Kopparnäs – Störsvik

Kopparnäs-Störsvik is on the border with Inkoo, and I spent one night there in one of the modern wilderness shelters.

Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t great during my visit – it was cloudy, and there was fog too. Luckily the fireplace in Sandarbukten was very well done. There were two modern wilderness shelters, a toilet, and a hut with firewood. There was also a hiking trail which we didn’t hike.

A friend of mine and I shared one of the wilderness huts. We inflated our sleeping pads and made a fire. The temperature was around 0 ° C, and I fell asleep at 11 p.m. while the others spent a few more moments by the fireplace.

I woke up at 6 am the next morning and was able to take a few pictures during the blue and golden hours, the best times to take pictures. The sandy beach was only a few steps from the fireplace, but the sea was still frozen.

However, we noticed that migratory birds were returning to Finland, so nature was not so quiet in the morning compared to the previous days in winter.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any great pictures of the birds, but a few landscape pictures turned out quite nice.
