    Aavasaksa view

    by Tonttuliina Updated Feb 28, 2013

    Along the E8 road (north of Oulu city): Just 6-10 km North of Ylitornio town is the Aavasaksa sight. From the E8 road, turn right to road 930 "Raanujarventie", and after 2,5-3km turn left to "Aavasaksanvaarantie". Drive up and visit the pavilion cafe "Aavasaksan Paviljonki". Nice views up there!
    Aavasaksa used to be the most famous tourist destination among the Finns a few decades ago, as many Finns from Southern Finland crowded to the Aavasaksa Hill in Midsummer night to see the Aavasaksa landscape in the Midnight Sun. It was an experience to boast about.

    Strange taste...

    by Jasoninlondon Written Feb 9, 2005

    Although this isn't technically off the neaten path, I didn't quite know how to catagorise it.

    This company use a weird product name that doesn't necessarily make their products look all that appertising to foreigners.

    But I had to try it....

    The quiet people - hiljainen kansa

    by sinoda Written Apr 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While driving north on interstate #5 there is an unexpected sight just some kilometres before Kuusamo on you right hand side.

    It sure makes you wonder when reading 500 metres before "it" the sigh saying 'Hiljainen kansa' (the quiet people).

    First you notice a whole bunch of people standing in the field - just standing. Then on 2nd look you just have to laugh... go and see for yourself...

    quiet people; Lapland, Finland

    Exploring the unknown

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ah, still alive I am. Every time I am outdoors - in the wilderness I mean - I am overwhelmed by the purity of nature esp. in Lapland.

    The water (pic) from this natural well was so good so delicious and COLD I could have been lying there all day and have some more...

    Well, Lapland, Finland
