Mountain bikers can discover the national park on particular trails, such as the Ylläs-Levi mountain biking trail (over 50 km long). Downhill fans who enjoy the speed will love the Ylläs Bike Park with its different levels of difficulty.
Hikers find a great variety of possibilities – whether on a nature trail, on a circle trail or on a multi-day trip like the Hetta-Pallas Trail or the Ylläs-Olos Trail. The Fell Lapland Trail is a trail network which leads hikers through the whole national park. It can either be hiked independently or with bookable services.
