Beyond the Arctic Circle 14 / Más allá del Círculo Polar Ártico 14 / Au-delà du Cercle arctique 14

In English:

Saariselkä, Finland. Part 3.

In afternoon we walked around on local paths and in the near woods. This post ends my Trilogy of showing photos from Saariselkä and all the series of Beyond the Arctic Circle, but our trip continues yet with three posts. Best photos are coming.

En español:

Saariselkä, Finlandia. Parte 3.

Por la tarde nos dimos una vuelta por los caminos locales y en los bosques cercanos. Este mensaje termina mi trilogía de mostrar las fotos de Saariselkä y del Círculo Polar Ártico, pero nuestro viaje continuará todavía. Las mejores fotos están llegando.

En francais:

Saariselkä, Finlande. Partie 3.

Dans l’après-midi nous nous sommes promenés sur les sentiers locaux et dans les bois près. Ce message se termine ma trilogie de montrer des photos de Saariselkä et du Cercle Arctique, mais notre voyage continue encore. Meilleures photos sont à venir.

  1. Hola Matti!
    I love all the reindeer shots, and also the beautiful carved poles, reminiscent of totem poles and perfect for the setting. The tree in image 34 is very unusual in its growing habit, with the branches seeming to reach back down to the earth. Do you know what kind of tree it is? And of course there is much ‘rumbling’ in images 16 to 18!
    Wishing you and your family a very Happy Easter,
    Janice.

    • Halo Janice.

      Thank You for Your comment. The tree in photo number 34 is pine tree. I noticed that its branches grow downward and that’s why I took a photo from it. In our garden we have very similar pine. I keep my trailer below its branches. Its branches prevent / protect the snow from falling on it. Rumbling was awesome when all these motorcyclists started slowly to leave the area. I guess that many of them have had a great time when looking at them.🙂

      Happy Easter to You and Yours!

  2. Bonjour Matti,
    c’est amusant de voir ces animaux à deux pas des parkings !
    J’aime beaucoup ces gravures sur bois.
    Ouf, tu n’as pas abandonné l’Opel : à force de voir tous ces motards, je croyais que la fièvre des “deux-roues” t’avait gagné !
    Bon week-end de Pâques.
    Bises.

      J’aime ton commentaire beaucoup. N’est-il pas un belle et énorme bonhomme de neige? J’essaie toujours de prendre une photo de ma voiture bleu dans ce genre de cas. Aussi c’était très agréable à lire que tu’s aimée ces ces gravures sur bois.

      Joyeuses Pâques! Bises.

      I am very happy that You like my photos. These photos are from the Northern part of Finland and in a way they are “exotic” to me too, because Finland is a very long.

      Happy Easter.

  4. The antelopes are fab! closely close up shots…loved the barren tree images as well, …especially those taken against the sky. the carvings in the wood were quite innovative as well. ONce again a fantastic post

    • Hello Ashkitty.

      How nice that You commented my post and liked my photos. Sorry, those are not antelopes but reindeers / caribous. In Finland we call them Reindeers. Some of them might be “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” from the song which is sung at Christmas time. Barren trees I photographed that they are good examples of logs, Kelo logs. These specimens are not are not the best examples, however.

      Have a lovely Day!

  9. I find it hard to believe that the best pictures are yet to come. Your photos in this entire series have been marvelous. I’m very impressed with the lush green of the woods in your first few pictures. I don’t often think of the land above the Arctic Circle as being so green.

  12. I’m surprised Matti. I thought that part of the world would be more tundra and not nearly so treed. And I didn’t expect to see bikers either! Your reindeers are beautiful.

    Comment by Tammy — April 8, 2012 @ 18:20 | Reply

    • Hi Tammy.

      Yes, it is a green, green world and that I have proved it in my 14 posts. We want to preserve this part of world green in the future. For example in part 5, I presented a cruise on Lake Inari. Cruises are made by the cruiser which has capacity for 120 passengers and it is 16.3 meter / 53.5 feet long, height 5.5 meter / 18 feet and cruising speed 7 knots. Okay, this is nothing, but think about this: it is boosted by two electrical engines each generating 50 KWH. Yes, it is using only 100 KWH for its cruise. My blue car has 206 kW, so make the comparison.

      I have added two short videos to my posts just to get the real feeling visiting there with us. My wife took them and I edited them. She makes good videos, be sure.

