I had a five day leave from work during Easter - what a nice excuse for an overnighter! This time I went hammock camping to Nuuksio.

The weather was rather dull and I met few people during my trip. On nice, sunny days Nuuksio can get quite crowded.

In the city the spring has already taken over but in the forests of Nuuksio it was still winter. The temperatures hovered around freezing. As I sleep cold I brought my winter sleeping bag with me - a wise choice!

Despite the snow the spring was in the air: birds were singing, water was burbling in the burns... Maybe the next time I visit Nuuksio the winter is nothing but a memory?

  1. Gosh thats brave. I like the comfort of walls and warm air in winter. Well done.

    1. I like both walls and no walls. It good one doesn't need to choose just one type of backpacking! :)
