We took a drive down from Rovaniemi which took just over an hour. Easy to find.

We only saw two other couples on the entire 3.5km trail - if was a cold day with snow around which perhaps puts the locals off visiting. The cafe was closed.

The trail is very well marked and once you are away from the force of the dam and former log chute, there are literally no sounds other than nature to disturb.

An inquisitive reindeer followed us for a while but given it was winter the rest of nature was keeping warm elsewhere.

There are a few steps up and down and as it was slippery underfoot we covered the route in a steady 2.5 hours.

A lovely way to take in the fresh air and see some of Finland’s natural beauty.

A 16-meter waterfall, surrounded by pristine forests. An old log flume sits next to the falls as a memento of the time the river was used to transport logs (late 1800's to 1970's). Lovely scenery and well worth a visit. The walking trail now incorporates even special steps for dogs on the metal stairs.

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.

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.

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 just in one day.

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

We stopped here on our way from Ruka to Rovaniemi. Wonderful walk in the nature and afterwards a lovely snack in the very nice cafe. There is also a very interesting little museum on the site.
