If you want to see some raw Finnish fell nature, I warmly recommend to hike the Hetta-Pallas path (approximately 50-55 kilometres). Just remember there is a lot of uphill and some challenging paths... more »

We drove up to the Pallas hotel and information centre. The centre provides you with a hiking map and clear instructions. We took the longest hike of 9km to the two main tops at 785 and 810 meters..... more »
It's a beautiful place for snowshoes, skiing or walking. Take your time and don't make too much noise, you'll see birds and small animals who aren't afraid of coming close. You must stay until the sun goes down, the light plays in the trees, it's gorgeous!
Amazing piece of reserved nature, worth a visit.
When you go there for summer hiking be prepared for a lot of mosquito.
Beautiful area and a great place for a casual hike with many paths to choose from.
Nice and quiet place to stop. Not so much food etc. where to choose but enough though.
