Escape to Nature
The hike is meant for people who would like to try hiking and spend an overnight surrounded by nature. The hike will be about 20 kilometers long with an overnight in a tent. The meals will be prepared by an open fire or on a camping stove.
There will be a chance to try fishing in the middle of the breathtaking and clean nature. The potential catch will be cooked over the open fire. There will also be opportunities to do berry picking and enjoy other things that the Lappish nature provides.
The hike begins from the banks of the river Äkäsjoki. We will then continue to lake Pyhäjärvi to spend the night there. You will be spending the night in a tent, wrapped up nicely in a warm sleeping bag. There is no electricity or running water available on campsites but just the stillness, silence and clean air.
During the evening your guide will tell stories about his own treks such as the one where he trekked alone for more than 750 km across eight different wilderness areas in Northern Finland.
On the following day we will conquer the top of the Aakenustunturi fell and then enjoy a lunch there. The route will take us to a nearby road where we will finish our hike.
Please note, that we will carry backpacks that weigh about 20 kg for 10 kilometers per day up and down the fells. The weather can be unpredictable changing from sunny to heavy rains and strong winds. The temperatures can vary from very cool (zero degrees) to fairly hot (25 degrees Celcius).
