Challenge yourself to the Kätkävaara Nature Hike Trail where you’ll experience the beauty of wild Finnish nature!
Following the river of Kemijoki, we will travel to southern Lapland and experience the breathtaking beauty of Finnish landscapes. This is a fairly long trip, as we will travel 55km from Rovaniemi to Kätkävaara Nature Center.

We will take you on a guided hike to Kätkävaara Nature Path where you'll see lush Nordic vegetation and observe arctic animals in their natural habitat. The hike itself is challenging, but we will do everything we can to make the entire experience as comfortable as we can. Expect rocky areas, muddy trails and steep sections, especially in the second part of the hike. On this 7km guided hike, you will have a personal guide, and an opportunity to learn more about the Finish wilderness.

The trail itself is famous for berries. You can find blueberries, cranberries, as well as various mushrooms. It's safe to pick them in the summer months, and the beginning of fall, but it's not advisable to do that without consulting your guide. If the weather is nice and dry, we can go swimming in the Arctic Kätkä-lake. This area is also known for plenty of lakes and creeks and busy fishing spots.

Wild berries season July - September.

While we enjoy the hike, we will tell you more about vegetation - plants and flowers and tell you more about arctic and forest animals. Halfway through the trail, we will reach the top of Kätkävaara fell where we will rest, relax and enjoy a delicious meal. As we eat our lunch we will talk about old Northern Finland, nature, animals and just simply decompress and enjoy the view.

Frequently asked questions 

(See all questions and answers here)

- When is a booking for a tour with Nordic Adventures confirmed?


A booking is confirmed when you receive a confirmation email. If you think you have made a booking and have not received an email confirmation, please send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form, and we will figure this out together.


- How do i pay for a tour with Nordic Adventures?


You can pay through the internet, through our website. This is by far the easiest, safest and fastest way to reserve and pay for your adventure. You will receive a voucher as a confirmation via e-mail which you will need to bring with you for your trip. You will always get a voucher by email: REMEMBER TO PRINT IT OUT AND BRING IT ALONG OR MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN SHOW IT ON YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICE!


- Do i have to book in advance?


There are a few different ways you can book our trips. First of all, you can book almost all our trips right here on our website. There is a booking window on each tour page and we do recommend that you book and pay for your trip there, preferably in good time as we keep our groups small and some tours tend to sell out.

If the trip you would like to book is not bookable online, you can call or email our office directly, the phone number is +358 40 744 2567. Another way is to send us an e-mail with an inquiry through our contact form. What we need to have is your name, how many people are in your party, where you are staying, a way of contacting you either an e-mail or a phone number and what tour you are trying to book.


- How is it best to be ready for a pick-up for a tour with Nordic Adventures?


This is a nice question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated in the voucher. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide. Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.


- Do you provide transportation to your adventures?


Most of our tours (please see specifications under each tour) include transfers from accommodation in Rovaniemi city area. It is included in the adventure price.

The pick up is usually 5-20 min before the start of the safari (time in your voucher). Transportation back is immediately after the end of the safari.

We try to provide exact pickup time one day before the start of the tour by email or text message/whats-app, which is why it is important that you provide your valid email and phone number when booking a tour.
