An adventure in Lapland, the finale

Yestreday I promised I would finish up this Lapland series, so here goes! First off, I couldn’t resist starting with the above picture. It is probably my favorite from the entire trip. It is taken about 11.20 p.m on top of Noitatunturi (lit. witch fell). What an amazing view!

The next stop in our hike was Karhunjuomalampi (lit. Bear’s drinking pond), where we filled our water bottles and ate some camping food. There was a lovely, rather modern lean-to, which we gladly utilized.

After that we started to walk to the top of Noitatunturi (lit. witch feel). The way was easy at first: just a slight incline and a good path. But as we got further to the top, it got steeper and the clear trail started to fade. The views were amazing though.

When we finally made it to the top, it was nearly midnight, and we were all incredibly tired. The view was surreal though. You wouldn’t have guessed it was so late, because the sun was up.

So after we got to the top, we set up our tent and tried to get to morning. The night was rather cold and windy, and it’s fair to say the mood didn’t exactly match the hight of our location. Thus, we quickly packed up our stuff and started to head down. The return route was on the opposite side from the one we had come, but the landscape was pretty similar.

After we got down, we arrived to Oravalampi (lit. Squirrelpond), where we again filled our water bottles and had something to eat in a lean-to.

Soon the trail changed into an easy-to-walk boardwalk again, and soon we emerged from to woods back to civilization.

What a hike, and what a post! Hope you enjoyed C:
