Autumn holiday /Vacaciones de otoño / Vacances d’automne

In English:

In September we passed three days at Vuokatti Sports Institute. This place is situated from Helsinki by car about eight hours to the North. Vuokatti is offering to everybody ideal outdoor vacations with different style of accommodations. We rented a fully equipped holiday rooms for 2. In Finland this includes always Sauna also.

Every day we made hiking on tracks which lasted from 2½ hours to 3½ hours. It was raining only on one night and after it one hiking path was quite slippery, but everything went so well. Now when You look at my photos, they are a set of photos from these three days.

What to see in my photos? I start with a general view from our house. Our rooms are just back my car. Then You see some small lakes, paths, roots of a tree on paths, sporty wild ducks on trails, bridge going between two lakes, old and new rowing boats, lichen which reindeers are eating, ski jumping hills, vacation cottages under construction, outhouse on tracks, old man’s beard hanging on spruces, ants’ nest and finally a couple of photos autumnal fog seen from our terrace.

En español:

En septiembre pasábamos tres días en Instituto de Deportes de Vuokatti. Este lugar se encuentra desde Helsinki en carro cerca de ocho horas hacia al Norte. Vuokatti está ofreciendo a todo el mundo las vacaciones ideales al aire libre con diferentes alojamientos. Alquilamos una habitación de vacaciones totalmente equipado para 2 personas. En Finlandia, esto incluye también siempre Sauna.

Todos los días hemos hecho caminatas en las pistas que duraron de 2 ½ a 3½ horas! Llovía sólo en una noche y después de la lluvia las rutas de senderos eran bastante resbaladizas, pero todo ha pasado muy bien. Ahora, cuando usted mira mis fotos, que son un conjunto de fotos de estos tres días.

¿Qué ver en mis fotos? Para empezar, le mostro nuestra casa. Nuestra habitación es atrás de mi carro. Entonces Usted ve algunos pequeños lagos, senderos, raíces de árboles en los caminos, patos deportivos y salvajes en los senderos, el puente que conecta dos lagos, antiguos y nuevos botes de remo, líquenes que renos están comiendo, dos colinas de salto, casas de vacaciones en construcción, letrina en las pistas, liquen de barbas colgado de abetos, nido de hormigas y, finalmente, un par de fotos de niebla otoñal visto desde nuestra terraza.

En français:

En Septembre, nous avons passé trois jours à l’Institut Sportif de Vuokatti. Cet endroit est situé de Helsinki en voiture à environ huit heures vers le Nord. Vuokatti offer à tout le monde des vacances idéal en plein air avec les différentes types de l’hébergement. Nous avons loué un apartement de vacances pour 2 entièrement équipé. En Finlande, cela signifie toujours aussi que c’est compris la Sauna.

Chaque jour, nous avons fait las randonnées sur des sentiers durant de 2 ½ à 3½ heures. Il pleuvait une fois seulement une nuit et après le chemin de randonnée était très glissant, mais tout allait si bien. Maintenant, quand vous regardez mes photos, elles sont un ensemble de photos de ces trois jours.

Que on va voir dans mes photos. Je commence par une vue de notre maison. Notre chambre est juste derrière ma voiture. Ensuite, vous voyez de petits lacs, des sentiers, des racines d’un arbre sur les chemins, sportif et sauvages canards sur les sentiers, le pont qui va entre de deux lacs, anciens et nouveaux bateaux à rames, lichen qui rennes mangent, tremplins de ski, chalets de vacances en construction, latrines à fosse simple sur les pistes, lichen barbe accroché sur les sapines, un nid de fourmis et enfin quelques photos de brouillard matinal d’automne vu de notre terrasse.

  1. What a wonderful place for an Autumn holiday! The colorful Autumn leaves along the lakes are beautiful, and the walking trails would be very enjoyable! Also it would be interesting to watch the ski jumping in winter! I enjoy seeing so much of your country!

  2. Thank You Montucky.

    I am glad that that You liked these sceneries in my country. I think that to hike, the fall is also great time to do so. I have to confess that I have seen ski jumping in live only once in my life and that happened when I was kid.

  3. Well,another impressive post – with many captures from fall in your lovely country. I enjoyed this post very much!

    Thank You. I am glad that I succeeded to tell my photo story.

  5. Yes, it was interesting to have a tour of Vuokatti – just my type of holiday. I see what you mean about the lichen, just the same as we have here. They are so beautiful. Quite an impressive ant’s nest!

    • Hi Jackie.

      Thank You visiting and commenting my post. Yes, I agree with Your observation concerning the ant’s nest. Happily ants were already sleeping. Lichen is common at this latitude and also nearby my home here in the South. I am living on large ridge and that is why we have in our forests lichen.

      Happy weekend.

