Ounasjoki & Kemijoki

Rovaniemi is situated where Ounasjoki (the Ounas river) runs into Kemijoki (the Kemi river) we crossed one or more bridges daily while we were there. One of the last days we were there we biked west along Kemijoki until the road suddenly disappeared into the river - there we stood waiting by the gate while the little ferry came from the other side just to pick up the two of us and our bikes. It was even free, but then the service only runs from 6 am till 11 pm...

Apart from that we spent quite some time relaxing on the rocks by the river, reading books and/or enjoying a picnic. Tue insisted on bathing in both Ounasjoki and Kemijoki.
