One of the most unforgettable hiking trails in Finland runs from Hetta to Pallas. Here, you really feel the fells with all your senses.
From Hetta, most people start off by crossing Lake Ounasjärvi by boat. From there, the path takes you through undisturbed forests and marshlands as well as atop breathtaking fells. The route runs along the chain of fells all the way to Pallas.
There are several campsites and huts along the marked trail. You can also start or end the trek from Hietajärvi or Vuontispirtti. If you prefer more wind in your hair, you can take on the trail on a mountain bike or running shoes. In the winter, the trail is ideal for ski tours
For most of the trail, you’re in the open landscape, so be prepared for any kind of weather.
