- 7 Days / 6 Nights
- Self-guided tour
Individual arrival at Levi
The first peak is on the programme 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.
Levi – Äkäslompolo
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.
Today you can choose between an easy circular tour around the lake and a challenging route. The longer tour leads from Lake Kesänkisee through the Pirunkuru-gorge and back into the centre of Äkäslompolo.
Circular Walk Äkäskero
Transfer to Äkässäivo. From here you always head East across remote and untouched scenery. You ascend through dense forests onto the bare crest of the hill Äkäskero. After the crossing you visit an ancient pilgrimage site and take a quick look at Lake Äkäsjärvi. After that you walk back to Äkäsmylly and enjoy a transfer back to Äkäslompolo.
Round trip Kellostapuli
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.
Individual departure or extra days
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.
