Full description
Depart Rovaniemi in the morning and head 90 miles south in the direction of Riisitunturi National Park, a breathtaking hiking destination in the heart of Lapland.  The hillsides of the park are decorated by rare slope mires and the bare fell tops offer breathtaking views over Lake Kitkajärvi and the forests beyond; the trees in the park are so densely covered with snow that they turn into fantastic white figures. Here you will plunge into a new reality, escape from big city hustle and bustle and return home with new creative ideas. The three-hour hike is suitable for all ages and there will be a stop for hot drinks in the middle of the experience to keep you warm. Humid climatic conditions contribute to Riisitunturi's natural beauty. The park has some of the finest sloping bogs anywhere in Europe and boasts a myriad wonderful photo opportunities.

    We had a very good time spending a fee hours at the park, the scenery is incredible. The drive is a bit long and we had poor weather so we had to drive slowly, but our guide Kriistina was fun to talk to and made the whole day better. If you get a clear sky the sunset could be amazing.
