Postman's Trail Hiking Holiday in Utsjoki, Lapland

Postman's Trail Hiking Holiday in Utsjoki, Lapland

Kenestupa is the original guesthouse, which was built in 1888 for the postmen carrying post from village to village as the disctances being very long in Lapland. Post was carried every second week and later three times a week 130km from Inari to Utsjoki by foot, by boat, by horse, by reindeer or by skiing depending on the season still in 1950's.. Six kilometers of the post trail has been restored and you can follow it up to the Arctic hills. There are small mountain lakes rich of fish on the way, where you can try to catch a fish by angling.

Hiking trail (63km) through the Kevo Strict Nature Reserve  ends 200m from Kenestupa and offers opportunities for overnight hikings. Kenestupa is located by the main road (E75/4), which makes it possible to arrive at Kenestupa by a route bus (Ivalo-Utsjoki).   

All Kenestupa cottages are plain and simple but the views are outstanding. There are only a few hotels in Finland , which are able to offer as magnificent views as Kenestupa cottages. For nostalgiclovers we recommend to book the original postmen's cottage.  

Postmen's trail suits also for families with children.Kenestupa offers good opportunities for fishing, a rowing boat is rented out for 5€/hour (incl. life west).
