On the track of reindeer herders and wolves
Aakenus is the largest fell in Ylläs with over 10 km of trail above the tree line. Our journey starts from Totovaara, right next to Aakenus, approximately 35 minutes drive from the village. A long and gentle uphill trek through the snowy forest awaits us. Up over the tree line we start seeking for the old reindeer herders cabin. Once found, we heat up the cabin and grill sausages, eat salmon sandwiches and enjoy hot drinks in cosy and warm atmosphere. On our way back we’ll climb to the highest point of Aakenus and get rewarded by the spectacular view of Aakenus’s bold top and the whole Ylläs area.
