In autumn, nature glows in shades of yellow, orange, and red - a time we call "Ruska" in Finnish. Birch and aspen trees transition from yellow to orange-brown, while blueberry bushes turn red. With the arrival of the first night frosts, mosquitoes become scarce. This period, which marks the highlight of the snow-free season, offers the ideal conditions for hiking, paddling, and immersing yourself in the picturesque landscape of Pallas-Ylläs National Park, known for having the purest air in Europe.
During your stay, you will be accommodated in a rustic and cozy wilderness cabin located by Lake Madejärvi. The program includes two days of hiking and two canoe trips. You will also be introduced to the world of sled dogs in our farm with 40 Alaskan huskies.
Far away from the stresses and bustle of everyday life, you can find tranquility and embrace the serenity of your surroundings. Moreover, September presents a chance to witness the mesmerizing northern lights.
On the tours, accommodation will be provided in our comfortable log cabins at Madejärvi, complete with a lakeside sauna. The spacious and atmospheric log cabin offers beds on two floors, with a stone oven situated in the center.
