Activities in Kivitunturi

What can one do in Kivitunturi?

Walk on Marked Trails

The Kivitunturi Nature Trail (5.8 km) provides a wide-ranging glimpse into the nature of Eastern Lapland. Information boards along the trail present information on the geological history and nature of the area. The main Nature Trail can also be combined with the Sotsonportti Tour (approximately 3 km).

See the Sights and Scenery

Pirunkuru and Kivikuru are quartizite bedrock ravines formed in fracture zones. The Kivitunturi Nature Trail crosses the Pirunkuru suspension bridge and the Sotsonportti Circle Trail descends to the bottom of the Kivikuru ravine.
The Kettukumpu scenic overlook offers a beautiful view of Vasatunturi Fell. On a clear day, the summits of Pyhätunturi can be seen 50 kilometres away. The Sotsonportti scenic overlook also offers an outstanding view of the surrounding landscape.
Roughly a 15 minute drive from Kivitunturi is the Wilderness estate of Tarkkala (www.korvatunturi.fi), which is a cultural-historically important homestead preserved from the time of the Lapland War and an example of Finnish wilderness life from years past. Visitors are welcome to explore the site on their own.
