Aavasaksa hill /Colina de Aavasaksa / Colline de Aavasaksa

In English:

Aavasaksa hill

Aavasaksa is the most Southern place where one can admire Midnight sun. When driving to the North this is a place to make a stop for a while. From the top of the hill there is nice view over the river Tornio towards Sweden.

What to see:

1. There a scenic trail, not so long, but anyway.
2. Imperial Lodge.
3. Dance pavilion.
4. Viewing tower.
5. Struve Geodetic Arc.

My photos are not high quality, because I took them in 2006 with my first digital camera. Among my photos there are my photos from many plaques, so they give more exact information.

En español:

Colina de Aavasaksa

Aavasaksa es un lugar más meridional donde se puede admirar El sol de medianoche. Al conducir hacia el norte se trata de un lugar donde hacer una parada de recreación. Desde el pico de la colina hay una vista bonita al río Tornio hacia Suecia

Qué hay de ver:

1. Hay un camino escénico, no mucho largo, pero de todos modos.
2. Imperial Lodge.
3. Pabellon de danza.
4. Torre de vista.
5. Arco Geodésico de Struve.

Mis fotos no son de alta calidad, porque me tomó en 2006 con mi primera cámara digital. Con mis fotos hay muchas placas, que dan más exacta información que yo.

En français:

Colline de Aavasaksa

Aavasaksa est l’endroit le plus sud où l’on peut admirer soleil de minuit. Lorsque vous conduisez vers le nord c’est un endroit pour faire un arrêt pendant un certain temps. Du haut de la colline il ya une belle vue sur la rivière Tornio vers la Suède.

Que voir:

1. Un sentier panoramique, pas si long, mais de toute façon.
2. Imperial Lodge.
3. Pabillon de bal en plein air.
4. Un tour de vu.
5. Arc géodésique de Struve.

Mes photos ne sont pas de haute qualité, parce que je les ai pris en 2006 avec mon premier appareil photo numérique. Parmi mes photos il ya photos de plusieurs plaques, de sorte qu’ils donnent des informations plus précises que moi même.

  1. That is a very beautiful place! It is so enjoyable to see scenes from your country! THe lodge is gorgeous! I love the style and all of the small arches above the rails. Those are elegant.

    The large rocks are very interesting to me. They appear to have much the same lichens on them that I see here too.

    • Hello Montucky.

      This place is also easy to reach by car. Not to the top, but anyway. I have been visiting this site maybe three times in my life. It is very popular place to visit during midsummer, because one can enjoy midnight sun and to dance in the open air dance pavilion. Yes and what comes to nature, I have also interest to rocks. These rocks (small ones) are old because they are rocks to be seen after the ice age and that’s why they are so worn out and round.

  2. Quel magnifique paysage sauvage de forêts et lacs ! J’aime ces rocs couverts de lichens et ces arbres “tortueux” ! Une bonne idée, les passerelles en bois pour passer au-dessus des rocs ! Un très joli pavillon en bois aussi. Merci de cette belle excursion dans la nature🙂

    • Salut Isa.

      Je te remercie pour ton commentaire. J’aime aussi passereles, mais j’aime le paysage aussi plus difficile de marcher. Nous aimons faire des randonnée dans la nature et nous revient tout juste du Nord. Eh bien, pas si loin dans le Nord, mais seulement six heures en voiture.

      Bon weekend!

  3. Good morning, Matti,
    All photos are very interesting. The first picture from the top down is the ideal introduction to this page. The rocky landscape and the adhesion of the trees including the lichens on the trunk of the trees look very interesting. It is amazing how nature develops. From top to bottom are the images 8/9/10/11/12/13/14/21/22 my favorites. In images 8 to 14 I liked the beautiful view to the water and the bridge. The architecture and the exterior of the building I did very well in picture 22. I also think that there must be very nice to experience the midnight sun. I would like to witness.
    Your pictures are very informative and I like it again and again to visit your blog. I am grateful that I can participate in your images to your travel. We wish you and Anja, have a nice weekend, health and happiness to your everyday common paths. Thank you for the e-mail and all your nice comments and the stars. It made us very happy. The next e-mail follows in a few days with a surprise.
    Dear greetings Christel and Detlev

    • Hello Christel.

      Thank You. I am so glad that my really old photos which I took with my first digital camera (5.0 megapixels), pleased You. The rocky landscape is indeed interesting and I like those stones which seems to be old, because they are worn out by the tooth of time. Here in the South where I live, there are similar stones which make a small wall showing the place where the ice age stopped them when ice was rolling them in front of it. Then when the climate started to warm again they stay there they were stopped.

      Happy weekend.

  4. What a beautiful, rugged and scenic area! And still appearing so ancient. I’d love to hike there and see the midnight sun, for sure. The Imperial Lodge is lovely architecture and art work details.

    • Hello Anna.

      Thank You. To see midnight for the first time is an experience to be remembered. Many tourists in more North have problems to sleep during night, because it is so full of light. The meaning of day or night is insignificant there. The Imperial Lodge here is very modest, but some day You’ll see one which is still in its splendor.

  5. What a neat place. Some of those trees have a lot of character. The most twisted tree almost looks like a mythical beast.

    • Hello Kateri.

      Those trees are also in my eyes very special looking, I love them. Thank You for Your comment.

  6. It is such a rugged place. I visited there once many many years ago. Lovely.

    • Hello Tammy.

      Thank You. So nice to read that You have visited this place. As You know and have noticed, it is nice place to make a stop when travelling to more North.

  7. Hello Matti,
    Un faible aussi pour ces passerelles, ces arbres tortueux et ce pavillon magnifiquement entretenu.Très belle balade.
    Je ne connaissais pas Pierre Louis Moreau de Maupertuis, philosophe, mathématicien, physicien, astronome et naturaliste… rien que ça !!😛
    Bonne semaine.
    Marion

    • Bonjour Marion.

      Tu ne connait pas Maupertuis, mais ça ne fait rien. Toute la vie est l’apprentissage! Parfois, la vie a des surprises et cette fois de la Finlande.🙂

      Merci beaucoup pour ta commentaire. Bonne semaine á toi aussi.

  8. Merci pour ta visite. C’est avec plaisir que je retrouve les beaux paysages de ton pays. J’ignorais que Maupertuis était venu ici et amusante coïncidence, j’ai visité la semaine dernière l’Observatoire de Paris !
    Amitiés

      Oh-la-laa, tu connaissais Maupertuis! Coïncidences, elles m’arrive tout le temps. Merci beaucoup pour ta commentaire aimable.

    • Merci beaucoup Frammy.

      Vos paroles me plaît beaucoup. Je viens d’essayer de présenter quelque chose de différent que ceux qui sont vus en général ailleurs et donnant ainsi une petite idée de mon pays inconnu.
