This is a lovely place for hiking with your dogs. The 4 km long hike "Riisin rääpäsy" is quite easy. Old spruces with old man's beard are magnificent. There is a path to the peak in summer and also in winter. In winter you can...More
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

Trail length ranges from 2 to 11 km. During the longest hike you will...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.

now you are going just to the right place. The snow art is beautiful there. For short time visit it is best just leave your (4W-) car to start point = parking area and just ski stright to the top point(s) and by another route back. You will see a lot.
