  • Unbelievable, what a beautiful can be winter! Has everything for the active winter rest and calm walks. I recommend a small cafe "KOPARA" where for 12 euros you can enjoy a hot delicious soup and venison. The after skiing. Address Luostontie 1160, 98530 Pelkosenniemi

  • We were only staying for a little snowshoeing. It is well organized, with tourist/bar at the base. It is designed especially for skiing but it traces that go well for snowshoes. We got one of these and it was a very pleasant excursion, in the dark of course. The only problem is that you have to move away a little from the slopes illuminated for snowshoeing in the darkness, the ski area is lit almost a day. Black bread making at the bar is odd but very good, we've got one baguette is loved.
