Riisitunturi national park is the perfect wandering spot in summer and winter alike. The crown snow-load covers the arctic forest in the winter, creating a magical scenery, while in the summer you get to experience the majestic views to Kitkajärvi lake. Not to mention the unique Lappish fall foliage! Hikers of all levels can explore well looked after trails and the wilderness cabins where you can have a break or even stay for the night. Wintertime in Riisitunturi provides great snowshoeing, skiing and fatbiking possibilities. Fatbikes are available for rent in the wilderness café Tykky from Feb 20 onwards. You can make a reservation at the spot or online. (Online reservation only in Finnish.)
Please remember the outdoor etiquette while exploring the national park.
Trail maps are available in retkikartta.fi, but remember to bring a paper or offline map with you.
