  • 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.

  • I love this place! Even though it is small, it is one of my favorite parks in Finland. We did the light blue loop trail Tunturiaapa and the section of the red Karhunjuomalampi trail that goes through the beautiful Isokuro gorge. This is the best hike if you have only a single or even half of a day because it shows the variety of the park with the gorges, the taiga forest with birdlife from siberia and the peat filles "aapa" bogs at the south end of the light blue loop. There is also a birdwatching tower in the bog if you are interested in that. This is truly the stereotypical Finnish forest landscape. Peaceful and serene, the minute you leave the visitor center (which is great).
  • Lovely place to chill, meet locals and see great natural landscapes. Huskie farm and reindeer ride are worth the price. Great experiences and lots of fun!
  • One of the most beautiful places I have been in finland.. In the winter its just magical and breathtaking... If you just pass you can see trees covered with snow and ice like out of this world.. Nearby is famous ski resort which is known for freeride zones and also a lot of cross country races
  • Great outdoors with great friends and family!
  • Wonderful place with a lot of adventures posibilitys. A holy place for the Sami.
