Pallas-Yllastunturi National Park Reviews & Ratings
It's a beautiful place for snowshoes, skiing or walking. Take your time and don't make too much noise, you'll see birds and small animals who aren't afraid of coming close. You must stay until the sun goes down, the light plays in the trees, it's gorgeous!
Beautiful area and a great place for a casual hike with many paths to choose from.
Nice and quiet place to stop. Not so much food etc. where to choose but enough though.
What's not to like? Wide open spaces, well marked trails and a good hut network.
Nature virtually untouched under a magical blanket of snow. One can easily hire snow shoes and skiing gear. While the Ski Resort facilities are old, they're still classically rustic and charming. Good value for money. Photographer's dream.
