The well-maintained cross-country skiing trails can be accessed directly from the Hotel Vuontispirtti grounds and take you on a tour of the fells or the nearby surroundings. There are over 80 kilometres of maintained trails, eight kilometres of which are lit. The skiing routes can guide you to the fells of the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park where you can use the wilderness cabins of the park to take a rest. During the skiing season you can even ski from one end of the fell range to the other!
The popular Hetta–Pallas trekking trail travels just five kilometres from us and you can reach it from right by the hotel! The route taking you over the tops of the fells covers a total of 56 kilometres, giving you an experience of the True Lapland.
Vuontispirtti is located at a distance of around only a kilometre from the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park. The distance to the closest wilderness cabin, Monttelin Maja, is five kilometres, after which the views of the fell tops open up in many directions.
Departing from Vuontispirtti you can also experience the other varying nature trails in the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park, sights and other places of interest. The Pallastunturi Visitor Centre is just over the other side of the fell. See more about the Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park and its services here.
Opportunities in the naturally picturesque and unique environment
The nature surrounding Hotel Vuontispirtti is unique and its true beauty firmly embraces even the most experienced of travellers. The sandy bottomed Lake Vuontisjärvi at the rear of the hotel offers a great catch for fishermen – summer and winter. Fishing permits can be purchased from the hotel reception. You may like to experience Lake Vuontisjärvi with a rowing boat, guaranteeing true relaxation in Lapland’s most handsome natural setting.
More fishing opportunities are provided by the great Ounasjoki River at a distance of only a couple of kilometres from the hotel. The River Ounasjoki, flowing a distance of 360 kilometres, is the largest river within the Finnish borders that has not been harnessed for hydropower. Ounasjoki is also a fantastic destination for canoeing enthusiasts, and its various classes of rapid water sections provide challenges for many. Read more about the Ounasjoki River here.
