Next to lake Pielinen going North you find a very small village called Koli. Named after the nearby mountain, well a hill (365m high!). After dropping my stuff at another official campsite run by a lovely old Finnish couple, I am off to go on a hike. There are several trails set out on and around the hill.  I chose to follow the trail that passes the summit for the views. And it is worth it. The view from the top is amazing. Suomi seems very flat indeed if you can look this far from a hill only 400m high!

The other trails seem to go through similar nature, so decide to only hike this one trail. If the weather stays ok I love to travel even more North to see if I can spot some reindeer...

Flat ?
400m is flat? Coming form a Bolivian, clearly, from an English, understandably, but from a Dutch....
Finland looks really good Angie, the pictures are great.
Keep rolling!
