  • 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 »
  • One of the hidden gems among the national parks in Finland. Well marked trails make orientation easy. The fire place and wilderness hut is easily reached from the car parking. Lovely nature...  more »
