Urho Kekkonen National Park – Aurorapolku Trail
The Aurorapolku Trail (1.2 km) close to the centre of Saariselkä takes you into the lap of nature in the Urho Kekkonen National Park. On Aurorapolku, you can enjoy the midnight sun during the summer. In winter, you can experience the polar nights and get in touch with wintry nature. If the sky is clear, you can admire the starry northern sky or may even see the magnicent northern lights, the aurora borealis. The day-trip hut along the trail provides shelter from the frost, snowstorms, rain and mosquitoes and forms an excellent base for nature observation.
