Cross-country skiing . Riisitunturi National Park is 60km from Kuusamo airport which is the closest airport to the national park. Drive pass Ruka and about 6,5 km after passing Ruka, turn left onto the road going to Kitka. From mid January to late April there is a 7km long, maintained ski track in the National Park. Having seen incredible pictures of trees heavy with crown snow (tykkylumi in Finnish) from Riisitunturi, I also wanted to see if the rumours of far-reaching views over Lapland you had from the Riisitunturi fell. There are colourful hanging bogs on the slopes of the Riisitunturi Fell and scenery over the Lakes Kitkajärvet and the forest landscape of Posio. Drive on road 5 (E63) towards Ruka and Kemijärvi for about 31 km. Really beautiful route, feels like in Lapland. Riisitunturi National Park is in the southern part of Finnish Lapland near Posio.The park covers an area of 77 km² and represents the fell and hill landscapes in Koillismaa. The nature is different than in Ruka routes.

Riisitunturi National Park has been on my bucket list for years. The track is fairly easy. It starts from Riisitunturi starting point. The hike is especially nice during winter time. The track starts from Korpihilla Café's parking lot and ends to the fell hut on top of Riisitunturi. Riisitunturi’s national park provides several day hikes to the top of the fell.
