Properties

I followed the main road to Kittilä all day long with two detours on gravel roads away from the road and back again. Very little traffic on the main road, which is rather narrow, so when an occasional lorry passes from behind, it's unpleasant.

Remarks

Today my goal was the town of Kittilä, which I was to reach in two days from Rovaniemi. The morning I spent on my lovely camping spot in the woods at the cataract. After my departure I quite soon have lunch at a church. Unfortunately, there is no water tap. Coffee break at a little water fall at a small tributary near the place it went into Ounasjoki. I got water from the river. Afterwards I cycled for a long time without seeing a single soul. Then i chatted with some boys, who were angling from a bridge in the village of Kaukonen. I easily found the camping site in Kittilä, where I had a barbecue meal after a shopping trip into town. Afterwards I washed my clothes and enjoyed a trip to the sauna.
