North of Arctic Circle 13 / Al norte del Círculo polar ártico 13 / Au nord du Cercle Arctique 13 / Ao norte do Círculo Polar Ártico 13

In English:

Day 10 (Sunday, September 08, 2013). Distance: 722km / 448.6mi. Temperature: morning 4.0ºC / 39.2ºF and evening 19.5ºC / 67.1F. Route: Arctic Circle at Rovaniemi, Kukkolankoski, Oulu, Iisalmi, Mikkeli.

There was some nostalgic in the air when we left Arctic Circle in the morning. This post ends our road trip and I am sure that You have got some new info about Lapland and a small idea how it is looking like thru my 565 photos. Before arriving home we visited the Rapids of Kukkolankoski which is the part of Torne river having the length of 510 km / 324 mi. Kukkolankoski is is the longest freely flowing rapids in Finland and in Northern Europe. Its length is 3 500 meters / 3828 yards and fall height is 13.8 meters / 45.2 feet.

Kukkolankoski runs between Finland and Sweden. This means when looking at my photos that You are seeing Sweden on the opposite side of rapids There were some fishermen using hoop net with long arm. The best time to visit Kukkolankoski is spring time when it foams full of water coming from the North. Now it was autumn, but You can imagine very well how it is in the Spring. The way back to our home passed safely and lasted 9.5 hours with two stops.

Some statistics: Total number of photos 1423 photos of which 565 presented in thirteen posts. Anja shot videos and after photos You can make the whole road trip thru her video in nine minutes and four seconds. To see it at best way, click first settings, select 1080p ( on the bottom right side, third to the left) and after then click full screen. I am “acting” in it in few scenes meaning that now You have possibility to meet me seventy years old gentleman “in person”.

Total coasts 874 Euros including food, drinks, fuel and accommodations. The length of road tour was 2619km / 1627mi. The amount of real hiking only about 50km / 31mi. The last photo shows our car costs in Excel worksheet format. In it I calculated fuel consumptions from full tank to full tank starting from the mileage reading 4743, ending to 7533. This means covering the range 2790km / 1734mi. I started to make this kind of reports already in 1973 when driving my first car. First I used notebook and later I transferred since 1995 all the figures to Excel worksheets. My home version includes costs also. Enjoy my report.

Había un poco de nostalgia en el aire cuando salimos del Círculo Polar Ártico en la mañana. Este post termina nuestro viaje por carretera y estoy seguro de que usted tiene alguna nueva información sobre Laponia y una pequeña idea de lo que parece a través de mis 565 fotos.

Kukkolankoski es es el más largo de los rápidos que fluyen libremente en Finlandia y en el norte de Europa. Su longitud es de 3 500 metros / 3.828 yardas y caída de altura es de 13,8 metros / 45,2 pies.

Kukkolankoski afluir entre Finlandia y Suecia. Esto significa que cuando se mira en mis fotos que usted está viendo a Suecia en el lado opuesto de rápidos. Hubo algunos pescadores que utilizan la red aro con brazo largo. La mejor época para visitar Kukkolankoski es la primavera cuando espuma lleno de agua que viene del Norte. Ahora era otoño, pero se puede imaginar muy bien como este rio espume en la primavera. El camino de regreso a nuestra casa pasó en paz y duró 9,5 horas con dos paradas.

Kukkolankoski coule entre la Finlande et la Suède. Cela signifie en regardant mes photos que vous voyez le Suède sur le côté opposé de rapides Il y avait des pêcheurs utilisant des verveux avec de longs bras. Le meilleur moment pour visiter Kukkolankoski est le printemps, quand il écume d’eau venant du Nord. Maintenant c’était l’automne, mais vous pouvez l’imaginer très bien comment il est au printemps. Le retour à notre maison faisait en toute sécurité et a duré 9,5 heures avec deux arrêts.

  4. Very informative, happy to visit the place through your photos, thank you! Like the linguistic side of your posts very much as they give an opportunity to learn. And fuel tables inspired me to get on track with my own budget challenge😉

    • Hello lMdm.

      Thank You for Your praising comment. I am glad for Your visit. My motto is: “life is learning”, so I am learning languages yet although being senior citizen. Languages keep my brains in good conditions. I and my wife keep tracks of our family economy and thus car costs are part of it.

      Have a great day!

  8. Thanks for bringing us along on another wondrous trip to the north country. I can’t believe the size of the antlers on the reindeer (around 3′ 15″ in the movie:) and love the broken docks on the river – especially the STOP signs!

      Je suis heureux que vous avez remarqué cette importante statue! Merci d’avoir fait votre commentaire. En ce qui concerne la statue, il présente l’homme qui faisait flottage du bois dans le déluge. En 1800-1920 on a transporté du bois dans les rivières pas sur les routes. C’est l’histoire pure.

      The border between Finland, Sweden and Norway is long. It was nice to read Your rafting experience; it must have been great experience! On Western side of Finland we do not have white water rafting, but in Eastern parts yes. Thank You for Your kind comment.

    Is this river the border between Finland and Sweden?
    What kind of fish can you catch here?
    It looks very rapids. The people catching fish, they have the courage to stand the river side, I thought.
    I felt attractive the houses of red color. I like those color very much.
    Kiitos :-)

    • Hello Misa.

      Yes indeed, it is the border. Finland shares border with Sweden and Norway in the North. There are fishes like: pikes, perches, salmons and graylings. This rapids is part of the Torne river which length is 510 kilometers. The red color is typical color of old wooden houses in Finland They can be found on countryside even near to Helsinki. Thank You for Your kind comment.

    • Hello Hayley.

      Thank You commenting my post and the video. I was sure that photos and video complete each others. Before leaving for retirement in my company, I kept for my company quality reports by making different statistics and analysis. I enjoyed it and it was direct continuation for it what I have made during twenty years in home. Although my wife was professional bookkeeper, I made home bookkeeping program using Excel. With it we can track our income, expenses, budget, daily, monthly, quarterly and annual basis etc.

      Statistics for our cars I started already in 1973 by using notebook. This statistics in this post was a shorter version of it what I use home. Of course I keep other kind of statistics also.

      Have a wonderful day!

  38. I found your blog because you commented on my daughter’s blog about quilting and I wanted to see where you lived. I once had a Swedish friend and she would have recognized the language and interpreted for me, but she is long gone. I live in San Diego so I thoroughly enjoyed your video and pictures of the Lapland visit. I’ve always been fascinated with the far north. I didn’t know caribou came in white! Do they change color for the winter? Or is that just how they vary?
    You do have some wonderful quilts. I don’t quilt, but do sew clothing as well as crafty things and appreciate the talent.
    Thanks for the visit… I will have to come back and visit again!
    I don’t have a blog. but my daughter’s is Sewing For Life.

      Thank You for Your lovely comment. I am very happy when reading that You really loved my Lapland photos and the video. Caribous / reindeers do not change color for winter. Some are white, but very few apparently. Thank You giving Your daughter’s blog site name, so I can visit it and make my comments.
