Welcome to Pieksämäki, Finland

Snow has melted and no more ice on lakes so welcome cycle tourers heading up to the North Cape or touring around Central / Eastern Finland lakes. You can find us in small town of Pieksämäki which has good rail connections around Finland.
Even though Summer is coming I would still bring a 3 to 4 season sleeping bag as the warm 20 - 30 celcius days can still be cool at night in a Summer only sleeping bag. This is not the South of Europe ;-)
Bring plenty of mosquito repellent too as the mossies are also known as the Finnish Air Force and a beautiful evening camped for free by a lake can be a nightmare without any. A tent with a good mesh opening would be good too.
In out of the way places mosquito repellent can cost more than € 10 if there is no competition
We can offer you sauna on Tuesdays and Fridays. Lake is only 50 metres away and the water feels good.
Look forward to meeting new cycling friends.
TERVETULOA
Jim, Terhi and Isabel Fullwood.
