Reindeer lichen on Manamansalo island

In this post, I show photos from the island called Manamansalo, which is on the Lake Oulujärvi. Oulujärvi is the fifth largest lake in Finland in the Kainuu region and its area is 928 square kilometres / 358 square miles. The distance from Oulu to the ferry which connect the Manamansalo island and the mainland, is 127km / 79mi. The distance from Helsinki is 584km / 363mi and from the north, Manamansalo is connected to the mainland by the bridge.

The length of the island of Manamansalo is 16,2km / 10mi and the width is 13,8km / 8.6mi. On its coastlines, there are sandy beaches. Manamansalo lives on tourism. My photos presenting Manamansalo are divided into four parts. First part shows the crossing by the Alassalmi ferry. The length of ferry route is 733 meters / 802yd. Second part was our first stop where we made a coffee break. Third part shows reindeer lichen on the both side of the road and our final stop was at the Manamansalo Gate. At the Manamansalo Gate there are possibilities for some accommodations, but the most interesting to see for us was a Laplander’s style cottage (goahti, Sami hut) two photos. The price seemed to be 75€ / day.

Liquen de reno en la isla de Manamansalo

En este post, vos muestro fotos de la isla llamada Manamansalo, que está en el Lago Oulujärvi. Oulujärvi es el quinto lago más grande en Finlandia en la región de Kainuu y su área es 928 kilómetros cuadrados / 358 millas cuadradas. La distancia de Oulu al ferry que conecta la isla de Manamansalo y el continente, es 127km. La distancia desde Helsinki es 584km / 363mi y desde el norte, Manamansalo está conectado al continente por el puente.

La longitud de la isla de Manamansalo es 16,2km / 10mi y la anchura es 13,8km / 8.6mi. En sus costas, hay playas de arena. Manamansalo vive del turismo. Mis fotos presentando Manamansalo están divididos en cuatro partes. La primera parte muestra el cruce por el ferry de Alassalmi. La longitud del trayecto del transbordador es 733 metros / 802yd. La segunda parte fue nuestra primera parada donde hicimos una breve pausa para tomar café y refrescos. La tercera parte muestra líquenes de renos en ambos lados de la carretera y nuestra parada final fue en la Puerta de Manamansalo. En la puerta de Manamansalo habia posibilidades para algunos alojamientos, pero lo más interesante para nosotros fue para ver una cabaña con estilo de los lapones (goahti) dos fotos. El precio parecía ser 75 € / día.

Lichen de rennes sur l’île de Manamansalo

Dans ce poste, je vous montre des photos de l’île appelée Manamansalo, est situé le Lac Oulujärvi. Oulujärvi est le cinquième plus grand lac de Finlande dans la région de Kainuu et sa superficie est de 928 kilomètres carrés / 358 milles carrés. La distance entre Oulu et le traversier, qui relie l’île Manamansalo et le continent, est de 127 km / 79mi. La distance de Helsinki est de 584 km / 363 mi et du nord, Manamansalo est relié au continent par le pont.

La longueur de l’île de Manamansalo est de 16,2km / 10.0 mi et la largeur est de 13,8 km / 8,6 mi. Sur ses côtes, il y a des plages de sable. Manamansalo vit sur le tourisme. Mes photos présentant Manamansalo sont divisées en quatre parties. La première partie montre la traverse par traversier d’Alassalmi. La longueur de la route du ferry est de 733 mètres / 802yd. La deuxième partie a été notre premier arrêt où nous avons fait une pause café avec le casse-croûte. La troisième partie vous montre le lichen de rennes des deux côtés de la route et notre arrêt final était à la porte de Manamansalo. À la porte de Manamansalo, il y a des possibilités pour certains aménagements, mais le plus intéressant à voir pour nous était un chalet de style lapon (deux photos). Le prix semblait être de 75 € par jour.

Em Português:

Líquen de rena na ilha de Manamansalo

Neste post, mostro fotos da ilha chamada Manamansalo, que fica no Lago Oulujärvi. Oulujärvi é o quinto maior lago da Finlândia na região de Kainuu e sua área é de 928 quilômetros quadrados / 358 milhas quadradas. A distância de Oulu para a balsa que liga a ilha de Manamansalo e o continente é de 127 km / 79mi. A distância de Helsínquia é de 584 km / 363mi e do norte, Manamansalo está conectado ao continente pela ponte.

