"The Muotkatunturi wilderness area is the most desolate of wildernesses: there are no marked routes and there are few deserted huts. The rolling fells, beautiful Peltojärvi and flowing rivers create a distinctive look in the Muotkatunturi area. Wilderness is mainly fell pines and fell fabrics, but there are also old pine-dominant forests and apa swamps in the area. The lands and waters of the area are aptly described with sonorous Sami names."

Participation in this hiking requires a little previous hiking experience, but you do not need to have your own hiking equipment. Additional information about equipment. Day trips vary about 10 kilometers long, and we take breaks at regular intervals. Some parts of the hiking places are in pathless terrain, so walking might be a bit physically tougher than walking on the marked trail. We hike about 50 to 70 kilometers long in total, which can still change according to the situation of the route.

You will learn a lot of useful information about hiking and learn how to navigate the terrain and read the map, as well as camping routines.
