Hiking in Finland

Climbing, bikepacking, skiing & packrafting in the north

The Week in Review X

I’m back from the Ultralight Summit, and what an event it was. Great people, awesome country and scenery, lots of different UL gear, high camps, gear talk, and lots of laughter. Now planning for the Ultralight Summit 2013 starts!

1st HIF Reader Photo Contest

| Comments

Dear Readers,

it is my pleasure to announce the first Hiking in Finland Reader Photo Contest! The theme of the contest is Forest. It is chosen on purpose so broad to allow for your own interpretation of what you understand under forest, and that we get to see many creative and different photos. And why forest? Well, I really like trees and the forest. They’re magic places, home to many animals and plants, besides the different trees, of course. They give you shelter from wind and rain, and transform with each season - from a green jungle to a red & yellow paradise to a bold arrangment of twigs to a blossoming jungle again, it is ever changing.

You might not have realized the change which happened to hikinginfinland.com if you read Hiking in Finland in your RSS Reader of choice, but the site underwent a radical transformation. I started the blog on Blogger, Google’s blogging service, in 2009. Back then it was the best option, but as time went on, so did technology, and I increasingly grew frustrated with it.
