Early autumn is the greatest time to be outdoors. Nature often starts changing its colours in August and keeps going as the weeks pass. But don’t be surprised if a gust of snow falls out of nowhere! The colours are fleeting, which only makes their beauty more intense.
You’re never going to run out of places to hike in Enontekiö. There’s everything from kid-friendly nature paths to demanding wilderness epics – the legendary Hetta-Pallas Trail is our number one draw.
Have the ride of your life in Enontekiö’s highlands and forests! Our diverse trails are some of the best in Finland.
The legendary Hetta-Pallas hiking trail is at its best in the autumn. Here, you really feel the fells with all your senses.
Saana wears her best outfit in the autumn. The monolithic fell that rises next to the village of Kilpisjärvi is named Saana. Climbing to its summit is a taxing yet rewarding hike.
The Malla nature reserve is a great place to admire the autumn colours’ beauty. The trail takes you through rugged fell landscapes to enchanted forests and a serene waterfall.
The Arctic wilderness is a tempting challenge for experienced hikers. There are four wilderness areas in Enontekiö: Käsivarsi, Tarvantovaara, Pöyrisjärvi and Pulju. Each has its own character and biome.
Northern lights are often visible in the autumn as the nights get darker. Wear warm clothes, bring a thermos and be prepared for the light show of your life!
Would you like to have your own cottage by the fells? Nothing beats coming back to a warm cabin after a long day. Get something cosy or luxurious – it’s your choice.
Our modern caravan parks have services from saunas to kitchens. Some also welcome tents.
Adventure may await, but the friendly staff at our hotels will wait on you. Enjoy the modern luxuries but worry not, as you’ll be on the hiking trails as soon as you’re out the door.
Accommodation alone can be quite an experience here. You can spend your night in a wilderness hut and listen to the stove’s crackle or just as well admire the northern lights in a warm glass igloo.
Would you like to test an e-fatbike or whitewater paddling? Don’t worry, our rental shops will take care of your every need!
Guided tours give you a chance to safely experience the Arctic while learning more about our unique nature. Our local guides can take you to the wilderness as well as the nearby nature.
