Hobbies

Hiking tours

The terrain at Maanselän Etappi is ideal for hiking tours: the UKK hiking path winds smoothly over hills, shelters and gallow sheds serve as resting-places. You can make yourself acquainted with history by visiting the Täyssinä peace frontier stone some kilometers away. The UKK hiking path was named after the former president Urho Kekkonen, who wandered this route in 1957. This hiking path is also part of the European long distance hiking path (Euro hiking path E 10), which starts in Nuorgam and ends in Gibraltar.

Skiing

For skiers the vicinity of Etappi offers wild landscape and peaceful nature. Skiing tracks (4 km and 13 km) wind in the neighbourhood of Etappi. Everybody can find a suitable track for him- or herself. At your request we also supply you with a snack for your skitour.

Fishing

There are numerous lakes and ponds around Etappi within a radius of 10 kilometers where one can catch also big fish. Bring us the fish and we´ll fix you a delicious meal.
