Travels in Finland and abroad

Hiking day2 / Día de Senderismo2 / Journée de randonnée2 / Dia de Caminhada2

In English:

Hiking day2

Background information.

I know that the title is not the best, but I wanted to point out that during this road trip to the northern parts of Finland, we met reindeers everywhere! The explanation for this is that the area belongs to the northeastern reindeer herding area which is larger than the northwestern area. In 2019, there were 4461 reindeer smashes although due to modern technique to warn about collisions of reindeers. This is so called the reindeer alarm application called in Finnish Porokello. Cons of Porokello (personal opinion): Gives a false feeling of security. Overall ratings of this application are for and against based on the user experiences. Many oncoming cars blinked their headlights to warn about reindeer – it worked great!

General information.

The length of our trip was 2413km / 1499mi. It lasted 10 nights / 11 days. We spent one week in a rented summer cottage by the lake Polojärvi in the north. It was a fully equipped two-storied round log house and its jetty was very cool to sit in it in the afternoon and evenings. Silence was palpable. No sounds of a motorboats or personal watercrafts from the lake disturbed the peace! We visited also Kuusamo, Arctic Circle, Suomussalmi, Kemijärvi (two nights) and one night in Iisalmi on the return trip. On the way we drove 783km / 487mi straight to our destination.

Refutation of that reindeers eat only reindeer lichen. This what I have been taught. In practice we saw that they eat various green plants and their delicacy is fireweed or great willowherb known also rosebay.

Were there a lot of mosquitoes? Not so much! It was amazing because it was claimed in the south! Temperature varied between 15°C / 59°F to 26°C / 79°F. Rainy days: one day partly rain. Some cloudy days yes. General feeling: Successful vacation. Photos taken about 800. Pros: Pure nature, nearby lake, friendly cute reindeers, row boat, gorgeous jetty, peaceful place, own peace, hiking possibilities at 4km / 2.5mi. Cons: car needed, nearest place of shopping at 48km / 30mi.

This post:

We made two short hikes on Kylmäluoma area. Distance between our summer cottage and the hiking area was 4km /2.49mi. Kylmäluoma center offers for example these services: Motorhome parking space, tent sites, Sauna, laundry room, restaurant and gorgeous hiking possibilities. On the first hiking day our route was short. Officially it was only 4km /2.49mi but according to the pedometer more than 5,5km / 3.42mi. Maybe the official length was calculated by using the system => as the crow flies! The length of second hike was 5km / 3.11mi, but according to the pedometer more than 7,5km / 4.66mi.

The route of our second hike passed mainly on a high and narrow ridge. The steep slope on both sides down was an average of a drop of 100 meters / 109 yards. That is nothing, but there was a possibility of stumble over the roots of the trees and the sharp stones which were sticking out of the terrain. Besides of these, I had a pain in the small of my back, which I got it a couple days before these small hikes. Over the worst places, my wife had to help me. Number of photos of this hiking post is 25. Then follows Kemijärvi 8 photos and at finally 9 photos showing Suomussalmi, which we visited from our summer cottage. After spending one week in the summer cottage, we spent two nights in Kemijärvi.

My music corner. I start this corner to present beautiful music around the world. I dedicate this beautiful Japanese song to my faithful Japanese friends:

Sukiyaki (Ue o Muite Arukou)

Why this? The electric guitar in this melody is very similar to that Finnish Electronic music from the 60s. This kind of music is still played in Finland.

En español:

Día de Senderismo2

Información de contexto.

Sé que el título no es el mejor, pero quería señalar que durante este viaje por carretera al norte de Finlandia, ¡nos encontramos con renos en todas partes! La explicación de esto es que el área pertenece al área de pastoreo de renos del noreste, que es más grande que el área del noroeste. En 2019, hubo 4461 choques de renos aunque gracias a la tecnología moderna advertimos a los automovilistas sobre posibles colisiones de renos. Esto se llama la aplicación de alarma de renos llamada en finlandés Porokello. Contras de Porokello (opinión personal): Da una falsa sensación de seguridad. Las calificaciones generales de esta aplicación están a favor y en contra de las experiencias del usuario. Muchos autos que se acercaban parpadearon para advertir sobre los renos: ¡funcionó muy bien!

Información general.

La longitud de nuestro viaje fue de 2413 km. Duró 10 noches / 11 días. Pasamos una semana en una cabaña de verano alquilada junto al lago Polojärvi en el norte. Fue una casa de troncos redonda de dos pisos totalmente equipada y su embarcadero fue muy agradable para sentarse en la tarde y la noche. El silencio era palpable. ¡Ningún sonido de lanchas motoras o embarcaciones personales por el lago no perturbó la paz! También visitamos Kuusamo, el Círculo Polar Ártico, Suomussalmi, Kemijärvi (dos noches) y una noche en Iisalmi en el viaje de regreso. En el camino condujimos 783km / 487mi directamente a nuestro destino.

