Magical snow fairy tale scenery. Excellent tour! Small group, friendly and informative guide. Hiking itself is about 3 hours including 1 km uphill ( after you go down to the canyon at the beginning), not very intense and definitely worth it. Including the way on a road to the canyon and back it is 6 hours, 7 including pick up and clothes change. Campfire and tasty small barbeque with hot drinks were also great and rewarding after the hike.

Our guide Luka was very friendly and an accommodating host. He gave us some good info about old Finnish practices in the wilderness and also some good hiking tips. We had good amount of stops in between the hike and had plenty time to take pictures. Luka taught us how to make fire without lighter and matches. We enjoyed the hike very much and was totally worth 7hrs we spent.

It was magical, walking in this frozen forest felt like being actually frozen in time! Absolutely recommended! Also Mike (I'm sorry if I got it wrong) our guide was amazing! You can see he loves what he does and he tried, successfully, to pass his passion to the group as well.

Very nice hike. Wonderful landscape. Small meal near a fire. Friendly guide who took great pictures for us. I recommend this great activity. You will take full eyes. Attention not suitable for children and also the hike is physical.

Wonderful experience hiking with a friendly tour guide and a group of awesome people, nice view and journey!You wont regret to see a breathtaking frozen waterfall by your own!
