Overnight excursion to Hanhipirtti

Duration: 18 hours / Difficulty: Easy

We start hiking from the yard of Levi tourist office. Our destination is Hanhipirtti, which is located behind Pyhä-fell. The hike is about 12 km long with a couple of route options. The first one goes over Kätkä fell and the second, a lot easier, goes behind Kätkä. On the way we learn about arctic nature and enjoy the midnight sun. When we arrive at Hanhipirtti, the guide heats up the sauna and you can swim in lake Pyhäjärvi. After that, it’s time for a late-night buffet and sleep. The following morning after breakfast we head back to Levi. Hanhipirtti ‘s main building dates to late 1800s. It is amazingly located next to a lake and by fells in the middle of nowhere.
