Route description
The route goes through fell peaks, slopes and forests. We first hike up to Riisitunturi, where we take our first break and admire the view from the top of the fell to the fell, lake and forest landscape.

From the top of the hill we descend towards Uusilampi and Uusisuo, which we cross along the duckboards. After the swamp, we follow the Riisisuo and walk along the slope of Nuolivaara. Before crossing Riisisuo, we see, an old sacrifice place.

We cross the Riisisuo along the duckboard and see, among other things, an old meadow barn that stands alone in the swamp.

From the swamp, we ascend towards Soilu shelter, where we prepare hot drinks on the open fire and eat our picnic lunch.

After the break, we climb to the top of Riisitunturi and visit the elongated Ikkunalampi. From Ikkunalampi, we continue towards the parking lot and return to Ruka.
