  • Auttiköngäs is a dream-come-true destination for day trip visitors. It is easy to reach and has magnificent landscape. The area´s main sight and attraction is the 16-metre-high Auttiköngäs falls. Auttiköngäs was established as a protected forest in 1995; later it was named a landscape forest.

    Today Auttiköngäs is part of the Northern Finland old-growth forest protection program.The forest in the Auttiköngäs area is so old that it can be called primary or virgin forest. There has never been any organised logging in the area. The terrain is varying and jagged. The top of the large Könkäänvaara Hill reaches a height of 240 m, while Ispinävaara Hill at 190 m is definitely not as high but it is much steeper.

    There is a 3,5 kilometres long nature path, which is mainly paved with boardwalks. Along the path there is a suspension bridge and a view tower. In the starting point there is a lean-to shelter and an open cottage Uittopirtti.

    Auttiköngäs is a north-south orientated fracture in the bedrock, which is millions of years old. During the ice ages, the continental glaciers wore down and rounded off the forms of the fracture. At the end of the ice age, Auttiköngäs belonged to a glacial river system running from the Kemijoki River valley to Korouomaa and on to Kuusamo. In the area of Auttiköngäs, raised beaches created during the time of Ice age, Ancylusjärvi Lake.

    During this trip we will be hiking a nice distance in the woods. We also climb up to the tower for admiring the view over the taiga forests. We will be back in town at about 4 P.M.
