    Trip to Repovesi Nationalpark

    I made 3 days and 2 nights trip to Repovesi Nationalpark, This beautiful place is in Southern Finland.

    I went there with my girlfriend and my dog. We arrived to the northern part of the nationalpark on Thursday and camped near a parking place. On Friday we took our stuff to car and made 10km hike with just water and food in our backpacks.
    After the hike we went to the car and picked our camping equipment and made a camp to the same place as on Thursday. The northern part of the Nationalpark was nice and peaceful.

    Saturday morning we went to the southern part of the park by car and made a hike there with just food and drinks in our backpacks. The southern part was more crowded than the northern part of the park.

    This was the first time I had a chance to try my new hammock set. I bought my hammock and quilts from UKHammocks and my tarp from DD Hammocks.

    Pictures will show how beautiful this place is.

    I love Finland!

    You're photos are really great and you live in an amazing place. I love the photo of the two pups sitting in the woods.

    I don't know if it is Finnish tradition or not, but here some couples, who are in love, carve their names to locks and put the locks on the pedestrian bridge fences.
