Mettonpahikko

One of the most mysterious places in Ylläs: Open bare rock, fast pine forest, cliffs and view to the fell of Kukas. Week starts with experience like no other. 

A piece of map from the neighboring terrain, because the secrets of Mettonpahikko went already under the snow 😉

Kukaksenlaki

This stage will be unforgettable: an open fell, grooves, fast pine forest and view to the majestic Ylläs fell while running to the finnish. The location of the event center in the top of fell is something unheard of. 

The terrain at the top of Kukas is fast and the landscape epic. Is this the most beautiful and best orienteering terrain in Finland?

Kukastunturi

How does it feel to run a nice long orienteering in the fell? We mapped entirely one fell on a map so you can enjoy the full splendor of the fell: the slope, the peak, the swamp, the stream and the landscape. Some anthill may also be on the map. 

This is our favorite: speed, amazing scenery and challenge.

The rest day will be full of activities

At this point, you can head to the village or for activities. For those who want to orienteer more, we will create high-quality exercises around Ylläs to quench their hunger for orienteering. Various terrains with the pleasure of running are promised.

Puuraja

Surfing among spruces, nice and demanding control points on the mountain slope and a small piece of open fell with a majestic view of the wilderness. The Tuomikuru tree line at the gates of the national park will surprise 😉

The week is crowned by terrain, where the pines turn into mountain birches and when punching on the horizon you can see Tunturijärvi and Kuertunturi. The fast terrain, where even reindeer thrive, is the awesome way to end the week.
