Roosevelt log Cabin / Cabaña de Roosevelt / Cabane de Roosevelt / Cabana de Roosevelt

In English:

Roosevelt log Cabin at the Arctic Circle (66º 33″ 46).

Roosevelt’s log cabin situates indeed at the Arctic Circle (66º 33″ 46). The distance from the town of Rovaniemi is 12.2km / 7.6mi and from Helsinki 818km / 508mi. Rovaniemi is easy to reach from Helsinki by car, train and by air. Those who are in hurry, flying is quickest. I love sleeping in night trains, because they have shower and to wake up in the morning fresh and rested.

Last winter (2016) we made a quick visit to the Arctic Circle to shoot photos from reindeers in snowy nature and just before leaving for home, we found the Log Cabin built for Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 – 1962) who visited there in 1950. Eleanor Roosevelt was the wife of the President Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 – 1945). Her visit to the Arctic Circle was a surprise. The Log Cabin was built in just two weeks for the reception ceremony. My photos show snow, snowman, reindeer sleigh rides and the photo presenting the Roosevelt log Cabin, is the last one.

En español:

Cabaña de troncos de Roosevelt en el Círculo Polar Ártico (66º 33″ 46).

La cabaña de troncos de Roosevelt se sitúa en el Círculo Polar Ártico (66º 33 “46). La distancia desde la ciudad de Rovaniemi es de 12.2km / 7.6mi y desde Helsinki 818km / 508mi. Rovaniemi es fácil de llegar desde Helsinki en coche, tren y avión para los que tienen prisa, el vuelo es más rápido. Me encanta dormir en los trenes nocturnos, porque tienen ducha y para despertar en la mañana fresca y descansada.

El invierno pasado (2016) hicimos una rápida visita al Círculo Polar Ártico para sacar fotos de renos en naturaleza nevada y justo antes de volver a casa, encontrábamos la cabaña de troncos construida para Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 – 1962) que visitó allí en 1950. Eleanor Roosevelt era la esposa del presidente Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 – 1945). Su visita al Círculo Polar Ártico fue una sorpresa. La cabaña de troncos fue construida en dos semanas justo para la ceremonia de recepción. Mis fotos Vos muestran nieve, muñeco de nieve, paseos en trineo de reno y la foto que presenta la cabaña de troncos de Roosevelt, es la última.

En francais:

Cabane en rondins de Rooselvelt au Cercle Polaire Arctique (66º 33″ 46).

La cabane en rondins de Roosevelt se situe décidément dans le Cercle Polaire Arctique (66º 33 “46). La distance de la ville de Rovaniemi est de 12,2km / 7,6mi et d’Helsinki 818km / 508mi. Rovaniemi est facilement accessible depuis Helsinki en voiture, en train et par avion. La distance de la ville de Rovaniemi est de 12,2km / 7,6mi et d’Helsinki 818km / 508mi. Les gens qui sont pressés, le vol est le plus rapide. J’aime dormir dans les trains de nuit, parce qu’ils ont une douche et de me réveiller le matin frais et reposé.

L’hiver dernier (2016), nous avons fait une visite rapide au cercle arctique pour prendre des photos de rennes dans la nature enneigée et juste avant de rentrer à la maison, nous avons trouvé la cabane en rondins construite pour Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 – 1962) qui y est allé en 1950. Eleanor Roosevelt était l’épouse du président Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945). Sa visite au cercle polaire arctique était une surprise. La cabane en rondins a été construite juste dans quinze jours pour la cérémonie de réception. Mes photos vous montrent la neige, le bonhomme de neige, les promenades en traineau de rennes et la photo présentant la cabane en rondins de Roosevelt, est la dernière.

Em português:

A cabana rústica de Roosevelt No Círculo Polar Ártico (66º 33″ 46).

A cabana rústica de Roosevelt fica na verdade no Círculo Polar Ártico (66º 33 “46). A distância da cidade de Rovaniemi é de 12,2km / 7,6mi e de Helsínquia 818km / 508mi. Rovaniemi é fácil de chegar de Helsínquia de carro, de trem e Rovaniemi é fácil de chegar de Helsínquia de carro, comboio e por ar. Aqueles que estão à pressa, voando é mais rápido. Eu adoro dormir em trens noturnos, porque eles têm o chuveiro e para acordar de manhã e sentir fresca e descansada.

