However, there is an alternative route during the summer. One can take a boat across Kilpisajärvi and then follow the trail up past Kuohkamijärvi to Koltajärvi, which is where the Three-Corner-Cairn is located. This photograph was taken by one of the ASTRON engineers during a brief time off during the HBA commissioning in July.

Although there are a few small dingheys, this is the only boat of any reasonable size on the entire lake. However on the tourist map by the side of the lake, there is a dashed line showing the path that it takes and, in the English subtitle, it is labelled "Shipping Lane"!
