"Trek through this magnificent arctic fell country on foot or on skis, finding your way to a welcoming wilderness hut for the night. This vast park extends eastwards from the resort of Saariselkä through the wilderness of Finnish Lapland all the way to the Russian border. The remote fell of Korvatunturi is famous among Finns as the home of Father Christmas. The night sky is illuminated by the Aurora Borealis in winter and the Midnight Sun in summer."

Who can join?

If you do not have experience yet, we recommend to participate in some of our camping courses. Learn more about the courses. Additional information.

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 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.

Registration by email at or SMS +358 443 041 863. Tell us which hiking you would like to join. The first payment is 100€ for booking fee, and I will send you the bill through email. Remember to pay the rest of the hiking one month before the starting date. After registration, you will be added to a WhatsApp group, where hikers can get to know each other and agree about transportation if needed. Participants will also receive a link for an online meeting and more detailed information about the hiking.
