Aavasaksa scenery

Once an interpreter and provisions have been obtained Acerbi leaves Tornio for Ylitornio on 17th June. The road from Tornio to Ylitornio is quite good throughout, there is no need for boat transport. The journey is done in a peasant cart and a chaise drawn by one horse.

The riverside views do not greatly impress Acerbi. The road follows the river Tornionjoki all the way. The sun shining all through the night makes the night time travel extremely pleasant. Also the big salmon catch of the fishermen at the rapids Vuennonkoski add to the feelings of pleasure.


When in Ylitornio Acerbi finds accommodation at the hospitable vicarage of vicar Svanberg. The trip to Aavasaksa marks the highlight of the stay in Ylitornio.