      Here is the first when we drive alongside the lush Tana River between Norway and Finland. Length of video is only 1:27.

      That video can be compared with that video when we drove alongside the alongside Varangerfjord, Norway to Kirkenes, Norway. Now there is huge difference, because the landscape is barren. This video lasts only 4:02.

      I am very glad that You took a short tour in Northern parts of Finland.

      Thank You for Your visit and comment.

  14. Matti, please tell me about the etchings on the trees.

    I really like the teepee-like wooden bridge!

    And your videos?!!! WOW!!! Y’all have done a magnificent job!

    Say! Your little blue car sure lives to travel, doesn’t it? How many miles do you have on it? It sure is comfortable and dependable!

    Comment by Deli Lanoux, Ed.D. — April 9, 2012 @ 19:04 | Reply

    • Hello Deli.

      Well, I think that those “pictograms / etchings” are showing what activities and what to find in Urho Kekkonen’s National park. I fell in love with them and that is why I wanted to present them in my post. I am glad that You checked those two videos. When on travel, we have a distinct “work distribution” with Anja. I shoot photos and she shoots videos. There will be one video more in my post which I’ll publish on Friday 20th, 2012. If somebody is interested in my videos, then there is a link under Blogroll. During this winter, I added to there 6 videos from our holiday in Egypt and especially when we made Nile cruise and visited some temples.

      Thank You asking from my little blue car. It loves to travel as we do also! I have driven with it about 56000 miles and it is five years old and I have rust protected twice. What is best, so far, no technical problems!

      It is comfortable indeed with leather seats which are electrically adjusted. Seats are Recaro seats which are made by the same company that makes aircraft seats. My car is equipped with bi-Xenon headlamps and these headlamps are adaptive headlamps which turn in curves. In Finland we need good headlights, because our winter is long and dark. Sometimes man has to be seated on planes for more than 14 hours. We have had never our backs any pain even after sitting hours and hours in them. Then it is fast with acceleration of 6.3 seconds from zero to 96 miles and top speed with 155 miles in an hour. We have spent twice in Germany our vacation driving there. I love to drive there because on many motorways there are no speed limits and to drive fast legally is thus in Germany. My top speed in Germany is 150 miles in an hour. Once we slept in our car on some huge gas station after driving all the evening and night thru the rain. When we awaked in the morning there were people around our car and they smiled to us. It is good to get experiences. Horses it has 280, motor V6 turbo charged, 2.8 liters.

      Now after all this, the big question is why such a car. Answer is simply: It is wonderful to drive fast on German “Autobahnen” and and enjoy “slow driving” in Finnish summer! During winter we use mainly my wife’s car which is Opel also.

      For more information with plenty of photos from Finland and Germany. There are for example plenty of photos from it here and there in Finland, photos from it in front of churches, from my summer place etc.:

      My blue car.

      BTW, Opel is underestimated car brand in Finland, but I personally disagree with its inferioty! In addition to that, Opel / Vauxhall in Europe and in U.S.A. General Motors have made a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. In the States it is called Chevrolet Volt and in Europe it called Opel/Vauxhall Ampera. In Australia it is called Holden Volt.

      This car has several awards: Green Car Vision Award, 2011 Green Car of the Year, 2011 North American Car of the Year, 2011 World Green Car and 2012 European Car of the Year. So, I think that Opel is a good car anyway.

      Thank You asking from our “little blue babe” and making again nice comments.

    • Hi Annie.

      There is a saying in Finland: “Madness of Lapland”. It means that anyone who visits there wants to return there. We have been hiking in the South, but in Lapland the atmosphere is different, pure, and easy to breath. In the air there is something mystic. Photographs cannot capture the ambiance. There is for everybody everything, things to be explored or just to be in own peace far away from the rest of the world. This world feels so different when there. One sighs deeply when feeling of well being and peace of mind creeps slowly into one’s mind.

      Thank You for Your comment.

Les photos de la forêt verdoyantes sont magnifiques. Toutes ces motos… un rallye ou un rassemblement de motards ? Que de contrastes au-delà du Cercle Arctique !

  20. The close-up of the reindeer with those magnificent antlers is gorgeous. The forests remind me of those in Norway – unsurprisingly, I suppose. These are very open.