La refutación de que los renos comen solo líquenes de reno. Esto es lo que me han enseñado. En la práctica, vimos que comen varias plantas verdes y su delicadeza es el epilobio o la adelfilla.

¿Habían muchos mosquitos? No mucho! ¡Fue increíble porque fue reclamado en el sur! La temperatura varió entre 15 ° C / 59 ° F a 26 ° C / 79 ° F. Días lluviosos: un día parcialmente lluvioso. Algunos días nublados sí. Sentimiento general: vacaciones exitosas. Fotos sacadas alrededor de 800. Pros: Naturaleza pura, lago cercano, simpáticos renos, bote de remos, embarcadero hermoso, lugar tranquilo, paz propia, posibilidades de senderismo a 4 km / 2.5 mi.Contras: se necesita coche, el lugar de compras (centro comercial) más cercano a 48 km.

Hicimos dos caminatas cortas en el área de Kylmäluoma. La distancia entre nuestra casa de verano y la zona de senderismo era de 4 km / 2,49 millas. El centro de Kylmäluoma ofrece, por ejemplo, estos servicios: aparcamiento para autocaravanas, tiendas de campaña, sauna, lavandería, restaurante y magníficas posibilidades de senderismo. El primer día de caminata nuestra ruta fue muy corta. Oficialmente fue sólo 4 km / 2,49 mi, pero según el podómetro más de 5,5 km / 3,42 mi. ¡Quizás la longitud oficial se calculó usando el sistema => en línea recta! La longitud de la segunda caminata fue de 5 km / 3,11 millas, pero según el podómetro más de 7,5 km / 4,66 millas.

La ruta de nuestra segunda caminata pasó principalmente por una cresta alta y estrecha. La pendiente pronunciada en ambos lados hacia abajo fue un promedio de una caída de 100 metros / 109 yardas. Eso no es nada, pero existía la posibilidad de tropezar con las raíces de los árboles y las piedras afiladas que sobresalían del terreno. Además de estos, tenía un dolor en la parte baja de mi espalda, que lo tuve un par de días antes de estas pequeñas caminatas. En los peores lugares, mi esposa tuvo que ayudarme. El número de fotos de este puesto de senderismo es 25. Luego siguen con 8 fotos de Kemijärvi y finalmente 9 fotos que muestran Suomussalmi, que visitamos desde nuestra cabaña de verano. Después de pasar una semana en la cabaña de verano, pasamos dos noches en Kemijärvi.

Journée de randonnée2

Informations d’arrière-plan

Je sais que le titre n’est pas le meilleur, mais je tenais à préciser que lors de ce road trip dans le nord de la Finlande, on a croisé des rennes partout! L’explication en est que la zone appartient à la zone d’élevage de rennes du nord-est qui est plus grande que la zone nord-ouest. En 2019, il y a eu 4461 collisions de rennes,bien que grâce à une technique moderne prévenir les automobilistes sur collisions possible de rennes. C’est ce qu’on appelle l’application d’alarme de rennes appelée en finnois Porokello. Inconvénients de Porokello (mon opinion personnelle): Donne un faux sentiment de sécurité. Les estimation globale de cette application sont pour et contre basées sur les expériences de l’utilisateurs. De nombreuses voitures venant en sens inverse ont clignoté leurs phares mettent en garde contre les rennes – cela a très bien fonctionné!

Informations générales.

La longueur de notre voyage était de 2413 km / 1499mi. Cela a duré 10 nuits / 11 jours. Nous avons passé une semaine dans un chalet d’été loué au bord du lac Polojärvi dans le nord. C’était une maison en rondins à deux étages entièrement équipée et sa jetée était fantastique pour s’y asseoir l’après-midi et le soir. Le silence était palpable. Aucun bruit de bateaux à moteur ou de motomarines du lac n’a dérangé pas la paix! Nous avons également visité Kuusamo, le cercle polaire arctique, Suomussalmi, Kemijärvi (deux nuits) et une nuit à Iisalmi au retour. Sur le chemin, nous avons conduit 783 km / 487 mi directement jusqu’à notre destination.

La réfutation du fait que les rennes ne mangent que du lichen de renne.C’est ce que j’ai appris. Dans la pratique, nous avons vu qu’ils mangent diverses plantes vertes et que leur délicatesse est antoinette, épilobe en épi, épilobe à feuilles étroites, laurier de Saint-Antoine ou épilobe.

Y avait-il beaucoup de moustiques? Pas tellement! C’était incroyable car c’était affirmé dans le sud! La température variait entre 15 ° C / 59 ° F et 26 ° C / 79 ° F. Jours pluvieux: un jour partiellement pluvieux. Quelques jours nuageux oui. Sentiment général: vacances réussies. Photos prises environ 800. Avantages: nature pure, lac à proximité, rennes sympathiques et mignons, bateau à rames, magnifique jetée, endroit paisible, calme, possibilités de randonnée à 4 km. Inconvénients: voiture nécessaire, magasin le plus proche à 48 km / 30mi.