  6. Hello Matti,
    De sacrément chouettes vacances !
    Tous ces endroits sont plus beaux les uns que les autres mais la photo 15 avec sa barque bleue est de loin ma préférée… tu connais mon intérêt pour les bateaux !!😀
    Très bon week-end.
    Amicalement

  8. Oh my! These are delightful captures of your Autumn holiday! The lake shots along with the boats are beautiful! And what a path to hike on with those tree roots! Whoa! Is Puusee an outhhouse?🙂 Ah! You mentioned an outhouse on tracks. LOL Love the ducks walking on the pathway. Enjoyed this post and always a delight to see more of Finland.

    • Hello Anna.

      Thank You for Your visit and comments. It was nice to read that You liked to make a “virtual vacation” thru my photos. About Puusee, that is right that it is outhouse. Finnish word “Puu” is in English: wood, tree, timber. Water closet = WC and the word “see” is pronounced in my language as “cee”. We do not say Water closet, but Wood closet and also when thinking that those outhouses are made from wood, so it is quite natural to call them Wood closets in Finnish. LOL. Happy weekend.

    En España, el otoño está más retrasado.

    Luulen, että olemme tavanneet aikaisemminkin mm. Aminus3 , jonka lopetit melko lyhyeen ellen sotke perusteellisesti🙂
    Itse panin pisteen Aminukselle noin viikko sitten.

    My photos from Koli are taken by my husband, my son and his two daughters – they are very good photographers😉
    Thank you for coming by and commenting on my site.
    How did you find it, I have not been very active there.
    nice week to you and your vife ( I recognized her in the pictures )

    • Hello Leena.

      Olet oikeassa. Lopetin sen, kun en jaksanut päivittäin kommentoida. Sitä on tullut kokeiltua vähän sitä sun tätä, mutta nyt tuntuu, että jatkan täällä. Postauksia teen vain kerran viikossa ja nekin yleensä perjantaisin aamulla.

      I found it via london calling where You had some interesting comments concerning our Sauna. So, the world is small.

      I hope to You also nice week.

  15. Good evening Matti,
    The autumn colors and the reflections in the lake are fantastic. I rediscovered some favorite images that I liked particularly well. There are, from top to bottom, the images 9/10/15/16/18. The interesting lichens in the pictures 22/23/39/40 and the large ants nest in Figure 41, I noticed. In our forests, I also discovered ant nests at that size. Some of them are surrounded by nets and protected. Figure 32 is very funny. It is good that such a house in the woods there. The last two pictures, please me very well. The fog comes in the background, excellent expression. All pictures are again very nice and it gives me pleasure to experience this trip. Thank you also for your comments and e-mail. I answer soon. We wish you and Anja, all the best and health to your common, everyday ways. Dear greetings Christel and Detlev

    Comment by Christel — November 2, 2010 @ 22:39 | Reply

    • Hello Christel.

      Thank You commenting here. Your selection of photos is great. I checked every one. The number 32 was intended to be a little bit funny and now I see that You noticed it. Those 22/23/39/40, I also love them, because 22/23, they are seen general here where I live and this just that what reindeers are eating in Lapland. Those 39/40 are very seldom seen here where I live, but when I was a kid I found them in spruce woods. Those last two photos I will add to my yearly photo collection of my car which I publish every year in my YouTube videos. This year I am showing also some photos from my car when I was in Germany. I also will add those photos in which my car is together with Allure of the Seas which is world’s largest cruise ship Seas as its sister vessel of M/S. Oasis of the Seas; both made in Finland. I am sure that there will be many photos from Allure, but who has his own car in the photo with it? I guess that not so many. These photos with Allure of the Seas can be seen on Friday 5th, 2010 in my next post. So the name of my YouTube video might be something like: Vectra OPC in Finland and in Germany.

      Herzliche Grüße!

  17. Des vacances de rêve dans une région magnifique ! Tes photos sont superbes, j’aime beaucoup celles du lac, des barques, des forêts, ça fait envie d’y aller🙂 Sapporro, ce sont les courses de ski, non ? Le parcours à côté du téléski, c’est quoi exactement, stp ? Merci de nous faire partager ces moments dans une nature splendide.

    Comment by isathreadsoflife — November 6, 2010 @ 10:14 | Reply

    • Bonjour Isa.

      Merci pour ton visite et des commentaires. Sapporo ça c’est un route d’aller à pied durant l’été et route de ski pendant l’hiver. Certaines routes sont difficiles et de monter leur photos ça n’est pas si facile. Tu es le premier qui a remarqué ces “les parcours un côte du téléski”, très bien. Ainsi, ils sont routes de karting! J’aime le karting, mais je n’ai pas conduit ici.

      Belle journèe.

    • Hi Kateri.

      That lichen is really special looking. My wife has used them when she made Christmas ornaments. Its color is different and it is giving “airy”look.

      Thank You for Your visit.

  19. I love autumn as a season! I wish we had autumn in my country.😛 But I am in the tropics, so this is impossible!

    I will definitely come back for more!

    • Hello Maria.

      Very good Maria. Mother Nature is the Great Artist and every year it is wonderful to enjoy this happening. Also in the spring it is a wonder to admire when leaves start to grow slowly.

      Thank You leaving Your comment.
