Cool facts about Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak

Recently I posted on this blog about Africa's six tallest peaks, so I thought I'd follow up with more about the highest and most famous of those: Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro (dubbed "Kili," for short).

  • The hiking season is just staring up here in northern Finland and I can't wait to get back out on the bear trail (karhunkierros) again this year.

     

    The Karhunkierros, or Bear Trail, is an 80km long hike through the Oulanka National Park and the most famous of all the Kuusamo and Ruka hiking trails.

     

    The Oulanka National Park is the most popular national park in Finland, attracting almost 180,000 visitors every year and is well known for its diverse habitat, unique landscape and the variety of species that inhabit the park, from birds and animals to flora.

  • A world of unspoiled natural environment is waiting for you to uncover. Unfold the green veils of Dominica, the nature island of the Caribbean  and find the hidden natural treasures hidden beneath its rain forest. Learn the rich history as you hike the rugged terrains, through the paths of the early settlers, the Indigenous Carib Indians who settled on the island before the the 18th century, or walk in the footsteps of the slave warriors who escaped and fought for their freedom during the slave revolution in the late 17th to early 18th century.

    A true natural paradise.