Ce message:

Nous avons fait deux courtes randonnées dans la région de Kylmäluoma. La distance entre notre chalet d’été et la zone de randonnée était de 4 km. Le centre de Kylmäluoma offre par exemple ces services: parking pour camping-cars, emplacements pour tentes, sauna, buanderie, restaurant et de superbes possibilités de randonnée. Le premier jour de randonnée, notre itinéraire était court. Officiellement, il ne faisait que 4 km / 2,49 mi, mais selon le podomètre, plus de 5,5 km / 3,42 mi. Peut-être que la longueur officielle a été calculée en utilisant le système => à vol d’oiseau! La longueur de la deuxième randonnée était de 5 km / 3,11 mi, mais selon le podomètre, plus de 7,5 km / 4,66 mi.

Le parcours de notre deuxième randonnée passait principalement sur une crête haute et étroite. La forte pente des deux côtés était en moyenne une chute de 100 mètres / 109 verges. Ce n’est rien, mais il y avait une possibilité de trébucher sur les racines des arbres et les pierres pointues qui dépassaient du terrain. En plus de cela, j’avais une douleur dans le bas du dos, ce que j’ai eu déjà quelques jours avant ces petites randonnées. Dans les pires endroits, ma femme a dû m’aider. Le nombre de photos de ce poste de randonnée est de 25. Puis suit Kemijärvi 8 photos et enfin 9 photos montrant Suomussalmi, que nous avons visité depuis notre chalet d’été. Après avoir passé une semaine dans le chalet d’été, nous avons passé deux nuits à Kemijärvi.

Informações básicas.

Eu sei que o título não é o melhor, mas eu queria apontar que durante essa viagem às partes do norte da Finlândia, encontramos renas em toda parte! A explicação por isso é que a área pertence à área de pastagem de renas do nordeste, que é maior que a área do noroeste. Em 2019, houve 4461 acidentes com renas, embora devido à técnica moderna para avisar sobre renas. Isto se chama a aplicação de alarme de renas chamado Porokello em finlandês. Contras de Porokello (opinião pessoal): Dá uma falsa sensação de segurança. As classificações gerais deste aplicativo são a favor e contra com base nas experiências do usuário. Muitos carros que se aproximavam nos piscaram de luzes da frente, para avisar sobre as renas – funcionou muito bem!

Informação geral.

A duração da nossa viagem foi de 2413 km / 1499mi. Durou 10 noites / 11 dias. Passamos uma semana em uma cabana de verão alugada no lago Polojärvi, no norte. Era uma casa de madeira redonda de dois andares, totalmente equipada, e o seu cais era muito legal para ficar sentado à tarde e à noite. O silêncio era palpávell. Nenhum som de barcos a motor ou veículos aquáticos pessoais do lago perturbou a paz! Também visitamos em Kuusamo, no Círculo Ártico, em Suomussalmi, em Kemijärvi (duas noites) e uma noite em Iisalmi na volta. Na viagem de ida, dirigimos 783 km / 487mi direto para o nosso destino.

A refutação de que as renas comem apenas líquen. Isto é o que me ensinaram. Na prática, vimos que eles comem várias plantas verdes e a sua iguaria é Epilobium angustifolium.

Havia muitos mosquitos lá? Não muito! Foi incrível porque foi alegado no sul! A temperatura variou entre 15 ° C / 59 ° F e 26 ° C / 79 ° F. Os dias chuvosos: um dia parcialmente chuvoso. Alguns dias chuvosos sim. Sensação geral: férias de sucesso. Fotos tiradas aproximadamente 800. Prós: A natureza pura, um lago nas proximidades, as renas fofas e amigáveis, um barco a remo, um cais lindo, local tranquilo, paz própria, possibilidades de caminhadas a 4km.Contras: um carro ou taxi é necessário, o centro comercial mais próximo a 48km / 30mi.

Esta postagem:

Fizemos duas caminhadas curtas na área de Kylmäluoma. A distância entre nossa casa de verão e a área de caminhada era de 4 km / 2,49 mi. O centro de Kylmäluoma oferece, por exemplo, estes serviços: estacionamento para autocaravana, locais para tendas, sauna, lavandaria, restaurante e fantásticas possibilidades de caminhadas. No primeiro dia de caminhada, nosso percurso foi curto. Oficialmente, eram apenas 4km / 2,49mi, mas de acordo com o pedômetro mais de 5,5km / 3,42mi. Talvez o comprimento oficial tenha sido calculado usando o sistema => em linha reta! O comprimento da segunda caminhada foi de 5km / 3,11 millas, mas de acordo com o pedômetro mais de 7,5km / 4,66 millas.

