Hiking Menu


This summer my baby belly is so big and my speed so slow I'll better settle for short hikes in nearby national parks. Basically in the Southern Finland they're so small you can't really do more than weekend trips in them. If you really want to see wilderness you have to go up north to Lapland. Last summer I made my first "real" hike in Urho Kekkonen National Park and now dream of more of those. Seeing this post about food packages of a one-night trek I realized someone might find use for the food list of our last year's hike, since I think we managed pretty well for two complete newbies. My spouse hadn't done even short hikes before this but thanks to compulsory military service Finnish men have to through I felt more than confident he'd understand what he's doing.

Our actual trip took six days but if you're going to wilderness it's always a good idea to take one or two days worth of extra equipment. And if you're going to walk 90 kilometers carrying everything you might need on your back (plus carry the containers away as well), you want to pack as lightly as possible. So that basically means you don't want to drag much liquids, tin cans or fresh veggies along. In the autumn there are mushrooms and berries you can use but otherwise the national park rules limit foraging ideas quite a lot. I like to think myself a good packer, and with planning we managed to keep the starting weight of both backpacks well under 20 kilos though we carried along a tent we only used once and my old but loyal camping stove is probably one of the heaviest available. Also, you'll want everything to cook fast and be easy to prepare without a proper kitchen.

Some of the convenience food packages we bought from a local market probably had some animal-based ingredients in them (we didn't check) but there shouldn't be anything here you couldn't find vegan.
