Our guide on this hike is Satu Latvala. Satu’s introduction with her own words:
“I love the amazing nature in its all shapes, but my soul feels like home on the fells. The higher fells, the better.
I am addicted to hiking since out there you will forget all your daily worries and you are present to yourself with all your senses and thoughts surrounded by the nature.
We have variety of enchanting places in Finland, but especially the Käsivarsi wilderness area in northwest corner of Finland is definitely my favorite place. My heart belongs there – beautiful valleys and rugged fells and cliffs. I feel like being in home when I am hiking there.
I have been hiking on top of the all over the 1000 meter fells in the Käsivarsi wilderness area. Based on my own experiences on the area, the idea of this hike has been planned.
The most enchanting cliffs in Finland hike follows my own route which has all the places that I want to share with anyone loving the nature. The rugged scenery is always breathtaking – it doesn’t matter how many times I have been there!
