Activities in Iivaara Nature Reserve

Trekking

The 9-km round-trip trail in Iivaara is called Iirinki Trail. There is an open wilderness hut along the trail with a dry toilet and campfire site.

Walking expeditions in the wilderness

Iivaara and the surrounding large wilderness area offers a great chance to explore the Koillismaa region by hiking outside the marked routes also. You can return to the Iivara Trail's starting point either from the southeastern or the southwestern side of the hill chain. Note that hiking outside the marked routes requires experience and wilderness skills.

Skiing

The 40-km cross-country ski trail from Lahtela village to Iivaara is open from 17 February to 30 April. Around 11 km of the trail passes through the Iivaara area. There is a connecting ski trail between the main trail and Näätälampi open wilderness hut.
