Finland’s two largest national parks are located in the Inari-Saariselkä resort: The Lemmenjoki National Park and Urho Kekkonen National Park. Added to these, there is the Kevo Nature Reserve in Utsjoki and the Sompio Nature Reserve in Vuotso.

The Urho Kekkonen National Park was founded in 1983. It is the second largest national park in the country. The northern part consists of highland fells and wilderness, with several fells exceeding 500 metres in height.
The park area boasts Finland’s densest network of day cabins and wilderness refuges, which are great for hiking. The most renowned attractions of the national park are Lake Luirojärvi and Sokosti Fell.

Lemmenjoki was founded in 1956. It is the largest national park in Finland, as well as one of the largest roadless and uninhabited forest wildernesses in Europe. Stretching over 70 kilometres, the River Lemmenjoki flows through the national park. As such, a riverboat trip through a valley wilderness is a very worthwhile experience. Signposted trails, wilderness refuges, rental cabins and designated campfire sites greatly facilitate hiking in the Lemmenjoki valley and the goldfields.

The country’s most beautiful and significant national parks boast well-marked hiking trails and networks of wilderness refuges with the magnificent backdrop of the fells.
