Even not so trained older people can hike and enjoy real Finnish Nature. So clean climate. So quiet forest. Such the views!

I would hate seeing too many tourists in this fantastic environment, so let us start with the negatives first: it is quite a drive, and at this time mid March really cold and windy. You also need a serious hike of at least 3.5km through...More

We were there hiking with our snowshoes and it just so happened to be a very bad weather. Snow was coming down on us hard and we couldn't see almost anything. If the weather would have been nice this would have been a better experience!

Very nice hiking, not the least as crowded as Little Bear trail in Oulanka Ntl Park. The top of Riisintunturi surprises you with a spectacular view of woods, lakes and islands. Trail length ranges from 2 to 11 km. During the longest hike you will...More

We loved walking around this park, the route we took was undulating but not as strenuous as other walks we had taken in the area. Decent walking attire is essential. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery on a clear day and the variety of landscapes the...More

I loved this place even though it was misty and you couldn't see very far, the snow was immense and the White Queen could easily have come into view. Equally the moving topiary from the Shining were there. Fabulous place.
