Finnish-Lappland

In the Ylläs-Pallas National Park.

Ylläs-Pallas National Park is considered one of the most beautiful regions in Finnish-Lapland. Characteristic for the extremely varied scenery are the so-called ‚Tunturis’, long-drawn-out and bleak lines of hills. Our week of walking starts in the well-known winter sport resort Levi and takes you to the cross-country skiiing mekka Äkäslompolo. En route you walk through remote forests, discover sparkling lakes and enjoy amazing views from the peaks of the chains of hills onto the densely wooded expanse of Finnish-Lapland.

Itinerary

The first peak is on the program today: you walk along rocky sections up the hill ‚Kätkätunturi’. Once on top all your efforts are rewarded big time, since the view onto the nearby lake Immeljärvi is breathtaking.

In the morning transfer to Lake Pyhäjärvi. You walk along the shore and follow a narrow trail through the forests and swamps until you reach a little wilderness hut on the foot of the ‚Lainio’. From there you proceed onto the bare crest of ‚Fjells Kukas’, where you can enjoy the view onto the vastness of Finnish-Lapland, before you reach Äkäslompolo.

Transfer to Äkässäivo. You walk through a gorge to a lake, where there is also the Seita rock, an old cult and sacrificial place of the Sámi. You continue through a lonely and untouched landscape and through dense forests up to the bare ridge of the Äkäskero hill. After crossing the hill, you have the opportunity to visit another place of worship and have a look at the enchanting Äkäsjärvi Lake. Afterwards you hike to Äkäsmylly to a water mill and transfer back to Äkäslompolo.

Today’s hiking tour takes you around Mount Kellostapuli and across the ravines of Kellostapulinkuru and Varkaankuru. This diverse hike leads you along hiking paths, wooden gangplanks and small ascents and is considered the most beautiful section of the entire tour. You walk through the forest along Mount Kellostapuli to the Kellostapulinkuru-ravine, nestling between two mountains. Here you get to marvel at the rugged rock faces of the ravine.

Tour character

The route leads you mainly along well-maintained and easy to walk on forest paths. In the swampy areas you walk in parts over wooden gangplanks. During the ascent onto the ‚Tunturis’ surefootedness is required since some sections are covered in gravel. Occasionally there are steeper sections. A good basic fitness level is necessary for the numerous ascents and descents.

Finnisch Lappland, ein Traum!
Wir waren im September diesen Jahres über Eurohike in Finnisch Lappland. Die Natur dort und die Betreuung besonders in der zweiten Unterkunft waren traumhaft. Es waren wunderschöne Wanderungen, bestens beschrieben und sehr gut zu bewältigen. Jeden Tag dachten wir, schöner kann es nicht werden, aber es wurde schöner. Reiner Balsam für Seele und Körper. Für uns hätte diese Reise gerne länger sein können. Für die individuelle An- und Abreise hätten wir uns mehr Unterstüzung in Form von Informationen zu Flügen, Bus und Bahn in Finnland gewünscht.

Entspanntes und abwechslungsreiches Wandern
"Doppeltes Glück" - traumhaftes Spätsommerwetter und mückenfrei (!!), einzigartige Landschaft und absolute Ruhe - die Tagestouren waren leicht zu bewältigen, alles in allem extrem erholsam - Verlängerung absolut empfehlenswert (in unserem Fall 2 Zusatznächte).

Natur pur und magische Ruhe
Sehr schöne und abwechslungsreiche Wanderwege. Man wandert durch unberührte Natur und trifft kaum andere Wanderer. Wir haben wie sonst nirgends bisher in Skandinavien, viele Rentiere gesehen. Beide Standorte waren perfekt ausgewählt. Das Schwimmen an der Beach in Äkäslompolo ein besondere Herausforderung wie auch ein Genuss. Finnische Seen sind rein, aber richtig kalt! Besonders hervorheben möchten wir die Gastfreundlichkeit unserer Gastgeber in Äkäslompolo, die alle Gäste mit besonderer Herzlichkeit empfangen und betreuen. Alles in Allem ein wunderbares Wandererlebnis!
