Petkeljärvi Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 27 photos

After we have thought about the war luckily we soon head to one of my favorite spots on the hike. Here the land narrows to a thin band between the lake Savolampi and the rest of the lakesystem.

This is Savolampi. If you wonder about the bright colors, it is exactly as I saw it there.

Hiking in Finland makes smart... The sign presents the bird Kuikka, which I actually have seen on one of the lakes here.

Reflections on Savolampi.

Here we are at the most narrow point of the 'landband'.

Standing here on the bridge and looking into the water makes you notice that the water is flowing from one lake into the other. In the current small fishes are standing to be the first if some snack is passing by.

We have now left the lakes and head into the forest, but duckboads are a good indicator that it is still a wet area.

This is a small swamp beside the trail.
