"Tsarmitunturi is the smallest wilderness in Finland, but in terms of landscape it is an exceptional fell wilderness in Inari municipality near the Russian border. The heart of the wilderness is formed by Tsarmitunturi upland area and Akalautpää, which are separated from each other by the deep Pahakuru gorge.

The fell area is bordered by spruce firs and old Scots pines on the north side. The slopes ooze cool moisture, and the waters of the small slopes form streams that eventually flow into Luttojoki or Paatsjoki."

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. We hike about 40 to 50 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.
