When we were invited to Slovenia I didn't really think how beautiful country we would get to know to!
Before the trip I convinced my parents to visit Slovenia as well so the way we travelled by hiking is definitely not the only way to see the country.
Here are my top picks what to do and where to go in Slovenia:
2. Hike to Seven Lakes
The Seven Lakes mountain hut was a great basecamp to continue hiking.
3. Lake Bohinj
Hope your travels will take you to Slovenia too!
The event had so many nice people participating and we became friends with quite few of them. This event will be held also in summer 2018 so check out the information from Inari website and go there. I am sure you won't regret that.
Here is a list of the most memorable places I've ever slept in.
1. Syote National Park, Finland
2. Jasper National Park, Canada
3. Torres Del Paine, Chile
4. Sarek National Park, Sweden
5. Kvalvika, Norway
Tämän retken teimme yhteistyössä Suomen Ladun kanssa tarkoituksenamme kannustaa teitä kaikkia nukkumaan ulkona 17.6.2017. Ensi lauantaina kannattaakin suunnata retkelle nukkumaan ulkona tai vaikka pystyttää teltta vain omalle pihalle. #nukuyöulkona

This trip we made with Suomen Latu as our purpose to encouraging people to sleep outside 17.6.2017 and that is why this is written mostly in Finnish.
Our goal was to have fun and enjoy the nature. We had yoga in the woods, went to tent sauna and swimming. We cooked the most amazing dinner on a fire and talked about life. It was pretty surreal and amazing experience getting to know with these four girls without any roles that we have in our daily lives.
Thanks girls for the most amazing trip I could ever ask for.
Retken tarkoituksemme oli nukkua ulkona ja viettää hyvä retki. Saimme paljon enemmän, neljä uutta ystävää sekä perspektiivejä maailmaan toisten silmin. Meillä oli ohjelmassa villiyrttien keräämistä, metsäjoogaa, saunomista telttasaunassa ja uintia. Kokkasimme avotulella illalliseksi lohta ja vihanneksia. Jälkiruuaksi valmistimme maukkaita lettuja.
Aamuun heräsimme usvan keskeltä, kuin valkoiseen satumaahan. Kävimme Henriikan kanssa melomassa ja kuuntelemassa heräilevää luontoa.
Yksi hienoimmista aamuista Suomen kesässä.
Iltanuotiolla juttelimme pitkään elämästä, retkeilystä ja matkan varrelta kertyneistä tarinoista. Uusiin ihmisiin on helppo tutustua, kun kaikki ovat avoimin mielin ja kuuntelevat toinen toistaan aidosti kiinnostuneena.
17.6 Suomen luonnon päivänä on hyvä päivä lähteä retkelle ja tutustumaan uusiin ihmisiin. Aina voi myös lähteä tutustumaan vain omaan itseensä ja rauhoittumaan luonnon keskelle.
Ulkona nukkuminen kannattaa. #nukuyöulkona
Patagonia trip with Hannes Becker, Daniel Ernst and Daniel Taipale.
We hiked The W in Chile for 6 days and Fitzroy in Argentinan side. The trip lasted for 3 weeks.
After 6 weeks of traveling it was time to say goodbye to Lapland. I still had one weekend left so I thought it should be something different. Something else than wandering around in the woods all by myself.
I ended up to the wilderness cabin located in an island. My friend Antti, who ownes the cabin is the best open fire chef I know so I kind of knew it would be an epic weekend. We had king crabs, reindeer and all sorts of veggies. All cooked with open fire. Loved it. Our days were mostly ice fishing and chilling. Boys got some fish, actually a lot, I got none. Zero. I have no idea how did that happen but boys said it had something to do with me falling asleep while fishing.. Maybe they were right..
Yep, once again I left my comfy hotel room and escaped to the wilderness. I bet my laptop enjoyed the warm bed.. The hike was pretty intense though. The path was icy and included some stairs, actually 300 of them. All covered with 1 meter of icy snow. Not my cup of tea to climb them with my 20kg heavy backpack on but there was no way to return. I just had to keep on going. The nights were well worth the pain. The bruises were nothing compared to the total silence and tranquility what I got when spending the nights over here.
While in Lofoten, you have a lot of options where to go hiking. If it's a summer, everyone with a little bit of experience can do these things. While keeping on mind that a hard means extremely hard. When talking about winter hiking, you really need to know what you are doing. Couple of times we had to face the fact that the nature was too tough to beat. This photo is actually from our last day in Lofoten. We waited for a week to be able to come here so no, the weather is not a joke over here.
The one and only, Hamnoy.
How often do you spend a night by yourself? And how often do you think about doing it?Nowadays I do this a lot. I really love it. Sometimes I get a bit scared of noises outside of my tent but I got used to it. I also got used to staying alone in the darkness. It's amazing feeling when it's just you and your thoughts in an isolated beach.
