"Paistunturi is a large continuous wilderness area in the Northern Lapland. The landscape typical for the wilderness area consists of fell heaths and mountain birch forests. There are also aapa mires and palsa mires in the area. Kevo Strict Nature Reserve, which is the largest strict nature reserve in Finland, divides Paistunturi Wilderness Area into two parts.

Camping gear

You can borrow hiking equipment from friends/relatives, or rent them from outdoor stores or online if you do not have your own yet. Additional information.

Group size

The maximum size of the group is 8 people.

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 from 10 to 15 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. During the hiking, we avoid the use of wilderness cabins in order to be calm within our group. 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.
