Hiking and outdoors

Northern Lapland is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts

The Lapland North region is a paradise for hikers. Here is where the two largest national parks in Finland are located, as well as several wilderness areas. Well-marked trails and Finland’s densest network of day cabins and wilderness huts create an exquisite setting for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. The possibilities are endless and suit everyone – you can go for multiday trekking adventures in the wilderness, or on a short walk with children to the close-by fireplace. In every case, the nature experience is memorable. Well-marked trails often offer breath-taking views and have information boards on the area’s flora and fauna. Outdoor resort Saariselkä is a particularly popular hiking destination thanks to the easily traversable fell terrain, the untouched natural environment and a dense network of wilderness refuges and trails.

You get the most of your nature trip with a professional guide who can tell you more about the arctic nature, Finland’s outdoor philosophy and Everyman’s rights. Why not pick wild berries ripened by the midnight sun, or learn some useful wilderness skills while you are at it?
