Arctic Circle Hiking Area

A summer landscape photographed from the air. The green forest surrounds the Vaattunkiköngäs rapids.

Here you can cross the Arctic Circle and experience the wilds of Lapland just outside Rovaniemi, the home of Santa Claus. Stroll to the fine falls at Vaattunkiköngäs and Vikaköngäs. There are also accessible nature trails in the area. The river offers excellent fishing opportunities. Winter wanderers can explore the hiking area's forests and open marshes on skis or snowshoes.
