Beyond the Arctic Circle 4 / Más allá del Círculo Polar Ártico 4 / Au-delà du Cercle arctique 4

In English:

Bear’s lair stone / Resting -place/ Uruniemi Camping.

This post has also three parts. At first we visit the place called “Bear’s lair stone”. On the way up to the stone we admire huge stones in the woods. Then I show photos from place where we made short stop for a while to rest our legs. The site was near to a lake and we were astonished to see a stone field. Finally my photos from Uruniemi camping site where we spent our night. This place is very basic, but its owners are very cordial and polite. This camping site is very near to the village of Inari and the distance from the Arctic Circle to there is about 316 km / 196 miles to the North of course.

En español:

Piedra de cubil del oso / lugar de reposo / Camping Uruniemi.

Este mensaje tiene también tres partes. En primer lugar visitamos el lugar llamado “piedra de cubil del oso”. En el camino hasta la piedra admiramos enormes piedras en el bosque. A continuación, les muestro fotos de un lugar donde hicimos una parada parada corta para descansar las piernas. El sitio estaba cerca de un lago y quedamos pasmados al al ver un campo de piedra. Finalmente mis fotos les muestran el camping llamaba Uruniemi donde pasamos nuestra noche. Este lugar es muy básico, pero sus dueños son muy cordiales y amables. Este camping está muy cerca de la aldea de Inari y la distancia desde el Círculo Polar Ártico hasta allí es de unos 316 kilometros / 196 millas al norte, por supuesto.

En francais:

Pier taniére de l’ours / repos / camping Uruniemi

Ce poste a également trois parties. Dans un premier temps, nous visitons l’endroit appelé “pier taniére de l’ours”. Sur le chemin jusqu’à la pierre que nous admirons grosses pierres dans les bois. Ensuite, je montre des photos d’un endroit où nous avons fait une court arrêt t pour nous reposer nos jambes. Le site est proche d’un lac et nous avons été étonnés de voir un champ de pierres. Enfin mes photos montrent á Vous le site de camping Uruniemi où nous avons passé notre nuit. Cet endroit est très basique, mais ses propriétaires sont très chaleureux et courtois. Ce camping est très près du village d’Inari et la distance du cercle polaire arctique est environ 316 km / 196 miles vers le Nord, bien entendu.

Beyond the Arctic Circle3 / Más allá del Círculo Polar Ártico3 / Au-delà du Cercle arctique3

In English:

Climbing to the top of Arctic hill of Kiilopää. New and old churches of Sodankylä.

This post has also three parts. First You can climb with us to the top of Arctic hill of Kiilopää thru my photos. Its height is 546 meters / 1791 feet. The oldest fells in Finland are 1.9 billion years old. All are consumed by erosion and a common feature of them is that they are bald from the top of the mountain. This makes them comfortable to climb, because from the top, the view is 360°around without obstacles.

Rest of my photos shows two churches, the new one and the old one in Sodankylä. Sodankylä is only one and half an hour from the Arctic Circle. The new church is from 1859. The old church is from 1689. The old wooden church is not beautiful from inside, but it has age, so let us accept it.

En español:

Trepando a la cima de la colina de Kiilopää Ártico. Iglesias nueva y vieja de Sodankylä.

Este mensaje tiene también tres partes. En primer lugar se puede subir con nosotros a la cima del cerro del Ártico Kiilopää través de mis fotos. Su altura es de 546 metros / pies 1791. Las más antigua de colinas árticos en Finlandia son 1,9 millones de años. Todos son consumidos por la erosión y una característica común de ellos es que son calvos sobre la cima de la montaña. Esto hace que se sientan cómodos para subir, porque a partir de la cima, la vista es de 360°alrededor sin obstáculos.

El resto de mis fotos muestran dos iglesias, la nueva y la antigua en Sodankylä. Sodankylä es sólo a una y media hora desde el Círculo Polar Ártico. La nueva iglesia es de 1859. La antigua iglesia es de 1689. La antigua iglesia de madera no es bella por dentro, pero no tiene edad, así que vamos a aceptarlo.
En francais:

Grimpant au sommet de la colline arctique Kiilopää. Églises nouvelle et ancienne du Sodankylä.

Ce poste a également trois parties. D’abord vous pouvez monter avec nous au sommet de colline arctique Kiilopää travers mes photos. Sa hauteur est de 546 mètres / 1791 pieds. Les plus ancienne collines arctiques en Finlande sont de 1,9 milliards d’années. Tous sont consommés par l’érosion et une caractéristique commune d’eux est qu’elle sont chauves au sommet. Cela les rend confortables à monter, parce au sommet, la vue est à 360° autour sans obstacles.

Le reste de mes photos montrent á Vous deux églises, la nouveau et l’ancienne dans Sodankylä. Sodankylä est seulement une et demi heure du cercle polaire arctique. La nouvelle église est de 1859. L’ancienne église est de 1689. L’ancienne église en bois n’est pas belle de l’intérieur, mais elle a l’âge, alors laissons-nous l’accepter.
