  • In summer, the Taatsin Seita can be found relatively easily. Going to the settlement Pokka whether the way from Levi or Kittila (better) pass on the left bar with a petrol station and more or less after the kilometre we reach the intersection with parking and information board. Here we turn left and holding all the time of the main gravel road after about 10 kilometers we reach the next parking and information board. From here we have only 100 m. Walk through the forest and we are in a magical place. In the Rocky canyon in front of us is Lake Taatsijarvi, around the tundra, and before us protelting from the slope, on our shore a lonely, characteristic rock. It is one of the most famous places in Lapland. In the past, the Saamowie made sacrifices and erected prayers, believed that this was a spiritual place. The victim consisted mainly of the horns of deer and reindeers and fish. On the statue-scales and today we find them. The place is beautiful and really full of magic. Even if we do not believe in the power of the Saamans, the magic of unspoiled nature surrounds us, and the Finnish wastes have something mystical for me. Be sure to follow the path along the lake (with parking behind your back right). After a short walk you will reach the impressive cliff called the church. The name is taken from the fact that the rocks here resemble the church benches (you can sit comfortably), and when singing here or the game is an echo reminiscent of the church. Perhaps. The view in any case is again beautiful. In addition, the noise of the waterfall is heard (the view is another 200-250 m. Walk through the forest). If only you can avoid this extraordinary place. I think that in the summer or colorful autumn it must make a greater impression than in winter.

  • This is a beautiful place year round in Pokka Lapland. If you go here, you should also stop at the Pokka town which is only a gas station / bar but they have really good lonkero there!  more »
