Beyond the Arctic Circle 4 / Más allá del Círculo Polar Ártico 4 / Au-delà du Cercle arctique 4

In English:

Bear’s lair stone / Resting -place/ Uruniemi Camping.

This post has also three parts. At first we visit the place called “Bear’s lair stone”. On the way up to the stone we admire huge stones in the woods. Then I show photos from place where we made short stop for a while to rest our legs. The site was near to a lake and we were astonished to see a stone field. Finally my photos from Uruniemi camping site where we spent our night. This place is very basic, but its owners are very cordial and polite. This camping site is very near to the village of Inari and the distance from the Arctic Circle to there is about 316 km / 196 miles to the North of course.

En español:

Piedra de cubil del oso / lugar de reposo / Camping Uruniemi.

Este mensaje tiene también tres partes. En primer lugar visitamos el lugar llamado “piedra de cubil del oso”. En el camino hasta la piedra admiramos enormes piedras en el bosque. A continuación, les muestro fotos de un lugar donde hicimos una parada parada corta para descansar las piernas. El sitio estaba cerca de un lago y quedamos pasmados al al ver un campo de piedra. Finalmente mis fotos les muestran el camping llamaba Uruniemi donde pasamos nuestra noche. Este lugar es muy básico, pero sus dueños son muy cordiales y amables. Este camping está muy cerca de la aldea de Inari y la distancia desde el Círculo Polar Ártico hasta allí es de unos 316 kilometros / 196 millas al norte, por supuesto.

En francais:

Pier taniére de l’ours / repos / camping Uruniemi

Ce poste a également trois parties. Dans un premier temps, nous visitons l’endroit appelé “pier taniére de l’ours”. Sur le chemin jusqu’à la pierre que nous admirons grosses pierres dans les bois. Ensuite, je montre des photos d’un endroit où nous avons fait une court arrêt t pour nous reposer nos jambes. Le site est proche d’un lac et nous avons été étonnés de voir un champ de pierres. Enfin mes photos montrent á Vous le site de camping Uruniemi où nous avons passé notre nuit. Cet endroit est très basique, mais ses propriétaires sont très chaleureux et courtois. Ce camping est très près du village d’Inari et la distance du cercle polaire arctique est environ 316 km / 196 miles vers le Nord, bien entendu.

Beyond the Arctic Circle 2 / Más allá del Círculo Polar Ártico 2 / Au-delà du Cercle arctique 2

In English:

Carved animals and our log house

From the Arctic Circle our holiday on our blue car started concretely. Before finding bed for next night, we found plenty of carved animals in two places. Our first stop was in Kitinen were I found few friendly looking carved bears. There are nine photos. Our next stop was in Porttipahta and more carved animals with 29 photos.

Rest of photos are showing log houses. First four photos different log houses and the rest from that in which we stayed our night. The place is called Kiilopää. Total mileage 250 km / 155 miles from Arctic Circle. There are inside photos including also four Sauna photos. The log house in which we stayed overnight is called Kelo log house. Kelo is a Finnish term for old, arctic pine trees or naturally circular trunks which are dead on site on upright position in Lapland. Houses made from Kelo logs are expensive, but they are the best ones. Later in my series You’ll see plenty of Kelo log houses, so remember the name, please.

We made also a stop in the small town called Sodankylä, but photos from there I’ll present in next post.

En español:

Animales tallados y nuestra casa en Madera

Desde el Círculo Polar Ártico comenzó en concreto nuestras vacaciones en nuestro carrito azul. Antes de buscar la cama para la noche siguiente, encontramos un montón de animales tallados en dos lugares. Nuestra primera parada fue en Kitinen donde encontramos algunos amistosos osos tallados. Hay nueve fotos. Nuestra siguiente parada fue en Porttipahta con más animales tallados incluindo 29 fotos.

El resto de las fotos le muestran las casas hechas de árboles muertos en pie. Primeras cuatro fotos diferentes casas de madera y el resto de aquel donde alojamos nuestra noche. El lugar se llama Kiilopää. El kilometraje total fue 250 km / 155 millas del Círculo Polar Ártico. Hay fotos del interior como también cuatro fotos de Sauna. La casa de madera en el que nos hospedamos una noche que se llama Kelo Casa de troncos. Kelo es un término finlandés, de edad, los árboles de pino ártico o troncos de forma natural y circular que han muerto en el sitio en la posición vertical de Laponia. Casas hechas de troncos de Kelo son caros, pero son los mejores. Más tarde, en mi serie Ustedes véra un montón de casas de madera hechas de Kelo, por favor, recuerde el nombre de Kelo.

Hicimos una parada también en un pequeño pueblo llamado Sodankylä, pero las fotos de allí voy a presentar en el próximo post.

En francais:

Animaux sculptés et notre maison en bois rond

Du cercle polaire arctique nos vacances a commencé concrètement dans notre voiture bleue. Avant de trouver un lit pour la nuit suivante, nous avons trouvé beaucoup d’animaux sculptés en deux endroits. Notre premier arrêt était en Kitinen oú j’ai trouvé quelques sympas ours sculptés. Il y a neuf photos. Notre prochain arrêt était au Porttipahta avec plus sculptés des animaux avec 29 photos.

Le reste de photos montrent á Vous des maisons en bois rond. D’abord quatre maisons en bois rondes différentes et le reste de celui dans laquelle nous avons passé notre nuit. L’endroit est appelé Kiilopää. Kilométrage total 250 km / 155 miles de Cercle arctique. Il y a des photos d l’intérieur incluant également quatre photos de sauna. La maison en bois dans laquelle nous avons passé la nuit est appelé Kelo maisons en rondins. Kelo est un terme finnois ce qui signifie les anciens de pins arctiques ou des troncs naturellement circulaires sont morts sur le site sur la position verticale en Laponie. Maisons en rondins de Kelo sont cheres, mais ils sont las meilleurs. Plus tard dans ma série Vous allez voir beaucoup de maisons en rondins de Kelo, donc n’oubliez pas le nom, s’il vous plaît.

Nous avons fait également un arrêt dans une petite ville appelée Sodankylä, mais les photos à partir de là je vais vous présenter dans mon prochain post.
