What's Currently Happening in Tiilikkajärvi National Park 

Situation on the Trails

(Updated 20th of January 2023)

So far, there are no skiing trails in Tiilikkajärvi National Park. However, you can use forest skiis and open up your own trails. The making of the skiing trails in Tiilikkajärvi will be started at week 8, if the ice and snow conditions are optimal. The skiing trails would thus be ready for skiing in weeks 9 and 10.

A 3.5 km long maintenance track between Sammakkotammi and Uitto has been marked with blue reflector sticks. The track is used for maintenance drives inside the national park. You can move around on this maintenance track for example with forest skis or snowshoes, as long as you remember to watch out for snowmobiles performing maintenance drives.

No winter maintenance on the road leading to Pohjoisniemi parking area

(Updated 16th of November 2022)

During the winter, only some roads inside the National Parks are maintained. Check the availability from the location maps and leaflets. For example in Tiilikkajärvi, there is no winter maintenance on the road that leads to the Pohjoisniemi parking area. Sammakkotammi parking area should be reachable also during the winter time.

Just to be sure, winter hikers could pack their cars with shovels and a small bag of gravel incase of thick snow sheets and icy slippery hills.
