Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park Reviews
Adembenemend winterlandschap dat niet lijkt te eindigen...goed aankleden is wel de boodschap....mooier dan wat je in gedachte hebt more »Breathtaking winter scenery that doesn't seem to end... Good dress up is called the message.... Nicer than what you have in mind
Snowshoing is the best way to see this stunning place in the snow. You can stay on the flats or attempt some of the fells - the views are 100% worth it! more »
It's a beautiful place for snowshoes, skiing or walking. Take your time and don't make too much noise, you'll see birds and small animals who aren't afraid of coming close. You must stay until the sun goes down, the light plays in the trees, it's gorgeous!
Nature virtually untouched under a magical blanket of snow. One can easily hire snow shoes and skiing gear. While the Ski Resort facilities are old, they're still classically rustic and charming. Good value for money. Photographer's dream.
