Riisitunturi National Park

During a forest fire warning (ilmatieteenlaitos.fi), fire is only allowed at covered campfire sites that have a flue or in fireplaces at huts, but only with extreme caution. The one who lights the fire is always responsible for its safety. Making a fire at campfire sites can be banned locally.
A hiker sits in a shed and reads a book. In the background you can see the mountain and marsh landscape.

Humid climatic conditions contribute to Riisitunturi's natural beauty. The park has some of the finest sloping bogs anywhere in Europe. In winter the spruce trees that cover many of Riisitunturi National Park's hillsides are clad with a thick coating of condensed frost, creating a photogenic white forest. Enticing trails suitable for day-trips or longer treks welcome hikers in summer and snowshoe trekkers in winter.

Suitability: Suitable for people of all ages and beginners as well. A good destination for cross-country skiers, snowshoers, trekkers, bird watchers and photographers.
