May is magical! I did one of my all time best hikes, by skiing, and the very next day we went canoeing and swam on a beach!
I've been skiing quite a lot this winter. Sometimes along ski tracks, but mostly outside any tracks. See pics of winter hiking!
Hiking in midwinter means long and cold evenings to spend in the camp. Or is there a way to make camp life warmer, more comfortable? Seems there is.
Midwinter is demanding time to hike, but sometimes this time of the year can offer unique experiences. I saw magnificent landscapes last week!
Going out to nature does good to us, that is generally known. It's always fun, and sometimes you encounter even more. I saw this weekend something special, a first in my life.
Is there snow where you live? Finland is divided into two this winter: in south there is no snow, in north there is plenty. See some snowy pics!
Story about ski touring across wilderness areas in Lapland. More pics and less text this time.

But if you know what you are doing, of course it is always possible to go for a longer trek. Let's see the most challenging conditions Finland has to offer.
