"Hiking the Kettunkierros --- Part 7" Kouvola Travelogue by gubbi1

Kouvola Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 85 photos

Suddenly the ferry is in sight. You might wonder what this is, especially seeing the ferry on the other side with noone on it to bring it to your side. But just go further, everything will end up fine.

We have now reached the 'Foxferry'! But you soon will need arms like a bear.

Fortunately there is a part covered by a bridge, so no need to use your arms for all the distance...

When jumping on the ferry do not forget to have a look at the lake!

This is the ferry, the small thing at the end. I took the photo after reaching the other side.

You will need to pull the rope to get the ferry moving. If you are lucky like me and the ferry is on the other side, you will have to do the pulling twice. One time to get the ferry to come over and then with you onboard to cross the water. It is hard to imagine how resistive the water can be when pulling the wet rope... but I managed and after the pain was gone I thought it was real fun :)

From the end of the ferry you can see the bridge again in the far end. This view ends up the hike before leaving to the parking. What a great hike!

This is the printout of the Kettunkierros. I hope you liked it!
