With the skiing season getting closer to its end, I was eager to ski through the northern part of the Pallas-Yllästunturi national park.Continue reading “XC Skiing from Hetta to Torassieppi in the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park”
With a friend we decided to go for a short skiing trip into the Pallas-Yllästunturi national park. Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent travel restrictions, there are only few tourists in the area. A unique chance to be in the national park during the main season, without it being overcrowded with tourists.Continue reading “Skiing trip in Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park”
After my recent one week skiing trip to Porojärvi, it seemed that the weather would allow for yet another short skiing trip in the Enontekiö area. As I haven’t visited Hannukuru during this season, the sunny spring weather suggested that – almost as a tradition – this could be the destination for the season’s last skiing trip. When going there, it appeared reasonable to also take a day to ski up Outtakka and have some fun with downhill skiing as well ..
The weather forecast couldn’t make it more clear: Up to plus 8°C and rain next week suggests that the skiing season is at its end. Yet, the snow is still great, so a skiing trip seamed unavoidable: Time for skiing to a to Hannukuru, in the middle of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park Continue reading “Via Rautuoja to Hannukuru: Last skiing trip this winter through Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park”

Time to enjoy a last trip into the nearby fell area, and to combine that with a sauna turn in Hannukuru, in the middle of Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park.

While I have been traveling for about a week, I was looking forward to come back home to Enontekiö and to take advantage of the snow before it is gone. When a friend told me, he was planning to ski to Hannukuru from Pallas, I thought, it would be a pretty good destination for meeting him and furthermore to jointly enjoy the amazing sauna in Hannukuru.

After a very busy December the idea came up, to find some relaxing days in the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park – or more precisely – to visit the Hannukuru area for a decent sauna turn in the middle of the wonderful nature, and in the middle of the polar night. The plan was to take our (borrowed) forest skiers to go to Hannukuru for a relaxing sauna evening, and to return back home the same way. Fortunately (I have to say), a heavy snowfall made us stuck in the beautiful Hannukuru valley, where we experienced a most wonderful night under the clear full moon sky – topped with some northern lights, just after the snowfall ended.
