The Finns know how to do outdoors, even if it’s only for a night there’s always an adventure to be had in the land of the midnight sun.
YV-leiri is a bike touring and camping concept ideated last year on Finnish online cycling community Yksivaihde.net. Since then people have packed their bikes and gathered around campfires almost every other month and the next camp is already being planned. The idea is not a group ride but just agreeing on the location and people keep popping up there with their tents, hammocks, sausages and beers all from their own directions.
A slingshot competition has been held many times but otherwise there are no has-to-do’s, agendas or anything forced. Just breathing the fresh air and doing anything you want in the wild.
Last weekend a group of eight guys spent a spring night in Porkkala. Ice and snow were almost totally gone and sea was open. Check the awesome sunset on the video “Overnighter in Porkkala.
