THE MELODY OF THE ÄKÄSJOKI

YOUR GUIDE'S INVITATION:

"The river flows there under the first bridge. After a kilometer in the woods observing the tracks of wildlife, we meet with it again as we hike a wooden footbridge.  Let's have a stop. And let's look at the backdrop of the boreal forest aligned with the rapids... The colors of the rising or setting sun are often sublime. One more kilometer and we could head straight to a small hut to share a snack around the fireplace, but I want to show you that river again from the top of an unexpected cliff. Could it be as sacred as the one near the stairs leading to the hut? Another kilometer to cover, then let's listen one more time to the melodies of Äkäsjoki. Wait! I may take you further upstream where some old barns, granaries, and watermill recall the ancient times of that river located on the edge of Yllästunturi National Park."

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: That gr
eat lake is one of the most spectacular landscapes or even maybe the most spectacular panorama in the whole of Northern Lapland.

This is an easy itinerary away from the crowds and the beaten paths around Levi or Ylläs. Half way we take lunch in a picturesque log cabin hidden in the forest near the shores of that lake.

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: In Finnish Lapland, we don't need high mountains to get rewarded with grand and breathtaking views. What an amazing world that fell unveils when we reach its summit! On so many occasions it becomes a patchwork of lights and colors, mountains and lakes, bogs and forests. In every direction, there is so much to contemplate. On our way back we stop in a large open kota and have lunch by the fireplace. Maybe you will also have the privilege to make a special encounter with the Siberian jay or other tits!?

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: This is a less demanding version of our most popular snowshoeing trip -scroll down and read more about "Oxygen
 11"- for those who want a full adventure day in the open wilderness of Finnish Lapland but with the opportunity to journey on a slower pace and to climb less. There's something fascinating to wander through that valley. When the Winter sunshine goes down into it then it's to offer us the most amazing lights of the season and to literally spark our souls. Also, you sense the adventure spirit when you understand that you're entering into a place that is kind of closed the rest of the year because of some very sponge grounds and multiple creeks and streams. On a higher spot, we take a break for a solid lunch by the fireplace. We complete the experience with a time of contemplation on the top of the "Little Black Hill" where from you can admire the gentle lines of the Pallas Fells range. Over the years we can tell that some nice wildlife has nicely interrupted that time of contemplation on the hill. Expect to receive that special treat from nature too!

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: 
Pallastunturi National Park is one of the most beautiful nature spots in Finnish Lapland. Your guide has explored every single corner of it and has discovered some unique and amazing perspectives on its mountain range, lakes, open spaces, and forest. For this full-day snowshoeing trip he guides you into a program of adventure that can be divided into two parts. First, we go on higher grounds where you can feel walking on the moon. The bird's view of the major lake of the park will amaze you! Then we reach the shores of that same lake. There you discover an impressive world of immensity. We conclude our journey with a lunch in a wilderness cabin.

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: Recently a local media asked me as a guide which spot was my favorite one in the whole region. I'm in love with so many but if I had to choose then I answered this one that I've called "Oxygen". Read about it. It takes you to the top of the fells where you can breathe the purest air in the world and where you can let yourself be amazed by the panoramic view of the mountains of Pallas National Park. The view has a very unique angle that you can't get anywhere else. The lonely trees exposed to the freezing winds and the snow storms add to the landscape. After a bit demanding ascend we go down into the forest where a lovely hut is ready to welcome us for a solid lunch
. Nearby you won't miss that old authentic log cabin which marries with nature so well. And just because it is so beautiful we have added one more kilometer in 2023. Now you're ready to hike the "Oxygen 11" trip, a unique itinerary made in Lappitrek.

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: Levi Fell is known for its many lively ski slopes and the beautiful views from the summit. However, your local guide at Lappitrek is eager to show you more. Much more. Come to explore the remote corners of the fell where everything looks so untouched. Select different view angles and get new perspectives on that small Arctic mountain. It is not a short easy lazy snowshoeing trip. We do take time to explore, go up, enjoy unique views, take a break in a hut, and stop at the famous Santa Cabin. For a unique experience expect the guide to take you early or late depending on the lights or the state of the snow.

DURATION: the full day

MEETING POINT: In Kittilä or Levi

THE EXPERIENCE TO LIVE: The true Finnish way of life is a good snowshoeing hike to the top of one of the highest fells in the area followed by a long relaxing time in a luxury sauna by the lake. We have created that exciting combo of two great moments of adventure as the sites of these two are separated by only one kilometer!  Save your whole day for this program as we will try to rediscover the virtues of uniting ourselves with the natural elements and slowing down the pace of our lives. Indeed that hike cannot be a round trip rush to the summit forgetting to enjoy the wide-angle views of the lakes on both sides of the mountain, the immense taiga that stretches to the Swedish border, and the long range of Pallas fells. Likewise, a sauna experience cannot be a schedule to obey. We will take time to discover the different Lappish atmospheres filling the several sauna rooms, and of course to take a few dips in the icy water in the refreshing waters of the lake.