O comprimento da ilha de Manamansalo é 16,2km / 10mi e a largura é 13,8km / 8,6mi. Nas suas costas, existem praias arenosas. Manamansalo vive do turismo. As minhas fotos apresentando Manamansalo estão divididas em quatro partes. A primeira parte mostra o cruzamento pela balsa de Alassalmi. O comprimento da rota da balsa é de 733 metros / 802yd. A segunda parte foi a nossa primeira parada em que fizemos uma pausa para o café com lanche. A terceira parte mostra o líquen de rena em ambos os lados da estrada e nossa parada final foi no portão de Manamansalo. No Manamansalo porta há possibilidades para alguns acomodações, mas o mais interessante para nós foi uma casa de estilo de Lapônia (duas fotos). O preço parecia ser de 75 € por dia.

  2. Never heard of reindeer lichen. Was the purple flower from the lichen? Pretty!

    Comment by sunnydaysinseattle — September 26, 2017 @ 07:04 | Reply

    • Hello sunnydaysinseattle.

      Reindeer lichen exists in Finland generally on northern areas and on some areas in middle of Finland. Purple flower is Heather (Calluna vulgaris). It is general on sandy areas for example by roadsides. White plants are Reindeer lichen. Their appearance is peculiar, I think. Thank You commenting.

      Have a wonderful day!

  3. That looks gorgeous, if it only was a bit warmer… you could have a swim in the beautiful lake. The forest floor looks a little like the in the Black forest in Germany in places . I love this nature! What a wonderful spot.!

    • Hello Ute.

      Because the lake is big and windy weather, swimming would not have been a pleasure. We have made a road trip to Black Forrest and admired its views many years ago. Thank You commenting.

      Have a good day!

    • Hello Marion.

      I guess that Reindeer lichen may exists only on some higher places and in the north. On our Arctic hills it is widely spread, because it is reindeer’s food. Thank You for Your comment.

      Have a great day!

  6. Hello!
    I love the landscape of the Foreland forest. Reindeer Lichen is unusual. I saw it for the first time. Is the reindeer a Reindeer Lichen to eat?

    Comment by wakasahs15th — September 26, 2017 @ 12:32 | Reply

    • Hello Wakasahs15th.

      Yes in the nature, they eat Reindeer Lichen. In winter, reindeers have difficulties to find it under the snow, which covers the ground, but then man helps offering to them dry hay. Reindeers are half the tame, but they are wild animals after all. Reindeer herding is a traditional livelihood of the Arctic nations (Wikipedia). Thank You.

  7. Good evening (^ ^)
    The yellow ferry is fantastic. Do the reindeers’ moss become their food? I was attracted by the beautiful island scenery.

    Comment by saganhama — September 26, 2017 @ 13:37 | Reply

    • Hello Saganhama.

      Reindeers eat Reindeer lichen. It is their food. When in winter, they have to eat dry hay offered by man, because finding it under the thick snow layer, is difficult. Ferry trips are to us a great fun to make and then there must be no hurry. I am very glad that You loved my photos.

    Comment by Deb — September 26, 2017 @ 14:04 | Reply

    • Hello Deb.

      Thank You for Your kind comment. On the island, there are not reindeers. They are slightly north. This area is not reindeer herding area. There are no wild reindeers, because somebody owns them. When driving car there is always a sign, which tell it. Here is the sign:

      Warning from reindeers.

  17. Your passion for what you do always shows through, Sartenada. I was reading your about page and the flight simulator post before I came here because I have never known anything of your background, despite the many times we have visited each other. Can you tell me about the name Sartenada- does it mean something in Finnish, or is it your own name? Excuse my ignorance. 🙂 🙂

    Comment by restlessjo — September 27, 2017 @ 12:55 | Reply

    • Hello Johanna.

      You made interesting question. Well, when I selected my pseudonym Sartenada, my criterions were that were that it must be easy to read in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian and in many other languages. It means all these: As much meat or fish as a frying-pan can hold / Pan-fried / Panful, contents of a frying pan / Panful. I think that the last one is the simplest. When knowing what it means, it is not so glorious name, but I have quite proud about it after using it many years.

      Thank You reading my Flight Simulator page and About-me-page. Yes, I have / had passions to become to a rally driver and pilot. Due to lack of money, my dreams never came thru, but driving fast on German motorways, was the dream came true. My wife took a video from it and this was the only occasion I have tested my car. I tried to give for a visitor what my unknown country offers with the big help of my wife.

