This was a great place to visit on cross country skis. The views were varied, and the light in the afternoon made for some great photos.

Good thing there is a stopping point where you can sit and warm your hands,roast a few marshmallows or sausages if you have them....theres a river that runs through too,so,we had glimpses of it...was tempted to scoop some water,but alas,i had no idea how deep the snow was at the edges..ha ha
And i learnt to use snowshoes too...😁

This was my first visit to the Urho Kekkonen National Park. There are many marked hiking paths and cycling routes all over and of course one can hike freely all over the place.
I hiked to Iisakkipää, Kiilopää and Luutalammi and the scenery was just great: lovely open fell scenery, lovely small brooks and reindeer.

We've visited UKK in summer and in winter and enjoyed both times. You can do a lot of different activitites hier: hiking, biking, croos country skiing, etc. Views from the hills are wonderful and you can run in to reindeer while there.

Nice place for xc-skiing. Tracks are opened mainly from February. Would guess that best time for travel would be March.

As the second biggest National Park in Finland this park offers peace and tranquility just few steps from the center of Saariselkä village. You have easy walking routes coming to the border and then short and longer snowshoeing trail. Short one you can do on any weather but the longer one takes you up on the fjell so you don't want to take that in a bad weather. Skiing tracks are going more deeply inside the park. At the summer hiking routes are going everywhere.

We stayed in Kiilopää hotel and so we could easily enjoy thus beautiful park in wintertime. Today we climbed the hill. Snow shoes would have made our walk easier, but nevertheless we enjoyed it. The path is very well marked. The views were spectacular and we even saw some reindeers. You could listen to the silence.
If you prefer cross country skiing, than this place is great as well. There are many tracks. Ad inexperienced cc skiers we did a tour of 22km, which was a little bit too much. But as the path is illuminated you can take your time. We loved it!
