North of Arctic Circle 11/ Al norte del Círculo polar ártico 11/ Au nord du Cercle Arctique 11/ Ao norte do Círculo Polar Ártico 11

In English:

Day8 (Thursday, September 06, 2013). Distance: Round trip 65.0km / 40.7mi. Temperature: morning 10.0ºC /50.0ºF and evening 14.5ºC / 58.1F. Route: Muonio-Pallastunturi-Muonio.

When waking this morning our feelings were a little bit wistful, because this is our last day in Muonio. We saved for today the most difficult hiking to conquest two Arctic Hills at same time. They are called Taivaskero and Laukkukero. The height of Taivaskero is 801.9 meters / 2631 feet and the height of Laukkukero is about the same.

When starting our hike in the morning, the weather was foggy. We were a little bit afraid if we’ll get lost during our hiking. At times the fog disappeared and returned. When climbing to the top of Taivaskero the fog was so thick that we could not see two route marks at once. When finally at the top there was a surprise waiting for us. There was a monument in which it was told that it was just here, where the Olympic flame for the Helsinki Olympics held in 1952, was lit. I did not know and even not Anja although she worked many years for Finnish Olympic Committee.

Before hiking to the top of Laukkukero, we ate our packed lunch and coffee. The route was in many places difficult to walk, because it was seriously stony. Finally the fog disappeared and we could see magnificent scenery around us. There were many roaming reindeers near to the visitor center. We gotta to shoot photos of them.

The length of this hike was only 9 km / 5.6mi and it took from us to walk 3.5 hours. During 6 days according to Anja’s bookkeeping, we walked 50km / 31mi in total. It is not much, but there were so much to see at this Arctic Hill region. This is not the end of our road trip. There will be two more posts presenting our home trip to our home in the south.

En español:

Día 8 (Jueves, 06 de septiembre 2013). Distancia: 65,0 kilometros viaje redondo / 40.7mi. Temperatura: 10.0 º C por la mañana / 50,0 º F y por la noche 14.5 º C / 58.1F. Ruta: Muonio-Pallastunturi-Muonio.

Despertando esta mañana nuestros sentimientos eran un poco melancólica, Porque hoy es nuestro último día en Muonio. Hemos salvado para hoy la caminata más difícil de la conquista de dos colinas del Ártico, al mismo tiempo. Se les llaman Taivaskero y Laukkukero . La altura de Taivaskero es 801,9 metros y la altura de Laukkukero es casi la misma.

Al comenzar nuestra caminata por la mañana, el tiempo era brumoso. Estábamos un poco de miedo si vamos a perdernos durante nuestra caminata. A veces, la niebla desapareció y volvió. Al subir a la cima de Taivaskero la niebla era tan espesa que no podíamos ver sólo las dos marcas de la ruta a la vez. Cuando, finalmente, en la cima había una sorpresa esperándonos. Había un monumento en el que se le dijo que era sólo aquí, donde la llama olímpica para los Juegos Olímpicos de Helsinki, celebrada en 1952, se encendió. Yo no sabía y ni siquiera Anja aunque trabajó muchos años para que el Comité Olímpico Finlandés.

Antes de hacer senderismo a la cima de Laukkukero, comíamos nuestros bocadillosr y café. La ruta era en muchos lugares difícil de caminar, porque era muy pedregosa. Finalmente, la niebla desapareció y pudimos ver el magnífico paisaje que nos rodeaba. Habían muchos renos que estaban deambulando cerca del centro de visitantes. Teníamos que sacar fotos de ellos.

La duración de esta caminata fue a sólo 9 km / 5.6mi y nos tardábamos 3,5 horas de caminar. Durante 6 días según la contabilidad la contabilidad de Anja, caminábamos 50 km / 31mi en total. No es mucho , pero allí había mucho de ver en esta región de la colina del Ártico. Este no es el mensaje final contando de nuestro viaje por carretera. Habrá dos mensajes más presentando nuestro viaje a casa a nuestra casa en el sur.

Jour 8 (Jeudi, 06 Septembre, 2013). Distance: 65,0 km aller-retour / 40.7mi. Température: matin 10,0 º C / 50,0 º F et soir 14,5 º C / 58.1F. Route: Muonio-Pallastunturi-Muonio.

