I'm back from lake Inari Expedition, in Finnish Lapland, having explored different views on the natural environments visited, within the project WORLD NATURE EXPLORING .

Three quarters of the country are ...

Dawned with bright sunshine that it has shone all day, with a nice weather and visibility, but obviously with an icy cold. My conclusion is: cross Lake Inari in five days is possible, but hard.

I started the journey on a wide part of the lake, I have continued skiing between ...

Two days later for the loss of all my luggage, finally tomorrow morning I will be able to start the trip through Lake Inari.  I thought to do it in 6 or 7 days, but I will have to rush a little bit more, in order to complete it  have to go more to the point, and see if I can complete it on 5.

This week I'll go to northern Finnish Lapland in the Arctic Circle, in order to cross Lake Inari alone; the most boreal and closer to the icecap in Europe. On Friday 4/03 I'll fly to IVALO via Helsinki, spending one day there getting everything ready to start the journey on Sunday 6th, if conditions permit. Altogether I must complete around 145Km to reach Sevettijärvi, where I will find again ...
