Looking at the weather forecast (a cold and clear week), with a friend we decided to go for a one week ski hike. As we both haven’t yet been in the Pulju wilderness area, we thought it would be a perfect time to explore this corner in the south-east of Enontekiö.Continue reading “Ski Hike in the Corner of Pulju-, Lemmenjoki-, and Pöyrisjärvi Wilderness Area”
This year we got early a good amount of snow for skiing. With a friend we decided to take advantage of this fact and go for a little polar night ski hike. We went to Karesuvanto, in order to explore the Tarvantovaara wilderness area also during the snow season.Continue reading “Ski Hike During the Polar Night in Tarvantovaara Wilderness Area”
As the temperatures were forecast to get a bit warmer, with a friend we decided to go to the northern part of Enontekiö. Starting from Kilpisjärvi we wanted to ski through the northern part of the Käsivarsi wilderness area.

Almost like a tradition, also this autumn I wanted to go for a hike in the Pöyrisjärvi Wilderness Area. This year, together with Heidi, we wanted to pick up some old leather-made children shoes, which we discovered a couple of years ago. Starting from Näkkälä, our route brought us to Pöyrisjärvi, Haukijärvi, Maattojärvet, and Stallojärvi, before we finished our trip in Vuontisjärvi.
It has become some kind of tradition for me to spend at least one week during autumn in Pöyrisjärvi Wilderness Area. Also this year I felt the urge to go for a hike and camping trip into Pöyrisjärvi Wilderness Area, even though the hiked distances this year were less than in recent years ..
