  • I stayed at Santa's Hotel Tunturi, but it was a national park right next to the hotel. It was a snowy scene because it went in winter. Cross-country skiing seems to be popular!

  • In Nordic skiing or on foot, the different loops are well indicated one of them leads to a kind of refuge that can accommodate about fifty people on reservation in the winter to see the northern lights, summer for the midnight sun

  • We visited this national park at the end of winter snowshoching up to the top of the mountain to get a breathtaking view of the whole snowy panorama. It is also worth visiting in summer, on foot or by bike to enjoy a panorama of completely different colors

  • Such a beautiful place! Went for cross-country skiing at this national park. It was my first time doing cross-country skiing and I didn’t have any skiing gear, rented full set of equipment from the rental shop at the entrance cost 15€. The snow fall made my entire skiing experience extraordinary!
  • Best area to calm down ans to enjoy nature
  • Beautiful place. Great for hiking, skiing, biking and anythig outdoors.
  • Amazing place. Me and my family visited Finland back in 2016 on the Tundra region. It was an amazing stay at a hut, perfect for spending winter charm.
  • Amazing nature. Beautiful forest, rivers, fells. One of the best places in Lapland
