Norway is easily reachable from Finland. I’m a bit ashamed that I have travelled around the world but never ever visited Norway. But now it was a good time. Corona pandemic made summer plans to avoid flying so what about road trip thru Finland to Lapland where to cross border to Norway? Sounds amazing, right?
My plan was to go all the way to Lofotes, but I had only one week for this trip.
I went for a short sailing trip with a friend who has been sailing for while. Basically I didn’t have any experience of sailing, so this trip was full of excitement. How to deal with the ropes, sails, steering, wind and waves. We managed to get good wind while crossing a open part of the sea and that ride was a roller coaster for me. Look the video below to get inside a sailing experience.
Kayaking gives you a freedom to explore big rocks of the Repovesi National Park from the lake side point of view. Kayaking along the lakes, stranded islands and and the views on top of the rocks are something what makes your eyes go around. We went with my friend Luis to an kayaking adventure in Finland midsummer to explore Repovesi National Park. Watch the video of the adventure bottom of this article.
Liesjärvi National Park is located about 100 km to North-West from Helsinki. It’s not a big park, but it has few good and easy access sightseeing routes. Park is easy to access by your own car or by bus. I went for a trekking trip on Saturday morning till Sunday evening with group of friends. We started from the Savilahti camping site and decided to walk all over tothe Kaksvetinen camping site, where we wanted to sleep over.
Sometimes you don’t need big plans to go outdoors and have amazing time. You might just call to your friend, ask what’s up and go for a trip outdoors overnight. That is how this trip came to alive.
It was Saturday morning when I called my friend to ask if he has any plans for the night. Weather was hot and sleepinig outdoors in a hammock would be a perfect idea.
