Hetta-Pallas, 4 days hiking tour
Urho Kekkonen National Park
Urho Kekkonen National Park is a piece of the most beautiful Finland. Thousands of hikers have found their way to this Park and returned there again and again. A good network of cabins ensures that we get the equipment dry even in the wet summer. We can choose the route so that we go towards Kiilopää through the wilderness with our own routes and our own group, or so that we go closer to the centers of Saariselkä, when there are more people hiking in the same landscapes. There are two route options: Rajajooseppi – Luiro – Kiilopää or Kiilopää – Luiro – Kiilopää. Duration: 5 days.
