Lake cottage - day 8August 17, 2019 in Finland ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C
Our final day at our lovely lake... We climbed a 55 meter high rock (which is very tall for Finland!) for an amazing view and afterwards just enjoyed the good weather at our cottage.
After a short stop in Savonlinna, we cruised north to National Park Linnansari. An Island in the biggest lake of Finland, lake Saimaa, with nice hiking and views. And, when we arrived at our cute little cottage in the evening, the skies we're clear for a change, so another camp fire was basically mandatory ;)Read more
When in Finland, you can't not visit a lake, it's actually really difficult as well considering there are approximately 187,888 lakes in the country.
This one is around half an hour from the center of Tampere and is great to go to for a couple of hours. Easy to walk around the entire lake, with great spots for pictures and a picnic.
Next stop, Kuopio!Read more
A little over 2 hours by train and you'll find yourself in Tampere, a nice city (with a lot of construction on the main road now, haha) surrounded by lakes. It has a few nice spots and viewingpoints, but the surroundings are much more impressive as we'll discover tomorrow :)!Read more
Day 2 was slightly more rainy, windy and gray, but nice nonetheless! Took the ferry to Suomenlinna and walked around for a bit. The weather didn't really improve, so after we looked for things inside, like lunch (great burgers from bun2bun!) and a visit to the library (very very nice).Read more
First impressions last! Great food and beer on the first night, amazing weather on our first full day. I couldn't have asked for more! 😍
A very walkable city, with 11.5 km on the record for today so far. From church to church, foodmarket to waterside and great restaurant to a (very) Finnish bar. Much love for Helsinki!Read more
