Utsjoki's hiking trail/ 25 - 35 km,0
Why locals love it
The Utsjoki hiking trail, 25 km or 35 km, starts right in the center of the village and takes you through Johtalanvaara to a desert hut at the southern end of Lake Koahppelasjärvi. From there, the route continues through the hut on Lake Námmáj to Lake Mantojärvi, where the distance is 25 km.
Why you should visit it
The route becomes a ring route and it accumulates a length of 35 km, when you still hike the trail section from Mantojärvi back to Utsjoki. Along the route there are small wilderness lakes and river valleys, and the peaks of the surrounding fells offer magnificent views. The route is marked with orange-tipped wooden poles.
