Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went snowshoeing here…we walked from northern lights village. There were trails specifically for cross country skiing and others for hiking and snowshoeing. Some of the trails are not intuitively marked but there are lots of maps and markers along the way so we eventually found the trail we wanted. It was very peaceful and lovely…lots of snow at the end of March.

We visited in fall and the fall colours were absolutely gorgeous. We mountain biked for a full day and it proved a great way to explore the beautiful nature!

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.

Oh,we walked this twice....this is quite an expansive area...and we only did a tiny bit of if...walked from Saariselka to Iisakkipaa...wow,the view at the top(i mean,after all the hilly hills that is) and was windy,sleety...qhat a walk!! 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.
