  • The rice fell is a great destination for hiking. In winter there you can see the beautiful snow-covered trees and a beautiful view of the friction of the ice.

  • Rice-fell rice Rietas is also a great fit for winter travel. During the winter, the peak was quieter than during the summer season. 2018 at Christmas, it was quite a bit of snow and we did not get snow shoes on the other top and we were the first to go down. I recommend an early morning in the winter time, it was awesome to see the day brighten up. So gorgeous colors I would never have imagined seeing.

  • It is winter and the snow covers the forest giving this park an unreal aspect of incredible beauty. It is really a beautiful place where it is good hiking and discovering the Finnish nature.
