  • A beautiful place to visit. The best way to get there is to go by skis, you can choose different lengths of tracks to go there. The signage regarding the ski tracks could be better though.

  • Riisitunturi’s national park provides several day hikes to the top of the fell. Really beautiful route, feels like in Lapland. The nature is different than in Ruka routes. Very good signs and a place....  more

  • Recommended hiking destination when you are in the area. We had a good day of some snow and sun in November and it paid off.
  • We went there at the beginning of winter when the first snow was falling. The scenery wasn't too special when everything is covered white and it was mainly trees and a lot of snow (obviously). Wasn't too special wouldn't go there again, at least in this time.
  • Amazingly beautiful hiking place whatever is the season ,Spring ,Summer,Autumn,or winter all of the season you need to see if you're around this place.
  • Nice trekking trip, big parking place to park or camp.
  • Amazing trails in the snow. Doable on foot but better with snowshoes/skis.
