This unforgiving wilderness hides a gem of Finland’s hiking destinations, the Ropitunturi area. During this five-day trek in remote wilderness, we will traverse the open tundra terrain of Ropitunturi (945m) on no official hiking trails surrounded by small lakes, crystal-clear rivers, and majestic Lapland mountain landscapes. During the trek, we will also aim to climb up to the summit of Ropitunturi if weather conditions allow.
The daily distances vary between 10km-15km. We will be sleeping in shared two-person tents every night with cosy sleeping bags, cook on the gas stoves and drink straight from the streams. The weather conditions can be anything. In the summer it is good to be prepared for both cold days and nights, as well as scorching heat. The Lapland mountains can always surprise you!
During the trek, each hiker will carry their own gear in a backpack and also participate in carrying common equipment such as food. This trek provides a safe opportunity to explore harsh open tundra and gives you a lifetime memory of truly wilderness adventure.
Before this trip, you will get a comprehensive equipment list and have an online meeting with the guide and group to go through the upcoming trek in detail. In addition, a WhatsApp group will be created among the trekking group, where you can exchange information and ideas of the trek.
