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!