No inverno passado (2016) fizemos uma visita rápida ao Círculo Polar Ártico para fotografar fotos de renas em natureza nevada e um pouco antes de partimos para a casa, encontramos a cabana construída para Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 – 1962), que visitou lá em 1950. Eleanor Roosevelt era a esposa do presidente Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 – 1945). A sua visita ao Círculo Ártico foi uma surpresa. A cabana rústica foi construída apenas em duas semanas para a cerimônia de recepção. As minhas fotos mostram neve, o boneco de neve, passeios de trenó de renas e a foto que apresenta a cabana rústica de Roosevelt, é a última.

  9. Such beautiful reindeer photos. We haven’t visited there but have taken two winter ski holidays to Saariselkä which we enjoyed. M.

    • Hello Marion.

      Thank You commenting. It was nice to read that You have spent ski holidays in Finland, In addition to Ruka there more ski centers like Levi, Ylläs, Pyhä, Salla, Iso-Syöte, Suomu, Ukkohalla, Vuokatti, Luosto, Paljaka, Pallas, Olos, Ruskotunturi, Taivalvaara.

      Saariselkä is also in summer or autumn wonderful hiking “paradise”. Maybe Saariselkä in summer is different from that in winter:

      Saariselkä, Finland. Part 1.

      Our favorite hiking place is:

      North of the Arctic Circle 3.

      It is gorgeous Place to make many kind of hikes in many places. Need of car is must. Maybe some summer You decide to make day hikes.

      Have a wonderful day!

    Comment by Yvonne — February 2, 2017 @ 02:56 | Reply

    • Hello Yvonne.

      Thank You. Reply to Your question is: 15103,9 km/ 9385.1 mi. If airplane flies at the air speed of 850 km/h, then the trip takes 17 hours and 46 minutes. If the air speed is 800 km/h, then the flight time is 18 hours and 52 minutes. In practice, the distance varies due to many reasons. The flight time varies also due to tailwinds or headwinds. 🙂

  31. Reindeers are so lovely! I like them so much:) We can see reindeer in my country… Horonobe town, in the northern part of Hokkaido. Snow and pinetrees are also popular in my area. I’m under the impression that your country have things in common with my country so I feel closeness with your country 🙂

    Comment by superkamui — February 3, 2017 @ 13:57 | Reply

    • Hello Watayuki.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. In 2010, 180 reindeers were transported to Hokkaido and three years later Takeshi Ouda fetched 10 reindeers more. Already in 1975, for the first time reindeers have been transported to Japan in 1975, but it was not a success. I am sure that Northern part of Hokkaido has very much common with our Lapland.

      良い 週末!

    • Hello Keith.

      Thank You. The distance is big, but the flight time from Helsinki to Tokyo with Finnair direct flights takes about 09:30 hours and from Tokyo to Helsinki about 10 hours. 🙂

      良い 週末!

      Muito obrigado pelo comentário legal! O fato e que eu falto a práctica, mas cada novo post é a prática pra mim. 🙂 Cada post requer muito trabalho por exemplo, verbos, adjetivos, etc ..! Fico feliz que tenha gostado as minhas fotos.

      Feliz domingo!

    • Hello Dina.

      Thank You praising my photos. You are welcome.

      Lapland is full of gorgeous places for a visit. Here are two easy places to reach by plain or train. In addition to the Arctic Circle nearby by the town Rovaniemi, there is the town called Kemi. Every year it offers for visitors’ unforgettable experience:

      Best Snow Castle photos.

      The town called Oulu, which south of Kemi, is Oulu. Beautiful town with Arctic beach, but in February it offers something, which is unique:

      Reindeer driving competition.

      It will be closed in April, 9th.

      This year it is arranged in February Saturday 18th at 14:30 o’clock.

      Happy and safe travels.

  37. Dear Matti
    your pictures remind me of my staying in Inari in winter for a couple of month which I liked very much. Unfortunately it’s such a long time ago.
    Dina, our beloved Bookfayries and me want to go up North again. Your brilliant pictures made us even more to want this.
    Have an easy week

  39. You always take us to the most interesting places…had no idea that Eleanor Roosevelt went to the Arctic circle. And oh those cute reindeer, it looks like the children had fun going on a sleigh ride.

    • Hello Karen.

      Eleanor Roosevelt’s visit to the Arctic Circle was a surprise for us too. We have been there many times before, but now to find the log cabin, was surprise. Thank You.

      Have a wonderful day!
