  • One of the hidden gems among the national parks in Finland. Well marked trails make orientation easy. The fire place and wilderness hut is easily reached from the car parking. Lovely nature experience...  more »
  • We touted rice for the Rietta, about 11km, in three hours with a small dog. A much calmer day route compared to a small bear tour. The variation in the terrain is challenging for good fit. On the route two along suitable distance from each other. Grate and wet after rainfall.
