Introducing Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park
Finland’s third-largest national park forms a long, thin area running from Hetta in the north to the Ylläs ski area in the south. The main attraction is the excellent 55km trekking route from the village of Hetta to Pallastunturi in the middle of the park, where there’s a hotel, information centre and transport connections. You can continue from here to Ylläs, although there are few facilities on that section. In winter, Pallastunturi Fell is a small but popular place for both cross-country and downhill skiing.
