Two weeks ago we made a 110 km hike in Lapland, Finland. It took us 5 days to complete this journey. We hiked from city called Kilpisjärvi to the highest point of Finland which is located in Halti fell (mountain) in the border of Finland and Norway. After reaching the highest point we hiked same route back to Kilpisjärvi. This was by far the toughest walk we have made so far. 110 km the most harsh environment in Finland. Terrain was very rocky and it rained heavily two and half days. But with good planning we got through of this and I managed to get some good shots.
From this day on I will present to you pictures from this adventure. I will publish a photo with the story once a day for one week. There will be also some behind the scene pics.

The first picture is taken in the first camp. The start for this trip was really tough. We only walked 15 km in the first day because of a heavy rain and the terrain was awful. Slippery rocks aren’t that nice when you are carrying heavy backpacks. This panorama was taken in a place called Saarijärvi. The farthest fell in the picture is “Saanatunturi” which I think is the most beautiful fell in Finland.
