About Katri - the Doer

In the early 2000s I walked, cycled and canoed in North Karelia for a living. That was to collect material for the popular outdoor guides Outdoor Karelia Finland and Koli Guide and the portal www.vaellus.info. They bear witness to a strong interest in the nature.
This interest has not faded.
Most of the routes described in the publications still exist and are available for those keen on invigorating activities in unspoilt nature! Also new routes have been added - but more on this later...


We are walking along a nature trail (level medium). Rocks and natural path, rocks can be are slippery when wet. Normal healthy is enough. Weather proper shoes.
