Hiking in Espoo, Finland

Through a crazy set of events in South America, we had the distinct pleasure of being invited to stay with some gorgeous souls in Finland. We jumped at the chance, and moments after flight AY666 from Copenhagen to Helsinki landed, our friends took us to lovely Espoo, Finland for a few days at mökki.

Their summer cabin was a perfect base for what turned out to be a hike of a lifetime. Set back in the Nuuksio National Park, C and I were able to unplug for a couple days and connect with nature. These are the photos that we feel tell the story of our experience…

Our friends Heini and Iiro are really great navigators, even in the middle of a forest in Finland.
