"Hiking in Patvinsuo National Park --- Part 2" Lieksa Travelogue by gubbi1

Lieksa Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 55 photos

The trail goes right up onto the rocky island, where trees find a much better place to grow than in the swamp.

Looking down on the swamp.

The island was cross fast and now we are approaching the next one.

Various plants have their home here.

Before disappearing in the forest again...

... we can get some energy.

Walking around I was thinking what to do if I would see a bear coming along. Using the duckboards there where not many options where to go to.

Especially in these dense forests the visibility was not too good and I hoped the bear would smell me in time to go away (not because I am smelly, but bears have an excellent nose, much better than a trained dog!).

Go to part 3...
