We visited the national park for a few hikes in early November and it was a beautiful experience! Like any national park in Finland, it is very well looked after and the hiking trails are set up very well.

First thing: we were in Lapland, but we don’t do winter sports. We visited Saariselkä to hunt Northern Lights and to some winter hiking. The Urho National Park offers (besides skiing activities) also some winter hiking tracks. The track to the top of “mount” Iisakkipää...More

Good routes are maintained daily. Varius landscapes from open fjells to arctic forests. Beautiful white snow. Nature at its best.

The Uhro Kekkonen National Park is an unmissable destination if you are visiting Finnish Lapland. There are many paths to do with snowshoes or with cross-country skiing. You can rent the necessary equipment in a store with a very kind staff. By the way, you...More

Beautiful in winter, with a great number of ski trails (starting in saariselka or Kiloopaa). You can warm up by making a fire and even sleep one night in daily hut.

The snow covered trees and the river that flows make it so magical. When the sun set over the snow cap trees it was just breath taking. Dress for the outing for its extremely cold.

We made a husky safari through the park and it was wonderful during peak winter season. There was so much virgin snow there and the tranquillity of the place was energizing. We enjoy our safari so much! Beautiful snowy scenes all around.

We grabbed some sledges and went on a walk and sledge to the Aurora Hut. We followed the sign posts and enjoyed the snowy scenery, over the bridge up into the fells. We did it at 4pm so it was dark but we found the...More
