What do you mean by word skiing? And what about winter hiking, can you do it in your country without skis? This is a long post.
This is a true story of a winter backpacking tour in -50°C. Weather forecasts had predicted -25, but the truth was... memorable!
If you want to head deep into a wilderness, you should rather choose another season than midwinter. 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.
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.
