Riflessi di Kiikala.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Oggi passeggiamo nella zona di Kiikala,  non lontano da Somero.  Si tratta di un’area boschiva estesa per circa 250 km quadrati,  nella quale si trova anche qualche lago.  Ogni 40 anni circa viene tagliata solo una porzione di foresta per la produzione di legname,  oppure viene sfoltita per dar modo agli alberi di crescere in modo corretto.

Il bello di quest’area e’ che essendo poco abitata,  da’ l’impressione di trovarsi in mezzo a chissa’ quale foresta misteriosa!  In realta’ nella zona ci sono parecchie seconde case,  specie in riva ai laghi e si trova anche il paesino di Kiikala,  ma la densita’ abitativa e’ di circa 7 abitanti per kmq. 

Grazie alla legge sulla proprieta’ di tutti,  ognuno puo’ andare e godere dei frutti del bosco.  Noi ci andiamo almeno una volta l’anno a cercar funghi e mirtilli.

Reflections of Kiikala.      

Today I’ll take you on a stroll through the forests of Kiikala, a 250 kilometres wide woodland area not far from Somero,  in which also a few lakes are lovely located.  The area is kept essentially for the production of wood:  every 40 years only a sector is cut or pruned to make space to bigger trees.

It is particularly nice to visit this area as it is not densely inhabited and gives the impression of being in a mysterious place!  Actually a few cottages are scattered here and there,  especially by the lakes,  but the general population density is about 7 inhabitants per square km.

The law called Everyman’s Right allows everybody to go there and enjoy the forest fruits:  we usually go once per year to collect blueberries and mushrooms.

  3. Come sempre foto bellissime di un paesaggio favoloso. Sai cosa mi colpisce? la foresta con alberi così alti le cui fronde lasciano passare tanta luce; io mi ricordo quando andavo in vacanza in una località in Val Seriana, le passeggiate nella pineta, buissima! Mille volte una passeggiata lì!
