Pirch in Lapland

Beautiful isolated pirch tree in Finnish Lapland near Hetta-Pallas national park. One of the most popular hiking trails in Finland offers you beautiful sites in plain Finnish Lapland. The best time to go there is probably the second week of September when you have the best changes of experiencing autumn colors of the nature.

Tip: Take mosquito oil. Not that citronella shit but proper killer stuff with high DEET percent. THe best one you can find in Finland is OFF Punkki Mäkärä which has about 50% of the good stuff. In Asia we have seen bottles with 98% of the stuff but I guess it’s illegal in Finland. Another really good alternative is “Pikiöljy”. Use both externally.
