North of Arctic Circle5 / Al norte del Círculo polar ártico 5/ Au nord du Cercle Arctique5 / Ao norte do Círculo Polar Ártico5

Day 4 (Monday, September 02, 2013). Distance: Round trip 181km / 112.47mi. Temperature: morning 8.ºC / 46.4ºF and evening 15.5ºC / 59.9F. Route:Muonio-Ylläs-Pakasaivo-Äijäkoski-Muonio.

Lake Pakasaivo and Äijäkoski rapids

In English:

Pakasaivo Lake known also as the Hell of Lapland, is odd. It is a lake to which there is no incoming stream, but outgoing yes. It is situated in a ruptured valley surrounded by steep and rugged cliff walls. Considering it in this way, man can think that it is huge giant’s kettle. It said also that it gets its water from many springs. The wise men say that it is a Meromictic lake. Edges of cliffs are about 50 meters / 164 feet high and the depth of lake is 60 meters / 197 feet.

Pakasaivo has been worship place of Lapps thru the ages. For a visitors it is nice place for a visit and to enjoy own snacks sitting on cliffs. Pakasaivo is only 54 kilometers / 34 miles to the South from Muonio. The last leg is unpaved road in the wilderness and man must be careful when driving, because reindeers can cross the road suddenly.

When returning to our base in Muonio we made a short visit to Äijäkoski rapids. White water rafting and fishing are commonly practiced on it. Äijäkoski rapids are part of the river Muonionjoki which is 230 kilometers / 143 miles long. Muonionjoki is a tributary of 510 kilometers / 317 miles long of Tornionjoki.

Lago Pakasaivo y Äijäkoski rápidos.

Pakasaivo Lake también conocido como el Infierno de Laponia, es extraño. Se trata de un lago para la cual no hay flujos entrantes, pero salientes que sí. Está situado en un valle rodeado por las paredes rocosas escabrosos y robustos. Pensando de esta manera, se puede pensar que es una caldera gigante. También se dice que obtiene su agua de muchas fuentes. Hombres sabios dicen que es un lago Meromíctico. Los bordes de los acantilados están a unos 50 metros / 164 pies de altura y la profundidad del lago es de 60 metros / 197 pies.

Pakasaivo ha sido un lugar de culto de los lapones a través de las edades. Para los visitantes, es un lugar agradable para visitar y tomar sus propios bocadillos sentando en los acantilados.Pakasaivo está a sólo 54 kilometros / 34 millas al sur de Muonio. El último camino es un carretera sin pavimentar en la tierra salvaje y el hombre debe tener cuidado al conducir, porque los renos pueden cruzar la carretera de repente.

Al regresar a nuestra base en Muonio, hicimos una breve visita a los rápidos de Äijäkoski. Se practican rafting y pesca popularmente en él. Rápidos de Äijäkoski son parte del río Muonio, que es 230 kilometros / 143 millas de largo. Río Muonio es un afluente de 510 Kilómetros / 317 millas de largo del río Tornio.

Jour 4 (Lundi, 02 Septembre 2013). Distance: aller et retour 181 km / 112.47mi. Température: matin 8.ºC / 46.4ºF et le 15.5ºC / 59.9F. Route: Muonio-Ylläs-Pakasaivo-Äijäkosk-Muonio.

Lac Pakasaivo et Rapides de Äijäkoski

Pakasaivo lac connu aussi comme l’ enfer de la Laponie , est bizarre. C’est un lac à laquelle il n’y a pas flux entrant, mais sortants oui . Il est situé dans une vallée entourée par la rupture des parois abruptes et escarpées falaises . Considérant ça de cette manière, on peut penser que c’est une marmite du diable. On dit aussi qu’il puise que son eau est à partir de nombreuses sources . Les sages disent que c’est un Lac méromictique. Bords de falaises sont à environ 50 mètres / 164 pieds de hauteur et la profondeur de lac est de 60 mètres / 197 pieds .

Pakasaivo a été lieu de culte des Lapons à travers les âges. Pour un visiteur , il est un bel endroit pour une visite et pour profiter sa propre casse-croûte assis sur des falaises. Pakasaivo est à seulement 54 km / 34 miles au sud de Muonio. La dernière étape est le chemin découvert dans le désert et on doit être prudent lors de la conduite, car les rennes peuvent traverser la route tout à coup.

Lors du retour à notre base de Muonio nous avons fait une courte visite à Äijäkoski rapides. Rafting et la pêche sont couramment pratiquées sur elle. Rapides Äijäkoski font partie de la rivière Muonionjoki qui est 230 km / 143 milles de long. Muonionjoki est un affluent de 510 km / 317 miles de long de Tornionjoki.

Lago Pakasaivo e Äijäkoski rápidos

O lago de Pakasaivo também conhecido como o Inferno da Lapónia, é estranho. É um lago onde não há o fluxo de entrada, mas de saída sim. Ele está situado em um vale áspero cercado por paredes íngremes e escarpadas falésias. Considerando desta forma, o homem pode pensar que é enorme chaleira gigante. Também é dito que recebe a água a partir de muitas fontes. Os homens sábios dizem que é um lago Meromictic. Arestas de falésias são cerca de 50 metros / 164 pés de altura e a profundidade do lago é de 60 metros / 197 pés.

Pakasaivo tem sido um lugar de adoração de lapões através dos tempos. Por visitantes é um lugar agradável para uma visita e para comer seus próprios lanches sentado em falésias. Pakasaivo é de apenas 54 km / 34 milhas ao sul de Muonio. A última etapa é a estrada não asfaltada no deserto e o homem deve ter cuidado ao dirigir, porque renas pode atravessar a estrada de repente.

Ao retornar para nossa base em Muonio fizemos uma breve visita aos rápidos de Äijäkoski. Rafting e pesca são comumente praticado nele. Rápidos d Äijäkoski fazem parte do rio Muonionjoki que é 230 km / 143 milhas de comprimento. Muonionjoki é o afluente de Tornionjoki do 510 km / 317 km de comprimento.

  7. Hello in Finland, many thanks for your interesting information about this meromictic lake. Frankly speaking, I had to check what it meant and have no understood that we also
    have such a lake (lago di Cadagno) in our region where there is a research center and students from all over the world are active there. I wish you a very good week.:):) Bye Martina

  23. Nous avons un lac méromictique dans la région, selon ce que j’ai appris il semble qu’il y ait peu de ce lac de ce genre dans le monde et qu’il s’agit de très vieux lacs. C’est intéressant puisque les bords du lac ici sont comme ceux sur tes photos hautes falaises escarpée et boisées

    • Hello Tiny.

      Thank You. Before this road trip I have not heard about Pakasaivo. As You know the name can be read in wrong way. To me it was Pakas aivo and I translated it in my mind like Frozen brain.🙂

      Have a nice day!

    • Hi Jane.

      Very nice and interesting comment. I love comparisons with landscapes around the world. In Finland there yet visible some marks from the Ice Age. This is one very interesting mark:

      Giant’s potholes.

      Happy Sunday!

  31. This last picture made me gasp. It reminds me so much of Alaska. I love the image of the rushing water. I felt like I could hear it, and feel the chill from that gray sky. Beautiful!

    • Hello again.

      So it must be indeed. You have to think that these landscapes are situated to the North of the Arctic Circle. Thank You commenting.
