    Stunning views and great outdoor area for various activities. There’s plenty of hiking trails and the Autumn colours were amazing in September. Absolutely awesome hiking experiences!

    Pakasaivo is not only a beautiful nature spot formed after Ice Age, but also a sacred mythological place for the Sami people. Well worth a visit despite the bit rough road.
    Nearby is also an open fireplace and a kota where you can prepare food. Well maintained toilets by the paring lot.

    Keimiöniemi Fishing Cabins (Keimiöniemen kalapirtit) are one of the Seven Wonders in Finland. This was a dwelling place as early as in the Stone Age. First wooden fishing cabins were built in the 16th century.

    Nowadays there are still 18 fishing cabins and storehouses made of log. Most of them were built in the 19th century. Some of those preserved fishing cabins are as old as from the 18th century.

    These fishing cabins are privately owned and they are still in active use. So you can't go inside these cabins. However, you may always (24/7) walk around them, on courtyards, and admire these historical buildings. And it is totally free without any admission fee. Notice that there aren't any services in the area (no toilets, no cafeteria etc).

    Keimiöniemi Fishing Cabins are situated in Muonio (Keimiöniemi Peninsula), on the Lake Jerisjärvi, between Kutuniva and Rauhala. There is a small sign from the road between Kutuniva and Rauhala. By car you can drive next to these fishing cabins (less than 200 meters from the parking place). If you come by bus, you have to walk two kilometers from the nearest bus stop.

    Nearest services (toilets and a cafeteria) are situated in Hotel Jeris (2.5 kilometers) and in Hotel Tunturikeimiö (aka Keimiötunturin Maja, 3 kilometers) if they are open. Remember to visit Keimiotunturi Fell in the same way, because it is situated only 3 kilometers from Keimiöniemi Fishing Cabins.

    This is one of the most interesting historical sites in Lapland!

    Walked up to the "summit" of Särkitunturi on a nice and sunny day in late July. I got a car ride from Muonio to the parking at the trailhead in the morning and took the bus back to Muonio from Särkijärvi bus stop (about 3 km walk from the trailhead) in the afternoon. It's a very popular hike, so expect a lot of other people on the trail, especially from noon on. But it's worth it, the landscape is beautiful, the trail is easy going all along, first through forest, passing by a nice big "kota" shelter and fire place (+ outhouse), steadily uphill to and above the tree line into beautiful landscape with amazing views. The established trails ends at the lake, but if you walk on slightly to the right, there are some paths that will lead you to the highest point.

    One on my favs at Muonio. Choose a clear warm day and good hiking shoes (not sneekers), water and enough lunch/snacks to enjoy this hike. The landscape on the summit is amazing but it's usually very windy up there so take your windstopper clothing with you in case (autumn especially). On summer time lots of ants going around lower path. Do not stop in one place for long time. In August blueberries all over the forest.

    The trail start: park your car in the backyard of Tunturikeimiö and go left from the building to find the path.. it goes first on the left in the pine tree forest. After a while you'll arrive to a wooden reindeer fench. Just go through it (by lifting some parts of fench poles aside..and remember to put them back as well) and continue a wide path down and in a while it turns up...a partly rocky and steep trail.

    The views get better and better when you go up. When you get above the trees the landscape opens up. Go around and enjoy. Lotsbof nice spots sitting on the rocks and have lunch.

    Note: there are 2 peaks - the lower peak is about 1 km away if you want to hike there as well.

    You can continue your hike to Sammaltunturi and from there to Lommoltunturi - this trail is located to Northern side of summit stones. Have fun!

    It's a lovely little museum of local history. It exhibits many items of the past - telling about daily life, farming, crafting. It's a group of rustic style buildings with item collections. It's worth a visit if you're interested in history - how our forefathers' life looked like. You can see interiors of an ordinary house, you see how people lived.
    This place has charm.
    Check the opening times before you go, it isn't open all year round.

    We spent a half day yesterday with Valtteri for some snowshoeing in Pallas NP. We went up and down the Pallaskero hill, and it was great! The wind made it quite cold at the top, but the clear views were amazing.

    Back down Valtteri made a fire in the hut to warm up and cooked a nice warm lunch for us. He brought some homemade berry juice for us too.

    We finished the day with a quick visit at a reindeer farm. We had a good time with Valtteri, a well known guide who took all the time for us. We can recommend!

    The resort boasts several attractions. First is the reception, shop and restaurant where excellent service is provided by all the staff. The food quality is excellent and plentiful.
    Next is the reindeer park and the sleigh ride through the wilderness which was a top attraction and very pleasant (but not exactly thrilling).
    The domes accomodation are fantastic but it's a walk to the showers and wc. A must do experience.
    The snow hotel and ice bar is not for everyone, it's really really cold obviously, and staying warm in a sleeping bag is tricky.

    Such a great experience. The guides are incredibly helpful and informative. Definitely recommend using the thermal suits though, it was -28° when we went (very cold!). The dogs are great! So friendly and loveable. They really do enjoy running. Such a unique experience and totally worth doing!

    Who would have thought that you would survive in the lake of minus 1 degree?!?!? But we did, and quite enjoyably.

    There're several different types of sauna to try on before dipping yourselves in the icy cold lake. The feeling was awesome. After a nice heated charcoal sauna, the a shockingly freezing dip, your body will all be released from all muscle pains.

    Would love to try it again.