      Now when retired many years ago, our life is active. I shoot photos and have passion for languages. My wife has hobby for handicrafts and she is also interested in languages. For example she receive once a week a German magazine from Germany (Freizeit Revue) and solves crosswords from it. Together we love travel and follow about what it happens in the world

      Thank You. Have a wonderful day.

      Yes, there are on many northern areas similarities. In fact, this area is in the middle of Finland north-south direction. Here is one example where is real north in Lapland.

      North of the Arctic Circle 3.

      • One of my goals is to one day go to the Arctic Circle. In fact I’d like to go twice – once for the long summer day and again for the long winter night.

        In fact, now that I think about it, I may need to go 4 times – for the Canadian experience, and then again for the Scandinavian one 😉

        • Hello Joanne.

          That is many trips, but sounds great. If You someday visit our Arctic Circle in winter, then there are two other places, which are must-visit-places. This my favorite happening in Oulu:

          Reindeer race.

          Next February we will visit again. I wish that somebody would love shoot photos from my race some winter.

          This is in Kemi, just north of Oulu:

          World’s Biggest Snow Castle.

          To spend for example a night inside must be awesome. There is inside ice bar chapel and ice / snow art.

          Here are photos from wintry Arctic Circle, which is very near to Rovaniemi:

          Arctic Circle in winter 2013.

          To reach these is quite easy, buses, trains and by air.

      Reindeer Lichen is in our eyes very special vegetation. When we lived about 50 kilometers to the north of Helsinki, there were Reindeer Lichen around our home. This is visible in one of my posts. The area showed where Ice Age stopped. I am glad that You visited my post and left Your kind comment. Thank You.

    • Hello Keith.

      It is 渡し舟, 渡し船, 渡船, いかだ. The Ferry replaces the bridge, when there is no bridge in use.

      I am glad that You loved my photos and left Your kind comment. Thank You.

      幸せな週末!

  25. Sobrevolé Finlandia en un vuelo hacia otro destino.
    Sus inmensos bosques, sus carreteritas entre el agua y sus casitas de madera, me pareció un paisaje tan bonito que me dieron ganas de quedarme allí y disfrutar de aquello, aunque iba a un destino que también me atraía mucho.
    Conozco Helsinki, pero volveré, espero, a visitar más zonas de Finlandia.

    • Hola Luisa.

      Su capacidad para describir mi país me sorprende. Es como un gorjeo de pajaritos por la mañana de verano temprano. Usted ha notado, que sabiendo Helsinki no está sabiendo Finlandia. Muchas gracias.

      ¡Que disfrutes de una estupenda jornada! Matti

      • Hola Matti,
        Que bonito lo que has escrito sobre los pajaritos y yo. Me ha encantado.
        Lo que vi de Finlandia me gustó muchísimo. Desde el aire la perspectiva es fantástica, se aprecian cosas que es imposible desde tierra.
        El avión volaba bajo porque hizo escala en Helsinki, así que era fácil ver los bosques y las casitas en medio, las carreteritas.
        Imagino que Helsinki, a pesar de ser la capital no tiene mucho que ver con el resto de Finlandia. Por eso, tengo pendiente esa atractiva zona.
        Buena semana para ti también.

        Aclaración: Los españoles de la Península hablamos de tú a las personas cercanas (te considero cercano) y usted a las personas de edad o grado de importancia.
        Por eso te tuteo.
        En Canarias se usa más el Usted, supongo que por eso lo haces, pero no es la norma en la Península.
        Feliz semana, Matti.

        • Muchas gracias Luisa. Lo recuerdo.

          Además en algunos países de América la palabra tú es reemplazada por vos. Matti

    • Hello Doda.

      The target of this extempore road trip was to find Reindeer Lichens and we did find. 🙂 This place is not a tourist trap indeed, but it offers something for occasional visitors. Thank You leaving Your kind comment and loving my photos.

      Happy weekend.

  27. What a beautiful post with so many stunning photos. I love the lichen too and they grow in abundance also in Sweden from where I come. Mixed in with the pink heather at times makes it better than any bouquet.
    The high triangular house by the lake is magic. What imagination. Altogether a wonderful presentation.

    • Hello Miriam.

      Thank You for Your praising comment. Very nice. We have made long time ago two road trips to Sweden. One was driving from Stockholm on the coastal road to Haparanda and then to Tornio Finland. The other was driving maybe thru Åre, Östersund, Wilhelmina, Arvidsjaur and Jokkmok then to Finland. I loved this route very much.

      Happy weekend.
