After the hiking on Koli and a great evening with another Dutch couple and a supurb bottle of red wine (nog bedankt!!!!) it is time to move on again. So the next morning packing and decided to ride North, as I really would like to see the reindeer. As I am in Suomi now, this is a must for me. Luckily I don't have to ride all the way to Lapland, as they run around free more south as well. Just an internet update pitstop in Kuhmo.

However the people here at the Kalevala spirit center told me about a local festival in a small village (Niva) tomorrow, so will probable check it out before moving on.
Kalevala is the name for the region here, and this center focuses on the old Finnish traditions and poems that have been written. The place is still actively used today, not only to inform tourists but more so to use as a place for locals to have gatherings and special meetings.

Hopefully a photo my first spotted reindeer will be attached to the next story.....
