One of the best place around Rovaniemi, just one hour drive, 80 km on south east direction. Beautiful river and waterfalls. Very nice and easy trail around, 3,5 km, 1- 1.5 hours. Excellent for a half day trip.

I highly recommend visiting Auttiköngäs! Wonderful walk, scenery, small forestry museum and cafe. We even saw beavers at the base of the waterfall.

We hike the Autikongas on a warm sunny day in August. The terrain was interesting and the hike was fun, with lots of steps, a suspension bridge and a tunturi. I am not the most athletic person, but I took my time and remember it...More

Very enjoyable walk in the woods. Wooden path is a little slippery when wet. Many berries and mushrooms, but surprisingly no mosquitoes in August.

Nice and easy hike with many steps & wooden planks along the way. Waterfall is close to the carpark and was a little underwhelming, perhaps it is ~ spring time only. Nice bbq place along the trail & observation tower for the midnight sun.

Auttiköngas is a beautiful place, but be warned. If you go without a mosquito net/repellant you will be miserable.

Auttikongas gives you a perfect break if you're driving from Kuusamo to Rovaniemi. You can do a small hiking tour (+/- 3,5 km) or just watch the waterfall. The waterfall is located at 100 meters from the parking spots, so kids could watch this too.

Very old Finnish forest with a wonderful river and rapids. Earlier used for transporting timber from the far away woodlands.
