Three National Parks in Finland – part 1

“The Country of the Thousand Lakes” attracted us to skate on the immense water areas. Out of Finland’s 40 national parks we chose 3 which – after investigating ice and weather conditions – were suitable for our skating adventure. North and Southern Savolax with Konnevesi and Kolovesi National Parks were first in turn.

Southern Konnevesi National Park

  • The park was inviting with its many islands
  • Winter trail on ice
  • Shifts in grey - a little snow on the surface

Kolovesi National Park

  • Icy road leading to Kirkkoranta - Kolovesi National Park
  • Strong tail wind - about 10 m/s
  • We had to struggle in the strong head wind
  • What a joy following the shore line in tail wind
