Iivaara Fell is a distant, quiet, magical place that's far away from everything. It is the highest fell in southern Kuusamo, and from the summit, you can see all the way to the horizon.

What to expect?

  • Sit under silent snowy spruce trees, and taste some snow, see the fells of Russia to the east, and listen to the arctic silence. We'll tell you about the nature around us and our life here in the north. And of course, we will have a break by the fire with a trail meal and hot berry juice. For every campfire we make, we also plant a tree somewhere in the world.

  • Tour duration is 7-8 hours including transfers (1+1 hour) from Ruka, and the distance is about 8 km. The route is partly challenging with a steep and rather long uphill hike.
