Evo Hiking Area – Staying overnight

Most of the days during my trip I do not know where I will end up staying the night. I keep it open as I don’t want to rush or staying at places that tend to be boring. So I need to be flexible. After Hämeenlinna I planned to have a look at the Evo Hiking Area. Here I had been before, but these places offer so many possibilities, that it was a pleasure to return. As it was to find a place for the night, I checked the map at the Visitor Center. A man passed by and I asked him if he knows any camping places closeby. He pointed out the large camping area, that normally is for big groups, and mentioned it is ok for the night. As it was officially closed also the toilets were closed, but for just the sleep it was ok, knowing I could come to the Visitor Center again the next morning. So I took the car for the handfull of kilometers to the camping place. It is really impressively huge. I set up my tent in a far corner close to the nearby lake, had some food and set down on a log at the sea shore for the evening. It is always a very beautiful atmosphere with the night coming in and light disappearing. As I had a long day, I went to sleep early looking forward for nice hikes here in Evo Hiking Area.

My tent set up. On the left of where the photo was taken, it is only 20 meters to the lake.

This is how the sea shore looks like. It came nicely that these logs were left here. Ideal for sitting and as table for a beer 🙂

When I arrived it was still bright day.

Had time to look at the camping area. You see it is huge. This structure is for having dinner. There are more of these.

As light started to fade, I went back to my tent and then enjoyed the lake view.

In the morning a coffee is obligatory. Also in the wild… 🙂
