Welcome to Urho Kekkonen National Park Customer Service Kiehinen 

Kiehinen Customer Service in Saariselkä provides professional hiking and tourist information services. The exhibition On the Finnmark Trail introduces the surrounding area's diverse wilderness destinations. You may choose to hike from one wilderness hut to another towards Urho Kekkonen National Park, or perhaps make a canoe trip on Ivalojoki River, known for its gold-digging history. Kiehinen is also the location of the tourist information point for Inari municipality.
