Finally at Tornio ! It was a long day, but now I'm extremely happy after finishing coastline paddling. It took 30 days as I expected in half-way. The last day was like the first one, sunny with mild or non-existent wind. Just great paddling day. During the day we visited Ykskivi daymark and Keminkraaseli lighthouse islands.  The day was full of long crossings and long last kilometers to Tornio...

Weather forecast was giving a warning of strong wind up to 14 m/s today, but the wind would calm down in the evening. Therefore we didn't had any rush to start paddling today, instead took easy and slept long. We enjoyed sunshine at the beach we were camping and followed the actual wind values of Marjaniemi, one of the closest weather stations. It was steadily blowing 13 m/s, but after 2 PM wind was starting to decrease. We had lunch before we headed to the sea at 4 PM. Direction was straig

Varessäikkä, Siikajoki - Hietakari, Haukipudas 35,66km 0 Kommenttia 0 Kuvaa

There were thunderstorms in the morning all around our camping place. It was raining and we had to wait until 10 AM before we dared to start to paddle 9 km crossing to Hailuoto island. We managed to reach Hailuoto and started the second crossing, which was around 12 km. Immediately we had to reroute and paddle closer to shore, because one of those thunderstorms was getting closer. Barely we managed to go ashore and get some shelter, before the storm hit. It took 1,5 hours and then we decided to

Paddling continued and we had all the day headwind 4-5 m/s from NE. First leg from Raahe to Tauvo was about 3 hours, after which we landed on the beach near Tauvo lighthouse. Day was sunny, but windy. We continued and passed Siikajoki delta, which was extremely shallow area and reached windmills at Varessäikkä.We tried to continue towards Oulu, but had to return back to Varessäikkä due to shallow waters. It was practically impossible to paddle. We need to do crossing to Hailu

Kalajoki, Kalajoki - Raahe, Raahe 62,05km 0 Kommenttia 0 Kuvaa

We had a plan to reach Raahe today and so we did! When we arrived to Kalajoki beach we had a rest of 3 hours and then started to paddle at 11 PM during the night. Weather forecast was expecting stronger headwind for this afternoon and therefore we decided to paddle as far as we could during the night on the good tailwind. After 4 hours paddling we pitched the tent at 3 AM on a beach at Pyhäjoki. We had a sleep until 9 AM and started towards Raahe at 10 AM. 7,5 hours later we arrived to

Fine paddling day again. Sunshine, mild tailwind and nice sandy beaches. We reached Kalajoki sand beaches today set a camp on a beautiful beach. We had one mistake on the route selection during the day and therefore the day was longer than expected.

1000 km milestone is getting closer and closer. Now we are nearby Kokkola city in Poroluoto island. There are "wilderness" hut and sauna located at this island. The cottage and sauna is owned by the city of Kokkola and they are meant for recreational usage. I don't know if wilderness is correct word for this cottage, because it's located close to the city, "wilderness hut" is more suitable word for the huts in the Lapland.  We were sleeping quite late this morning a

During the night wind was turning to blow from SE and I woke up many times to check if the water on the shore would still be lower than our tent on the beach. Fortunately water level didn't raise up to tent and we started against the wind this paddling day. There were still one longer crossing towards mainland, which went well despite of increased wind speed. On the way towards Pietarsaari we visited Hällgrund daymark, where we had lunch after 3 hour paddling. Delicious pasta :) P

This was the day of lighthouses, daymarks and long crossings on open sea. It all started at 15 km crossing from last night's camping place, Korsören to lighthouse island Ritgrund. Fortunately weather was fine, sunny and no wind. It took 2,5 hours to reach lighthouse. We had 1 hour break at Ritgrund after which we had another 15 km crossing onto a Mikkelinsaaret, which is part of Kvarken archipelago, the world heritage. So after 5 hours paddling we had a lunch at Mikkelinsaaret. On the

It had been raining during the night, but morning were cloudy without raindrops. I started at half past eight and headed towards north. The wind was mild and coming from SW, which was excellent for long crossings between Moikipää and Raippaluoto. I felt quite strong today due to shorter day yesterday and paddled 3-4 hours stretches. I had lunch after 12 AM and it started to rain heavily. I was completely wet and it lasted roughly 3 hours.The visibility was poor, but I managed to reach

The day was sunny, but windy. Wind was coming from east and in gusts I had to paddle with all my power. I tried to find a place to have lunch, but there aren't actually good spots in this part of coast. All shores are rocky or there are houses / cottages. Therefore I decided to have lunch at Moikipää, where I landed next to restaurant at 2 PM. The pizza tasted heavenly delicious. I decided to camp nearby and rest the rest of the day. Tomorrow I'll try to reach Vaasa, hopefully wind is

Wind was blowing all the night and I didn't start until 10 AM. Just a couple of kilometers away were small island, where Härkmeri daymark was located. I headed first to see the daymark before turned my kayak towards Kaskinen. The morning was nothing but easy. Tailwind, waves and my body was complaining all the time.  After tedious 5 hour paddling I arrived to beautiful Kaskinen city and I was ready to quit paddling totally. I took a long lunch break and did some shopping. After 2

Yesterday when I was arriving to Merikarvia it was already blowing 10 m/s from west and wind was increasing all the time. During the night and the morning it went up at 12 m/s and therefore I decided to wait for the wind to calm down a bit. I had the breakfast and lunch at camping place and when the wind seemed to ease a bit according the forecast I headed onto a sea at 2 PM. Wind was from NW and I struggled with 6-8 m/s tailwind first couple of hours. Fortunately weather was calming down i

Outoori, Pori - Merikarvia, Merikarvia 44,08km 0 Kommenttia 0 Kuvaa

Yesterday's long paddling stretch and late bedtime made me start a bit later today. I was feeling on my body yesterday still in the morning. It had rained during the night and it seems weather has changed now. It feels colder and the wind is increasing and turning to west / north west, which is not too good direction for me now. Anyhow I grabbed my paddle at 10 AM and headed towards port of Pori. I visited Ryssäntorni daymark at the harbour of Pori. The sea is more shallow and there ar

Halfway passed today! At the evening I passed Luvia, which is on a halfway from Virojoki to Tornio. It took 15 days and thus it would indicate it would be possible to complete Finnish coastline in 30 days... I started early at 7:30 AM and the first 3 hours paddling went on a 5-6 m/s tailwind (SW). On a way to Kylmäpihlaja lighthouse I visited Santakari daymark, when it was conveniently just on my route. It was only 1 hour paddling from Santakari to Kylmäpihlaja and I arrived nicel

Coastline paddling continues again. After Kökar trip I was invited by Jere to the summer cottage in Kustavi. It was great to spend marvellous summer evening with friends eating well, having sauna and swimming in the sea. Thanks a lot, Jere. Due to the late bedtime yesterday I didn't had any rush to start paddling again. Just after 12 AM I started from the camping area of Mussalo, where I stopped paddling one week ago. The weather was fine, sun was shining and wind was blowing 5-6 m/s f
