Overview
More
Riisitunturi National Park represents the fell and hill landscape of Koillismaa district at its best. The most valuable features of Riisitunturi Fell are the colourful hanging bogs on the slopes, and on the top of the fell the breath-taking scenery over the Lakes Kitkajärvet and the forest landscape of Posio. In the snowy forests, trees are covered with ”tykky”, frozen snow deposits, which in the blue moonlight just seem unreal.

We were there hiking with our snowshoes and it just so happened to be a very bad weather. Snow was coming down on us hard and we couldn't see almost anything. If the weather would have been nice this would have been a better experience!

We visited in May, in the late evening. It was raining so the view was not as good as it would otherwise be but it was beautiful nonetheless. Good walking gear is essential although the route is not especially tough, it is very exposed to...More

We loved walking around this park, the route we took was undulating but not as strenuous as other walks we had taken in the area. Decent walking attire is essential. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery on a clear day and the variety of landscapes the...More

I loved this place even though it was misty and you couldn't see very far, the snow was immense and the White Queen could easily have come into view. Equally the moving topiary from the Shining were there. Fabulous place.
