We hike the Autikongas on a warm sunny day in August. The terrain was interesting and the hike was fun, with lots of steps, a suspension bridge and a tunturi. I am not the most athletic person, but I took my time and remember it as one of my favorite events in Finland.

Very enjoyable walk in the woods. Wooden path is a little slippery when wet. Many berries and mushrooms, but surprisingly no mosquitoes in August.

Nice and easy hike with many steps & wooden planks along the way. Waterfall is close to the carpark and was a little underwhelming, perhaps it is ~ spring time only. Nice bbq place along the trail & observation tower for the midnight sun.

Auttiköngäs, just ~70 km from Rovaniemi, is an awesome place to spend a day with friends or family. The hiking trail is relatively easy and short (3,5 km)and there is a place where you can make fire and eat during your hike. We didn't visit the cafe but the nature and köngäs itself are amazingly beautiful and easy to visit... More

Auttiköngas is a beautiful place, but be warned. If you go without a mosquito net/repellant you will be miserable.

Auttikongas gives you a perfect break if you're driving from Kuusamo to Rovaniemi. You can do a small hiking tour (+/- 3,5 km) or just watch the waterfall. The waterfall is located at 100 meters from the parking spots, so kids could watch this too.

Very old Finnish forest with a wonderful river and rapids. Earlier used for transporting timber from the far away woodlands.
