Some more selected posts worth reading and inspirational blogs worth following – and a non related photo.


Sunrise over Huuskonselkä on packrafting trip at Pyhäjärvi.

Escape life in Canada” is a blog by Finnish-French couple Piia and Julien. At the moment they are writing about their epic, epic journey following the Great Divide Trail through Canada. 1300 kilometres in 37 days and what scenery! Plenty of awesome photos. Oh, and did I say it’s epic?

Parts 1, 2 and 3 are online. (And also available in Finnish! / Tarina löytyy myös Suomeksi!)

Totaalisen pihalle / Totally out” is a truly bilingual (all posts in Finnish and English / kaikki kirjoitukset suomeksi ja englanniksi) blog by Lauri Hilander from the very South-West of Finland. But he doesn’t limit himself in bouldering and sea kayaking in Åland Islands but also climbs around the world and ski tours in the North. Great guy with big visions. He’s blog is definitely worth following!

As someone into ski expeditions my pick would be the little different trip report from Sarek from winter 2013.

Backpacker’s Life” is a hiking blog by Ryan Grayson from the promised land of long trails and thru-hiking. I stumbled upon it on Twitter as Ryan is writing a series of posts on Nutrition for Thru-hikers interviewing sports dietitian Tavis Piattoly. Great information on nutrition for longer trips.

Parts 1 and 2 (out of three) are already online.

I’ve recommended Forrest McCarthy’s blog before and I’ll do it again. It’s a great blog with reports and photos from great trips and also helpful posts on gear and technique, especially regarding packrafting.

As examples of epicness and great content see: a report from a 24 day ski Traverse in Mongolia and Packing for Packrafting.
