Lemmenjoki National Park

© noheadimg

Lemmenjoki National Park is the largest protected nature area in Finland. It is excellent for trekking, but you'll need to be well prepared, as it is a rough, desolate arctic area, with only several wilderness huts where you can stay. Bears and wolves live in the area, so you should be extra careful where you camp. It is very easy to get lost in Lapland, as all hills look the same, so you'll need a good map and compass as well.

The Lemmenjoki River that runs through the park offers several fantastic vantage points, especially where the river cuts deep through the landscape. The Ravadasköngäs waterfall is also in the Lemmenjoki National Park.

Lemmenjoki National Park is in the north of Finland, some 950 km north of Helsinki. The best way to get there is by bus from Inari. It is also possible to reach the park by boat on the Lemmenjoki River. During the winter temperatures can easily drop to -50°C and it is not advisable to stay in the park then. The best time to visit the park is during the months of May, June or July, when it is light 24 hours a day, because of the parks latitude.
