In this episode, we follow a big imaginary loop and make it come to life, a circuit of more than 3,200 kilometers, the Trans-Laponia, a road without night.
During this circuit, we discover some unusual lifestyles along the shores of the Barents Sea and of the Baltic. In Turku, we meet Jenna and her tango gang, as well as Terho Inkinen, the last fisherman to uphold a thousand-year-old tradition of wood-smoked herring in the Rauma area. Each night, the sun continues its recital between the clouds—harbingers of a change in the weather but also a change of landscape.
About Mythical Roads:
Whether remote or packed with tourists, recent or old, famous or forgotten, certain routes are paved with legends. This series explores itineraries that have made history across five continents—some roads and rivers that separated countries, and others that formed links, creating pathways for traders, fortune-seekers, evangelists, conquerors, and travelers. As historical symbols, these routes now ignite the imaginations of millions of people in search of adventure and freedom.
The original and poetic approach of this series casts a new light on these mythical roads. Throughout the journey, the routes unfold through the eyes of the men and women who live and work along them, and who continue to sustain the legends.
Personal adventures alternate with extraordinary explorations, unforgettable encounters, and surprising developments.
