Are you ready to walk on the Little Bear Circuit (in Finnish: Pieni Karhunkierros)? It is a moderate, 12 km long hike full with spectacular places such as suspension bridges, waterfalls, and viewpoints. The park is next to Kuusamo but it is also doable as a day-hike from Rovaniemi as well.
Are you planning a trip to Finland? What to wear during the winter? I had the same worries many years ago, before my very first trip to Finland. I’m from a warmer country (Hungary), where -5°C is considered very cold. I hardly could imagine how -20°C or -30°C feels like. In the Nordic countries life still goes on despite the freezing temperature. You can’t just curl up on your sofa for the whole winter and stay indoors. You would miss the snow and the northern lights, just to mention a few. I will share my tips on clothing that helped me survived my first (and every) winter in the Nordics.