Au réveil ce matin, nos sentiments étaient un peu mélancolique, parce que c’était notre dernier jour à Muonio. Nous avions épargné pour aujourd’hui la randonnée la plus difficile à la conquête de deux collines de l’Arctique dans le même temps. Elles sont appelées Taivaskero et Laukkukero. La hauteur de Laukukero est 801,9 mètres et la hauteur de Laukkukero est environ le même.

Au démarrage de notre randonnée dans la matinée le temps était brumeux. Nous étions un peu peur si nous serions perdus au cours de notre randonné. Parfois, le brouillard disparut et revint. Lors de la montée au sommet de Taivaskero le brouillard était si épais qu’on ne pouvait pas voir les deux marques de parcours à la fois. Quand enfin au sommet il y avait une surprise nous attendant Il y avait un monument dans lequel il a été dit que c’était juste ici, où la flamme olympique pour les Jeux olympiques d’Helsinki tenue en 1952, a été allumée. Je ne savais pas et même pas Anja bien que elle a travaillé de nombreuses années pour le Comité olympique finlandais.

Avant la randonnée au sommet de Laukkukero, nous avons cassé la croûte et le café. La route était dans de nombreux endroits difficele de marcher, parce que c’était sérieux pierreux. Enfin, le brouillard a disparu et nous avions pu voir le magnifique paysage autour de nous. Il y avait beaucoup de rennes vaquant à proximité du centre d’accueil. On devait prendre des photos d’eux.

La longueur de cette randonnée était seulement 9 km / 5.6mie et il nous a fallu 3,5 heures à marcher. Au cours de 6 jours, selon le compte d’Anja , nous avions marché 50 km / 31mi au total. Ce n’est pas beaucoup , mais il y avait tellement de choses à voir à cette région la colline de l’Arctique. Ce n’est pas la fin de notre voyage sur la route. Il y aura deux autres postes plus présentant notre voyage de retour à notre maison dans le sud.

Em Português:

Day8 (quinta-feira setembro 6, 2013). Distância: Ida e volta 65,0 km / 40.7mi. Temperatura: 10.0 º C pela manhã / 50,0 º F e à noite 14,5 º C / 58.1F. Route: Muonio-Pallastunturi-Muonio.

Ao acordar esta manhã os nossos sentimentos eram um pouco saudosas, porque este será o nosso último dia em Muonio. Nós poupávamos para hoje dos caminhadas mais difícil para a conquista das Colinas do Ártico, ao mesmo tempo. Eles são chamados o Taivaskero e o Laukkukero. A altura do Taivaskero é 801,9 metros e a altura do Laukkukero é aproximadamente o mesmo.

Ao iniciar a nossa caminhada nesta manhã, o tempo estava nublado. Estávamos um pouco de medo que perderemos durante a nossa caminhada. Às vezes, a neblina desaparecia e volvia. Ao subir para o topo do Taivaskero a neblina era tão denso que não poderíamos ver as duas marcas de rotas ao mesmo tempo. Quando finalmente no topo, havia uma surpresa esperando por nós. Havia uma monumento em que foi dito que era justo aqui, onde a chama olímpica para os Jogos Olímpicos de Helsínquia, realizada em 1952, foi acesa. Eu não sabia e nem mesmo Anja embora ela trabalhou muitos anos para que o Comitê Olímpico Finlandês.

Antes de caminhar até o topo do Laukkukero, nós comemos a nossa merenda e café. A rota foi, em muitos lugares difíceis de andar, porque era seriamente pedregosa. Por fim, o nevoeiro desaparecia e podíamos ver uma paisagem magnífica que nos rodeia. Havia muitas renas desambulando perto perto do centro do visitante. Nos temíamos que tirar algumas fotos deles.

A duração desta caminhada foi apenas 9 km / 5.6mi de e levou 3,5 horas a andar. Durante as 6 dias de acordo com a contabilidade da Anja, andávamos 50km / 31mi no total. Não é muito, mas havia tantas coisas para ver nesta região Colina Ártico. Este não é o fim da nossa viagem. Haverá mais dois postos apresentando nossa viagem de volta para a nossa casa no sul.

