  • The laser light show in the sky was "on point"! Would have given it 5 stars but had to kill reindeer and climb inside to stay warm definitely killed my buzz.
  • Great hiking area with beautiful views and clean nature, but better come prepared for the weather. There are some free to use cabins around the area
  • 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!
  • Beautiful Lapland nature with well maintained trails and vast area to roam.
  • I have a two-week hike in Urho Kekkonen National Park behind me. The hiking routes are excellent and there are many rest and camp sites in the area. I slept in my hammock but I saw many who carried a tent with them. If you are interested in studying a clean nature, I recommend you to visit UKK National Park. Visitors who respect the rules for setting up a campfire, who carrying the garbage to the starting point and those who respect the rules for fishing will help to keep the park free of charge in the future as well.
