Lake Kaitalampi / Lago de Kaitalampi / Lac de Kaitalampi

In English:

This long, sinuous lake is quite near to Helsinki. Only 30 minutes by bus and then one can walk, to fish using fishing rod, to swim and to drink and to eat in grill sheds one’s supply. My wife loves Nordic walking and that is why she is using walking poles. On both sides of this lake are nice cliffs.

En español:

Este largo y sinuoso lago se halla muy cerca de Helsinki. A sólo 30 minutos en autobús y luego uno puede caminar, pescar con la caña de pescar, nadar y beber y comer su útil en la parrilla cubierta. Mi esposa le encanta la caminata nórdica y eso es por eso que ella está usando bastones. A ambos lados de este lago hay bonitas rocas.

En francais:

Cette longue et sinueuse lac est tout près de Helsinki. A seulement 30 minutes en bus, puis on peut se promener, pêcher avec une canne à pêche, nager et boire et manger ses provisions dans quelques barbecue couverts. Ma femme adore la marche nordique, et c’est pourquoi elle utilise des bâtons de marche. Il y a beaux rochers dans deux côtés de ce lac.

  1. Bonjour Matti,
    De belles images printanières qui donnent des envies de balades.
    Le goéland semble lui aussi apprécier le paysage !
    Bon week-end.

  3. A very beautiful place.Do the paths let you walk right around the lake? We have hundreds of lakes, but usually they are surrounded by dense forest and so there are not long walks. We too love walking and so have to find some of the National and Provincial Parks with long trails. Kayaking is good as we can get to places that we can’t get to on foot.

    • Hello Jackiqueen.

      In this case yes, there is the path around the lake. When in question it is huge lake it is not so, but might be. We have many parks where one can hike long trips or shorter ones. In more to the North than this lake, I have hiked in three day a “circuit of bear” = its name translated from Finnish. It is 80 kilometers long. But it was when I was young. People who like Kayaking of course do it also on lakes, but in many cases on rivers which connect lake to another.

      Thank You commenting. Happy weekend!

    • Hello Kateri.

      You are so right. It was very nice day and quite calm, which can be seen in the photo number 20 or in number 19 when seeing reflections of trees in water. Thank You taking a walking tour “with me”.

  5. Good evening, Matti
    the view of the lake is beautiful, and everything around the lake. There, everyone can recover from everyday stress and breathe clean air. Nordic walking is a sport that is shown here too. The reflections in the lake, They reflect more than masterly and brilliant, in your pictures. Everything is great and perfectly reproduced. They photographed the gulls flying very perfect, so I had the feeling that they fly into my room. The complete view of your pictures gives me a feeling of freedom and peace in this place. I am very pleased to have seen this page. On the next pages I’m already looking forward. I wish you and Anja all the best for your health and daily ways. Thank you for all your nice comments on my web page. Dear greetings, Christel

    • Good morning Christel.

      Thank You for You visit on my site. It was interesting to read that also in Germany Nordic Walking is known. Here many men are also doing it, but I am not. I have promised to use my sticks when we go to some “mountain”, then they are useful, I think.

      Happy Saturday.

    • Hi Montucky.

      Thank You praising my photos. I have three digital cameras since 2004 and I am presenting photos from time to time which I took with that first digital camera also. These photos I took with my camera which I bough in 2008.

      Regards.

  8. J’ai adoré la Finlande, ses paysages lacustres et sauvages. Nous sommes allés là- haut sur le sentier de la randonnée de l’ours, j’en garde un magnifique souvenir…malgré les moustiques!;-)
    Merci pour ce partage et ta visite. Bon dimanche!
    PS: les goélands sont superbement saisis!

Nous étions trois personnes et nous avons eu une compétition avec des Français pour faire une soupe de myrtilles. Ce étit une competiotion entre cusine française et finlandaise. Il a été plein d’humour et nous avons gagné. Nous avons tous eu tellement divertissant!

      Bonne journée.

  11. Amazing! I’m glad I was able to stop by your blog and check out your photos; these caught my eye – they’re very serene and captures nature at its best! What a beautiful camera and skills to be able to take those photos of the seagulls.. actually many of these lakescapes remind me of the scenes I paint in watercolor because of the awesome reflections of the trees in the water. ^_^ I look forward to seeing more of your photography!

  13. Fantástico su blog! Finlandia es un país maravilloso!
    Muchas gracias por visitar nuestro Faro, donde admiramos mucho a su país. Ya hemos escrito en nuestro blog de Aland y del gran compositor Sibelius.
    Greetings from Chile.

    • Hola Luis.

      Muchas gracias por Vuestra visita y por el comentario tan amable. Chile es un país muy bonito y lindo donde visité año 2004 con mi nieta saludando a mi hija que trabajé allí tres meses en Santiago.

      Un saludo cordial.

  14. Hi Matti,

    These photos are amazing! I have never like those birds but you photographed them so well – they look beautiful!🙂

    • Emily, I agree You, because in Helsinki on marketplace (right in harbour) they are “stealing” from people everything one is eating. There are so many children who has lost their ice cream for example. This individual which flew very near to me was defending its nearby nest on a small island (photo 11).
