Multiday hike Hetta-Pallas
Moderate | 5 days | Starting from 749€
Tighten the laces of your hiking boots, this is the classic hiking adventure you don’t want to miss! The trek, private for your group only, is the oldest hiking route in Finnish Lapland. The path from Hetta to Pallas takes you through the national park with stunning views, following the line of ancient fells that once were mighty high mountains.
The adventure begins by picking you up from Kittilä or Kolari (more about how to get here below). After two hours drive, we reach Hetta. We start by a boat ride across a lake, to the northern edge of the Pallas-Ylläs National Park. During five days of trekking, we walk up and down fells, from open arctic tops down to magical old forest valleys. We sleep four nights in tents and drink from free-flowing crystal clear and clean streams. On the last hiking day we ascent to the highest peak of the Pallas fells, Taivaskero, 809 meters above sea level. Admire the view and breathe in the cleanest air in the world!
The route is 55 km in length and takes 5 days to hike. We like to take it easy and leave time to enjoy the atmosphere. But we can hike it in 4 days if you are in good physical condition.
If camping in tents doesn't appeal to you, it’s possible to sleep in shared cabins. Just let us know in advance. Our local guide takes care of you from start to finish.
