Hiking Club Ulvova Susi (UlSu) and Erasmus Student Network (ESN) Lappeenranta are organizing one day hiking trip to Repovesi national park on Saturday 17th of September.

Repovesi national park is a popular national park north of Kouvola, 100km from Lappeenranta. Length of the walk would be 12km/16km depending on the return route you want to take. You will experience the views from sharp Olhava mountain to beautiful forest and lake, walk through suspension bridge(s), see the old wooden slide for floating logs, prepare food at campfire, and much more. Previous hiking experience is not needed!

The bus will leave from the LUT main entrance at 7:30am (Saturday 17.9.). From Repovesi we leave at 6pm, being back to Lappeenranta until 8pm. You will need to carry your own food, nothing can be bought on the way. We have at least two longer pauses to grill sausages or anything campfire-preparable.

List of what you will need: Good shoes (sneakers will do), water-proof clothing in case it may rain, drinking water (some 1,5l), food and snacks, and some backpack to carry all these.

SIGN UP until 09.09.2016 possible by filling the following form: https://goo.gl/forms/RIRscogDK4Nc8QB52

The planned route goes from Lapinsalmi to Olhavanvuori (through canal Kuutinkanava). Bus will leave us at Lapinsalmi and pick up from Tervajärvi parking areas at the end of the day. The preliminary return is made in two groups, other going straight way to Tervajärvi parking area, another doing a detour via Lojukoski and east of the lake Tervajärvi.
