Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park Reviews
Suosittelen kaikille luonnosta ja vaelluksesta pitäville! Reitti on hyvin merkitty ja polut hyvässä kunnossa. Autiotuvat ovat siistejä ja varustelultaan todella hyviä. Tuvissa on kaasuhellat ja osassa... more »I recommend to all of nature and hiking lovers! The route is well marked and tracks in good condition. Wilderness cabins are clean and equipped as to be really good. Options include a gas cooking as well as some at least perusruuanlaitto-making facilities. Tent places can be found in the vicinity of Andalucía. The firewood can also be found in Andalucía. Landscapes were really great! 3 3 < <
this area is really nearly endless and limitless for cross country skiing - only limitation is your own condition (and maybe weather :-) ) just let your soul dangle more »
Upeat maisemat, ei hissijonoja, rinteet hyvässä kunnossa. Hotellissa hyvä palvelu. Luontokeskuksessa tietoa ja hieno näyttely. more »Spectacular scenery, no lift queues, the slopes in good condition. It offers good service. The nature center offers information and a great exhibition.
The hike across the park is a very nice route. The nature is very diverse on different altitudes. The hike is a bit demanding, because of long ascents and descents.
Beautiful views, guide at Nature Center was very helpful and knowledgeable, enough shops, but not too many.
Third best nature I've ever seen.. highly recommend
Wonderful nature, lots of trails for hiking, little huts scattered along the way for grilling saussages or sleeping.
Easy access to real wilderness. Fells and vast forest all around.
