Hiking to Rytivaara

Take a hiking tour to explore the history of the Syöte area and the spectacular nature of the national park! The ten km hike takes visitors to the wilderness, which is inaccessible by road, lying at the very heart of the national park. The route leads hikers not only into a beautiful nature setting, but back in time to the 1800s. The restored Rytivaara croft's farmyard and buildings welcome visitors about midway through the trail. The ancient farm is a living tribute to the old days and the magical atmosphere will help you forget all about your busy modern lifestyle. The marked trail to the croft winds through impressive scenery along the banks of small streams and through spruce forests bedecked with beard lichen. Before arriving at Rytivaara, you can explore mementos of the old days along the trail, such as a meadow sauna.