  1. Oh quelle belle récompense pour cette montée qui a due être sure avec toutes ces pierres, que la vue, les rênes et l’emplacement de la flamme olympique. Très belle série.
    J’espère que votre voyage fut agréable malgré la pluie :-)
    Je te souhaite un très bon anniversaire avec une semaine de retard mais mieux vaut tard que jamais ;-)
    Je te souhaite une belle journée (le soleil est de retour ici ;-))
    A bientôt

    • Bonjour Sophie.

      Merci beaucoup. Oui, en effet, il était pluvieux et faisait froid, mais cela nous était égal. J’ai eu ma tablette avec nous et en Finlande et dans d’autres pays, la meteo était à peu près le même que en Paris. Mardi prochain sera chaud ici. Pour ma ville natale, il est prédite jusqu’à 30 degrés Celsius.

      J’ai ajouté à mon vieux poste 5 nouvelles photos. En Finlande, nous avons inventé UFO-maisons et j’ai trouvé une à Paris également. Si vous ne l’avez pas vu, puis visiter Marché aux Puces, vous trouvez le de là.

      Mon ancien poste avec de nouvelles photos:

      I visited a “UFO” / He visitado un “OVNI” / J’ai visité un “‘OVNI”.

      Belle journée!

    • Hello ❤ちえたん.

      Thank You commenting. It seems that time difference is six hours, not so much. They are indeed reindeers. They get on to be in herd. To have enough strength, man must have pauses and to have some snack. I am glad that You loved my photos. In next post after two weeks we are at the Arctic Circle on our home way.

      すばらしい日を過してください。

  3. The reindeer seem pretty relaxed around people – sort of like cattle rather than regular deer. That was a great find at the summit!

  4. That is a stony path indeed. Looks a bit dangerous. Luckily all made it safely. It would be nice if they made a path for you. Beautiful country!

  5. rocky trails can make you slow down and be careful! very nice scenery and the reindeer are great. Nice to see where the flame had been lite for 1952 – the year I was born!

    • Hello Karen.

      Wow, in 1952. We call that year the “Olympic year” here in Finland. I was then eight years old having my first contact with “foreign” people. Can You imagine that June 1st 1952 we were donated 720 000 bottles of Coca Cola, meaning that. it was the first time when we could taste!

      Happy weekend!

  6. I really like your photos of the foggy landscape, but I can see what you mean about the stony trail. Your photos of the reindeer are marvelous. I also like the picture of you at the site of the lighting of the Olympic torch.

  13. Not only a bit stony but boulders instead! Not easy to walk such ways and to manage distances as easy as usually. And the fog! Although there were still more people around it most probably was a bit irritating and perhaps frightening to have such a limited view. Not visibility zero but still. …
    I like the reindeer very much. They seem to have a serene mind and radiate a sense of calm. I enjoyed the new part of your series very much, Matti!

    Best wishes from Hamburg!

    Comment by キース — May 17, 2014 @ 11:59 | Reply

    • Hello キース.

      Thank You making Your comment and questions. My post presents landscapes far in the North, beyond the Arctic Circle and there no more real forests. Trees which we can see on lower landscapes are dwarf and seem like bushes. When climbing higher and higher all trees vanish slowly. The limit is called tree line.

      Reindeers are very kind, shy animals and they are not aggressive. They are not noisy and man has no need to be afraid of them. Reindeers which roam freely have some kind of “leader” is called bellwether. All other reindeers follow the bellwether. When hiking in fells man can easily hear the beautiful and clear sound of the bell.

      So if You someday think to visit these Arctic areas, do it without any fear. Tell to me if You someday decide to do so! You are welcome.

      すばらしい日を過してください。

    • Hi Betunada.

      Thank You Sir commenting and making a question. These arctic fells are not bikers, but there exist indeed in Lapland. Lengths of these trails in the North vary between 93 kilometers / 58 miles to 26 kilometers / 16 miles. Of Course in Southern parts there are great variety of biking trails. I give here two links just for ideas:

      Rukatunturi’s’s official site:

      Mountain biking on Ruka

      Here is my old post from the same area from 2010:

      Arctic hill of Ruka