A rota de nossa segunda caminhada passou principalmente por uma crista alta e estreita.A inclinação acentuada de ambos os lados foi em média uma falésia de 100 metros / 109 jardas. Isso não é nada, mas houve a possibilidade de tropeçamos nas raízes das árvores e nas pedras pontiagudas que ficam fora do terreno. Além disso, eu tinha uma dor nas costas, que peguei alguns dias antes dessas pequenas caminhadas. Nos piores lugares, minha esposa teve que me ajudar. O número de fotos deste post de caminhada é 25. Em seguida, segue Kemijärvi 8 fotos e, finalmente, 9 fotos mostrando Suomussalmi, que visitamos de nossa casa de verão. Depois de passar uma semana na casa de campo de verão, passamos duas noites em Kemijärvi.

  1. Many of your beautiful photos remind me of the area we live in here in Canada. It seems that Finland and Canada other than its size have a lot of things in common.

    Encore une très belle balade. Pas de rennes par chez moi 🙂 mais des chevreuils. Nous en avons hélas percuté un il y a une vingtaine d’années, surgi de la forêt. Je ne sais pas si les petits systèmes à ultrasons sont efficaces.

      Thank you noticing this extremely beautiful song! I have also the one with English lyrics, but seems until now that no one noticed this song and thus pointed no interest.

  24. Sounds like it was a beautiful hike! Really funny that there’s a reindeer app to look out for the four-legged animals! 😀

  28. I really enjoyed these pictures Matti and the commentary too of course. I liked the idea of those reindeer being cute and friendly, as you showed me in the prior post when they came up to the window and peeked in at the cabin porch. I can see how you would have taken 800 photos just because there is so much to see – not just hiking in the wooded areas, but along the water and the marshy area as well. I always like the colorful houses that I saw in Europe and here was no exception, the yellow-toned houses especially. I like the boat made into a flower garden – very unusual but unique as well. It sounds like the only con of having to drive 30 miles into town was okay and not a huge annoyance – next time you’ll take more food supplies perhaps – I hope there is a next time to stay here in the cards for you? And I liked the music – this time the song WAS an electric guitar – remember I said the last time it sounded like an electric guitar. I have heard “Sukiyaki” before but I don’t know where but recognized the melody. I did like this version though. Have a good Friday Matti.

    • Hello Linda.

      Thank you. The color of wooden houses varies depending the area and the period when built. Little red wooden houses are quite typical. Boats with flower is not rare. This due to that row boats are vanishing slowly and people has invented to decorate them with flowers and even with art. Nice idea anyway. I am glad that you loved the music of my music corner. Because my visitors come round the world, I try to seek instrumental music. Sometimes music beats lyrics and then the song in foreign language is gorgeous.

      When my wife and I were in school, we listened to the Beatles and French music. My wife has told she wrote down lyrics of the Beatles and thus learnt more English. I listened to French music. Next time my music is from my youth, some kind instrumental music of Boulevard of Memories.

      Have a wonderful day!

      • I remember on the Scandinavian trip when we visited Sweden that many of the houses were shades of yellow and/or a light red. They looked quaint in the countryside. I took a photo and won an award from Maupintour of a Swedish house in the countryside. -Linda

          • Thank you Matti. In this post below, I took a photo of the picture that won the award and prize … I thought it was a red house, but it was not but I called it “Tranquility” as it was very peaceful there. I had an Honorable Mention prize too and it was not taken by me, but another passenger on my trip on the ship going from Finland to Russia. I was cleaning out the basement several years ago and my treasures were in a big Rubbermaid tote. You have to scroll down a little bit to see the photos as I have the gift of gab and wrote a lot before the photos:

    • Hello Keith.

      You left so many kind words on my post. You comment concerning my little blue car warmed my heart. It is small outside, but big inside. Think its trunk’s size is 538 liters! Many bigger cars have smaller trunk. It is speeding from zero to 100km/ in 6.3 seconds. It is also 4-wheel drive with automatic 8 gears. I am also glad that you loved that Rhino art. ありがとうございます.

      良い 週末!

  30. With the roots and rocks on your hike, I think I would be looking down as much as looking out at the view. It certainly is a remote but beautiful area of your country.

  31. Dude this sounds like an epic hike and you’re on Day 2! The photos look great! They remind me a little of Big Bear here in Cali 🙂 super glad there were no mosquitos with you. They attack me constantly and have to use repellent any time we decide to hit any area with trees :)these pics rock 🙂 I’m loving the clouds in these pics, plus the reflection of trees in the lake and that boat with flowers! THANKS for sharing them. It’s always nice to see places when we’re on Corona lock down. Plus you post in multiple languages?! Nice! Muy nice!
