What are The Big Four in Finland? Is it a great thing there are bears and wolves in our forests, or is it a scary thing? There's no doubt what my opinion is in this matter.
There is a saying 'Autumn colors are at their best in Lapland 10 o-clock on 10th September.' Is there any truth in that? And what plants produce this fantastic phenomenon?
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.
