikes.
Story of a 600 km long hike. Outside marked trails, using ultralight approach.
Is there any sense in hiking ultralight? Is it safe? Is it only for marked trails? Can you enjoy your hike if you discard many of the equipment you usually carry? Yes, yes, no and yes.
Do you nurture dreams about hiking 1000 kilometers? Or backpacking for a month or two? Here's first of a series of posts on these subjects.
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.
