Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park

Please note, that skiing or walking on the ice of the Kesänkijärvi Lake is extremely dangerous because of the invisible holes in the ice. If you want to ski on the lake, we recommend you to use the unofficial trail made by the ski cafe owner. Walking or skiing on the lake is always at your own risk.
