Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park reviews
Stunning, beautiful, landscapes in winter especially at Christmas I would highly recommend visiting . more »
We drove up to the Pallas hotel and information centre. The centre provides you with a hiking map and clear instructions. We took the longest hike of 9km to the two main tops at 785 and 810 meters..... 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!
Amazing piece of reserved nature, worth a visit.
